Tiny Homes – Redefining the simple life

Most of us hate feeling cramped. We hate being stuck on a crowded plane, stuck in congested traffic, and wading through packed concert halls. We like to be able to stretch out, get casual, and relax. But all that space comes at a price.

The recent recession delivered a sobering gut-check to life as usual. Easy money has caused housing prices to spiral out of control, and all of the things we thought were so important, suddenly became less so.

At the heart of the Tiny Home Movement are a new breed of small houses that are comfortable, efficient, technologically advanced, often portable, and very often, mortgage free. They represent freedom, freedom from debt, freedom from conspicuous consumption, and freedom to live a life of passion.

Join us at Rod Stambaugh, founder of Sprouts Tiny Homes ( in Lafayette, helps us understand why the tiny home movement is likely to be far more than a tiny blip on the radar screen of change.

NOTE: People attending will be able to tour one of the new models from Sprout Tiny Homes.
