The Big Tiny out April 22nd!

Why Build Tiny?



Tiny houses offer a way to make your living space serve your life, instead of the other way around. It’s not about having less, it’s about having more - more money and time to devote to the things that are really important to you.

PAD helps people just like you learn to design and build their own tiny houses so they can lead a life that's uniquely their own.

Dee Williams’ TEDx Talk

“What purchase, what new item, would you want to hold in your arms as you die? What favorite room in your house could accommodate that last breath? Can you imagine how our consumer patterns would change, and how small our houses would shrink, if we asked those questions a little more often?”
