We enjoyed an inspiring (although rainy) couple days at the Decatur Tiny House Festival – touring tiny homes and chatting with other designers, manufacturers, and enthusiasts.
Perhaps the most engaging part of the event was the Tiny Talks featuring an impressive collection of speakers – all experts in tiny houses, sustainable living, urban planning and the tiny home lifestyle.
