Tiny Towns?

Alright, this may be the biggest and most exciting news I have seen in a long time regarding the Tiny Home Movement… Turns out there is an organization, sorry, an “Association” that is being put together to plan, design and build “Tiny Towns”.

The idea comes from Edward Peterson, whose knowledge and past experience in construction, alternative energy, marketing and business will come in handy putting together the pitch for the tiny home communities slated to be erected across Canada. As most of you know, tiny homes in urban centers are a difficult pitch!

The basic idea is to create close to 60,000 tiny home sites in 133 Tiny Towns across Canada. Of the sites, roughly 5,392 of them are planned to be Social Program houses. The Tiny Town Association plans to create about 1,591 full-time jobs within the towns.

Right now they are looking for corporate sponsors, volunteers, etc to build up the Association. I have a feeling this could be huge!

Check out their website for more information and to sign up to keep in the loop.

One thought on “Tiny Towns?”

  1. What a great idea. America should start a project like this. It could give jobs to people who need jobs n homes for the homeless who are trying to improve their lives; n something which they could afford. Kudos to Edward Peterson. Wish you all the best.
    Sincerely,
