Tiny House Village - Earth Day Texas

Tiny House Village

tiny-house-village

For the past two years, Earth Day Texas hosted Tiny House enthusiast BA Norrgard with her mobile house, “A Bed Over My Head.” In 2016, this display will grow into an entire village of unique tiny homes. Visitors can tour these beautifully designed spaces, listen to experts discuss small footprint choices, and learn how they can apply tiny principles to their own lives.

We have 11 tiny houses confirmed for our Tiny House Village in April! Confirmed houses include A Bed Over My Head, Eco Cabins, The Best Little House in Texas, and Tiny House Expedition! The Village will be buzzing all weekend long (April 22-24) so mark your calendars to come out and see tiny living at it’s best. Many thanks to all of the people opening their homes up to us next month!
