About the Event

The Tiny Homes group returns ...Lockdown's proved to be a big challenge during the last 12 months with our sell-out Tiny Homes Show at the Cheese & Grain being cancelled a year ago and the same fate putting things on ice again this March. Rather than sitting around and wondering what to do we have carried on working and decided to go with an online Tiny Homes event this month and get things moving again. The Frome Tiny Homes Webinar is an online public event discussing this increasingly popular housing concept. Fair Housing for Frome has been working towards developing a Tiny Homes Community for some time and has expanded the project during the lockdown period with a new project group led by Polly Lamb and Rory Supka. The group has been putting together a vision for how Tiny Homes could help alleviate the affordable housing shortage in the area. The Tiny Homes concept also promotes financial prudence, environmental sustainability and a shift away from consumer-driven mindsets into a more flexible way of living. Tiny Homes are of increasing interest, particularly to young people, because they are more affordable than a conventional home, allow for more creativity and flexibility, and offer a range of possibilities for living in community. They are also a natural fit with co-housing and self-build projects.

Tiny Homes have a lower carbon footprint and enable their owners to live more simply and in closer contact with nature. However, there are many practical hurdles to overcome, including getting access to land, securing planning permission, and meeting building regulations, these issues will no doubt be discussed during the online session.

The Webinar on the 20th March is open to everyone who might be interested in building, buying or renting an affordable eco-friendly Tiny Home. Local people with an interest in community-led housing or just people who want to explore a less cluttered way of life will also benefit from joining the event. Speakers include project workers Polly Lamb and Rory Supka, Jackson Moulding from SNUG Homes in Bristol and James Shorten, Planner and Founder of Regenerative Settlement. Local Tiny Home owner Rebecca Brewin will also be talking about her progress in finishing her own Tiny Home here in Frome.
