TinyFest California = a tiny houser's fun fest.
Tiny B, that's me, got to attend the tiny house festival June 15-17, 2018 in San Jose, California.
I was ecstatic to meet Amy Turnbull, President and Kevin Polk, Executive Director, staff members of American Tiny House Association (ATHA). Both serve as advocates in support of legalizing tiny houses, and simply a joy to work with as a volunteer of the event.
While, setting up for the day, Amy and I got to check out a few tiny houses, meet and greet attendees, troubleshoot a few items and take this photo op, lol. The journalist in me also got a quote from her as President of ATHA.
"I was inspired by the turnout at the festival. Large numbers of people continue to rally under the tiny house community banner. Their enthusiasm, their hope and their need for a new housing model challenges me, my board, and all tiny house advocates to step up our efforts to legitimize tiny houses as a new affordable and sustainable housing model."
~Amy Turnbull, President, American Tiny House Association
Kevin introducing VIP speaker, Dan Fitzpatrick, one of the nation's most successful advocates for tiny house legalization and author of Fresno's Tiny House on Wheels as Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) ordinance.
I had the privilege of attending his workshop, "Legalizing Tiny Living: Movable Tiny Houses as ADU's".
Dan is the originator of the plan to legalize tiny houses as ADU's in Fresno. Highly recommend attending his seminar or email, Dan Fitzpatrick: Cityrenewal@hotmail.com to obtain a copy of a PowerPoint presentation you can present to your local city and county planners.
