Tiny House Expedition on the Green, 6/20/15
Tiny house community showcase, pop-up park & party
A beautiful day of community! Approximately 3,000 folks came out to celebrate home, community, the completion of our tiny house on wheels & start of our expedition. We temporarily transformed a private green space in downtown Winston-Salem, NC (our hometown), into a tiny house community, featuring three tiny houses (two on wheels and one container house).
Engage & inspire local citizens through tiny housing display, interactive exhibits & though-provoking conversation. Spotlight on an innovative, fill-in-the-gaps affordable, sustainable housing solution.
Entertain! Food trucks, live music & kids activities.
Celebrate happy, healthy, sustainable community. Promote positive community building & involvement.
