Friday Report - 0705

 Association News

This has been an extremely busy couple of weeks around the Association.

Welcome, Laura Blease to our Advisory Board. Laura is the founder of Seeds for Eco Communities and you can read her bio on our Advisory Board page.

We are working on an application for an NHS Demonstration and Research Project to build and study a tiny home Pocket Community. We reached out to all the locations that have indicated they support tiny homes and that we have listed in the TinyLivingResource.com. We have received responses from several and we're looking into possible sites.

We have updated our tiny home site design, as well as our POD design to incorporate some great Pocket Neighborhood concepts provided by the architect and author Ross Chapin. The new POD design will be used in the NHS Demonstration Project.

We have reached out to a growing list of suppliers and professionals seeking support for the project, and our team is growing. We will begin listing participants, companies, and products next issue.

We are searching for a property owner in Kingston, Ontario to construct a tiny home as an ADU granny suite on their property under Kingston's new zoning by-laws. We are offering to provide a complete, self-contained tiny home as well as site hookups, utilizing two city grants that would reduce the homeowner cost significantly. This one-time project will become the first of its kind. Details of the project are here…

Tiny Living Resource Additions/Update​

It's been quite the last couple of weeks, and we have been answering questions and clarifying tiny home details with a number of locations. Nothing official yet, but more in the works. Stay tuned.

Hello. Our city in New Brunswick is changing the bylaws to allow tiny homes. I would love to speak to you if possible.

Where is your scale on your image?

Hi Jake. The scale on the wireframe is 1 pixel = 12 inches. We are hoping to develop a true scale design once we have worked out all the details.

A tiny house that is 167ft by 40ft.... Hmmm I think not. Must be more like 5 pixels = 12 inches

The blue rectangle represents the tiny home and is 102px X 432px. This converts to 8.5ft x 36ft. The scale in the attached image is not true, as it has been reformated.
For a scale site layout, see:

The attached png should be to scale.
The grey area around the blue is the pad that the tiny home sits on and is 12.5ft x 42ft which should accommodate hopefuly, even the largest tiny homes.

The to scale POD design is available here:
