About this Talk

More and more young adults are viewing tiny homes as a practical and affordable option to get started. Rather than pay high rents for many years and never being able to save up enough for a down payment for a large home, some are choosing to start with a tiny home.

This session looks at two different ways of accomplishing this. Marie Lindahl worked with her dad and brothers to build a tiny house on her parent's property, starting with a purchased shed. In a second example, the students at the high school in Vail, Arizona are building tiny houses that their teachers can rent or buy--greatly reducing the cost of housing for the teachers and allow them to live in the same neighborhoods as the schools where they teach.
