Dee-Book-Mixer

The Big Tiny Reading and Tiny House Mixer: May

Friday, May 2, 2014
7:30 pm
Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon

This special event is one part Tiny House Mixer, and one part Portland stop for The Big Tiny book tour. Dee will read from her new memoir and introduce some of Portland’s other tiny house experts to the group. There will be time for mixing and mingling with others, as well as meeting Dee and getting a copy of the book.

This special mixer/reading hybrid is a great way to meet other people who are all along the spectrum of being interested in tiny houses, from brand new to the idea to pillars of the Portland tiny house community. We hope you join us to see Dee tell her story on her turf, in her own voice, and meet some like-minded people and professionals who can help you find the path that’s right for you.

Dee Williams comes to California, at long last! This special classroom-style workshop introduces what a tiny house can be, what it might look like, and where it can go.

The Top 5 Tiny House Head Scratchers we will address:

  • How to properly secure the house to the trailer.
  • What are the options for water, sewer, gas and electric?
  • How to button things up and prevent moisture problems.
