Library Presentation Description

Tiny Houses: A Very Different Approach To Home Ownership

The presentation focuses on the basics of planning for and owning a tiny house on wheels; both its challenges and advantages, offering insights unique from the currently popular tiny house themed TV shows. From approximately "how much" to "where to live", it addresses options for their general design, and heat, hot water and electricity choices, among other components. Living in a tiny house year-round is a topic of rapidly developing debate. Learn why something so "cute" and compact could cause so much discussion!

“Tiny House Northeast’s presentation on Tiny Houses as an alternative to traditional homes, brought new people into the library and was lively and engaging. This is a timely subject good for folks looking for a way to live more simply and those just dreaming about it.” ~ Karen McCarthy Eger, Library Director, South Berwick Public Library, South Berwick, Maine
