Event description


Come learn with us and explore opportunities for tiny house communities, regulation and legalization

We will repeat the same Tiny House Community Workshop on both April 22nd and 23rd as part of the Earth Day Texas event at Fair Park in Dallas. Take a morning off from the EDTx crowds and learn how to set up your own tiny house community!

Tiny House Collaborative members have set up tiny house communities—and have worked with their municipalities to explore ways to address regulatory hurdles—in the Pacific Northwest, the Mid-Atlantic, and the South, so their knowledge covers multiple areas of the country!
