St. Pete Tiny Home Festival

Two, it’s in March, so you couldn’t ask for better weather (except for the pollen making everyone a sniffling, red-eyed mess.) And three, it’s…

Parvus House and the Living Building Challenge

All Parvus House plans are designed to Living Building Challenge standards – a holistic approach to the most progressive thinking in architecture, engineering, interior design, construction, landscaping, and lifestyle. We adhere to the “Petals” or performance categories of Place Water, Energy, Health & Happiness, Materials, Equity, and Beauty.

The materials list you receive with your Parvus House drawings strictly follow the Living Building Challenge Materials Imperative, avoiding a variety of materials and chemicals on the Red List.

While we encourage you to purchase the specified materials, you may certainly make the decisions that are best for you.

About Us

We always recognized the tiny house movement as a positive development as it hints of a society that’s finally beginning to worry about humanity’s impact on our planet. And anywhere we can shrink our personal footprints leaves space something else—maybe something nicer or more beneficial for everyone … and everything.

But small—in and of itself—isn’t necessarily more efficient than a larger model with the same functions. After all, every building has a purpose, and a tiny home that’s little more than a detached hotel room with a cottage façade is probably less efficient than an extra bedroom and bath within a regular home. That’s why we went to work creating blueprints for Parvus House.
