Are you thinking about downsizing from your large home? Or perhaps you are a young person wondering if you can ever afford a home of your own? The answer may be in building a tiny house. The next film in the Green Film Series Tiny: A Story About Living Small is all about living in less space and how to get there. The film will be shown at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse at 7:30 pm on Monday, October 28. There will be a second showing at the Iris Griffith Centre at Ruby Lake on Saturday, November 2 at 2 pm.
This film follows one couples attempt to build a “tiny house” with no building experience and raises questions about sustainability, good design and the true meaning of a smaller footprint. Could you live in 133 sq. feet?
Local tiny homeowners and builders will participate in a discussion on living this lifestyle following the film. Scheduled to participate are Scott Avery of Huckeberry Vardo Designs in Roberts Creek, a designer and builder of pre-fabricated small buildings and Craig and Elizabeth Peterson of Sechelt, homeowners who are currently building a small home on a trailer. The audience will be able to ask questions and find out more about building a small house here on the coast.
