Tiny Homes at NW SolarFest

Monday, July 10, 2017

Filmmakers Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons
have traveled 25,000 miles with their tiny house

Curious about the tiny house craze? Do you think you could live in one?

You have the opportunity to tour several tiny homes, speak to a builder and with tiny home dwellers.

Tiny House Expedition will be stopping at NW SolarFest as part of an extraordinary journey across the U.S. in a tiny house.

NW SolarFest, Saturday, July 22, 10am - 5pm, Shoreline Community College, 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline 98133, free.

Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons, a filmmaker duo, are inspiring others to redefine home and rethink housing as means to provide more sustainable options, more meaningful lifestyles and more connected communities.

They are the creators of Tiny House Expedition and are on a journey with a purpose across North America with their DIY tiny home. To date, they have traveled over 25,000 miles, and counting!

They will answer your questions about tiny living, while giving tours of their charming home on wheels.

At 3pm join Alexis and Christian in the theater for a screening of their documentary film Living Tiny Legally.

Living Tiny Legally is an educational documentary series that explores the potential benefits tiny housing can bring to a community, the legal obstacles and how these are being overcome in a growing number of cities and in model building codes.

Seattle Tiny Homes, a local tiny house builder, will have their Alki model on display.

Seattle Tiny Homes specializes in tiny structures on wheels. They believe smaller abodes create serenity and simplicity, and are better for the environment.

You can use a tiny structure as a home, a mother-in-law apartment, a retirement cottage, an extra bedroom for a college student, a home office, or a studio. Your home is personalized and built to the highest standards of quality. All their completed structures are licensed as RV travel trailers.

Susan Bernado and Courtenay Fletcher, author and illustrator of The Big Adventures of Tiny House, will be doing readings of their children’s book throughout the day.

The irresistible rhymes and delightfully detailed illustrations in this new classic from the creators of Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs are sure to enchant children – and the book’s gentle messages about sustainable living and working together will delight parents and teachers as well.

The Big Adventures of Tiny House is a story of adventure and community, and most importantly a fresh take on the meaning of home. Susan and Courtenay beautifully capture the spirit of the tiny house movement— a pioneering lifestyle centered around meaningful experiences and friendships, and adorably charming to boot.

Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) will be on hand to talk about their tiny house villages for the homeless and Susan and Courtenay will be donating 25% of their book sales to this local nonprofit.

Readings at 11:30 in the KIDZone, 12:30pm and 2:30pm in the theater.
