While I can’t take any credit for the concept or certainly any of the work, I am pleased that the event is happening.
Though the event was announced early this year, Mitchell recently updated the website and is now actively promoting the conference.
On the website you can see the list of speakers as well as a general guideline to the types of workshops that will be scheduled throughout the weekend.
Mitchell promises a lot of tiny houses on site for convention goers to walk through as part of the experience.
I encourage you to read more about the Tiny House Conference below:
The conference will be held at the McDowell Nature Preserve in Charlotte, NC and onsite camping is available on a first come first served basis. There are also plenty of area hotels or even couch surfing options available.
“We tried hotels, but they wanted $10,000 and it just didn’t seem right for tiny houses. We tried many things, searching for over a year and a half, we finally found the perfect place. A place that fit with tiny houses and the people who follow them, but also a place that didn’t break the bank, so we could keep the ticket prices as affordable as possible. We are happy to announce that we have officially signed a location, a 1100 acre nature preserve!”
This won’t be the first major tiny house event organized by Mitchell. In 2011 he created the first Mini Tiny House Conference in Charlotte. He reposted about the event here.
The cost of the conference is $250 and if you buy your tickets before October 1, 2013, you can get $50 off the cost of admission.
If you’ve thought about getting starting with a tiny house or you’re just interested in the ideas that tiny house builders and dwellers have to share, this is the perfect event for you. Topics will range from how to downsize to how to handle zoning issues.
Full disclosure: I will be at the Tiny House Conference as a featured guest, but, this post is not a paid endorsement of any kind. I am sharing this with you at Tiny House Talk because I genuinely believe in this event and I would write this even if I weren’t participating.
