What is Tiny House Engage?

Interest in tiny houses has exploded in recent years. Between the reality TV shows, fairs, workshops, and websites, there is so much information available. There are even dozens of free Facebook groups dedicated to tiny house living… but with over 30,000 members, they are just a deluge of questions, posts, and GoFundMe requests.

When there are so many important decisions to make when building your tiny house, you need individual advice by trusted experts. An intimate community dedicated to supporting people like you through the building and living process.

Add to it that you're busy. How do you find the right answers for you?


Tiny House Engage is a dedicated community for people who are taking action to plan, design, and build their tiny houses, not just talking about it. 

“I love the community that makes up Tiny House Engage. I haven't taken advantage of all of the resources… YET! I'm in the planning phase but I am also planning on starting to begin building the end of this month! I cannot wait ☺. I will most definitely be ustilizing these resources and all of you in the community as I get busier with the tiny house!

New recordings are added each week, covering topics ranging from DIY plumbing to how to run a successful tiny house AirBnb.

Best of all, you can help guide topics for upcoming video trainings. If there's something you're struggling with, just ask! Many of our most popular video trainings started as a question from a member.

About Me

After months of research, I built my own tiny house on wheels starting in June of 2012.

I moved in in 2013 and spent 10 months writing and researching my popular and comprehensive resource, Tiny House Decisions. 

I publish monthly tiny house how-to articles, host the weekly Tiny House Lifestyle Podcast, and write a weekly email newsletter to thousands of tiny house fans. 

As my community has grown, I have missed the opportunity to work with and answer questions for individual tiny house enthusiasts. I want to help you realize your tiny house dreams…

…And that's exactly why I've started Tiny House Engage.
