Small House Society – News 201107 | 31 July 2011 | Sunday
I know that time is precious for everyone, so I’ll try to keep this update short. The approximate reading time is about 5 minutes. Toward the bottom, there’s some repetition of announcements from last month for those who’ve just joined the list.
In The News. We’re entering our 10th year, and I know it seems like a long haul for those of you who’ve been with us from the beginning, but there’s much more to come. Just when we thought that everyone had heard our message, we get yet another journalist or reporter contacting us to tell the story again, to thousands more people. Here are some of the recent reports that have featured the Small House Society:
- The New Yorker – “Let’s Get Small – The Rise of the Tiny-House Movement”
- AARP Video Interview with Jay Shafer
- AARP Radio Interview about the Small House Movement
- RadioColoradoCollege.org – Tiny Homes Take Hold
Facebook Page. The Small House Society Facebook Page currently has 1,405 members (up from 1,315 last month). If you’ve not yet done so, please visit the Small House Society Facebook Page and click Like to connect with us there. I’ve been really impressed with how quickly people have joined our Facebook presence. In a few months we’ve seen as much growth as 9 years on Yahoo Groups.
Yahoo Group. The Small House Society Yahoo Group continues to be quite active after about 9 years. For those who prefer a venue other than Facebook, you might want to consider it as a way to connect with other small living people.
Updated Directory of Designers and Builders. One of the most frequent requests we get is from people seeking small home designers and builders. In January I finished updating our directory of small home designers and builders to include the city and state to make it easier for journalists and potential customers to find local small home contacts.
Thanks. I want to thank the global team of volunteers and contributors “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of the Small House Society. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that the Small House Society can serve you better.
