Smaller living spaces is one important part of the movement toward a more reasonable ecological footprint.
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is hosting a workshop on March 24th and 25th with keynote speaker Pepper Clark, a tiny house entrepreneur and Tumbleweed builder. Ms. Clark's two day talk will include shared building ideas and in-depth information on the philosophy behind tiny home living. The workshop will take place at The Clarion Inn Airport and tickets can be purchased by visiting http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/workshops/asheville/
Pepper Clark's brand of green living has complimented the Tiny Home movement, making it easier for Tiny Home designers, such as Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, to introduce affordable housing to the masses. The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company has set up several events around the US, such as the one in Asheville, to provide the public with real Tiny House dwellers who are using their small homes to make a big difference!
Clark attended her first Tumbleweed Tiny House Company event in 2008. Inspired by the homes and the movement, Clark began building tiny homes and quickly turned the concept into a business. According to Clark, "Smaller living spaces is one important part of the movement toward a more reasonable ecological footprint. We're a free market society driven by supply and demand. To lend momentum to a whole new product category - tiny houses - investors have to recognize the value, jump in early, adopt and promote the concept, and create a supply."
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is proud to have Pepper Clark as an advocate for the movement and their company. The Asheville workshop takes place each day from 9am until 5pm and seating is very limited. Attendees will learn the fourteen basic tools needed to build a Tiny Home, how to select the best materials, the types of heaters and toilets best suited for these homes, and valuable information on window sizing and fire codes.
Tumbleweed Tiny House Company isn’t just a business, it is a movement! With over twenty models available, the company designs homes with a socially responsible platform. Tumbleweed markets houses that range from 65 square feet to 874 square feet. The company is founded by tiny house guru Jay Shafer - who is a recognized leader in popularizing the tiny homes concept.
