Although the wheels have been turning on this for a few months now, I want to remind all tiny house and sustainable building/design lovers about the Tiny House Fair that is happening at Yestermorrow School in Waitsfield, Vermont this summer.

I haven't been there in a month and I'm really missing it up there in VT! They have a Tiny House design course coming up soon, "Less is More", which is taught by two wonderful instructors.
