The Colorado Tiny House Festival will take place at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado from July 28 to July 30, the event organizers announced today. The festival will feature up to 30 tiny homes, including homes on wheels, yurts, container homes and other alternative living housing. Up to 20 vendors will also be present, showcasing products and solutions dedicated to the tiny house movement, sustainability, green energy and conservation. —
"If you’re curious about tiny homes, this festival will be very informative and fun for you," said a spokesperson for the festival. "Even if you don’t see yourself living in a tiny home, this event can inspire you to think about living a greener lifestyle."
Tiny homes are gaining in popularity as more people seek ways to reduce their impact on the environment while living more economically. A home is considered "tiny" if it has less than 400 square feet of living space. In contrast to average American homes, which have grown larger over time despite shrinking family sizes, tiny homes deliberately push the edge of low-space living. Financial advantages of tiny homes include low construction and land costs, low utilities and upkeep.
There are a variety of tiny home types. These include homes that can fit on a trailer and be moved by car. Some tiny homes are as small as 80 square feet, which is enough space for a single person. A Yurt is a round, tent like dwelling inspired by an ancient design used by nomadic tribes in Mongolia, Siberia and Turkey. Shipping containers also form the basis for tiny homes. They are sturdy and already formed into a house-like shape.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Wild Animal Sanctuary.
The Festival will be located at:
