Tiny Homes Big Impact | Professional Development Seminar says
A growing movement of down-sizing homes is trending. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet. Tiny or small houses are around 100 - 900 sq ft. Popular reasons cited are environmental and financial as well as owners seeking more time and freedom. These micro-homes are also making large-scale social impact on communities.

This seminar features three projects with different approaches to thinking big and building small. A design/build competition team will present a solar-powered house designed and built by students. The founder of a non-profit ministry will discuss sustainable qualities and strategies of a 27-acre master-planned community that provides affordable, sustainable housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas. The developer of a multifamily micro-unit project in East Austin will address affordability and sustainability in the urban core including transit-oriented development and changing trends in living.
