I will be talking about vintage campers as tiny houses, how to find quality used building materials, using green + eco-friendly building materials, and how to save money in your tiny house by having an entirely DC photovoltaic solar power system.

From the KOA Press Release:

“KOA Hosting Sustainable Living Weekend
The Brattleboro North KOA Campground, 1238 US Route 5 in East Dummerston, Vermont, will be hosting a Vintage Camper and Tiny House Rally Friday, July 20 to Sunday, July 22.
The event will feature Mariah Coz, a student of sustainable design and architecture, who also restores vintage campers. Her latest project is the COMET (Cost-Effective Off Grid Mobile Eco Trailer).
The COMET is an exercise in sustainability and small space living. Coz is turning a 1960s-era Avalon trailer into the COMET, featuring full-time healthly living space and a mobile classroom that is completely self sufficient, with no environmental impact.
All materials used in the COMET will be sustainably produced or sourced from repurposed materials. Coz said the COMET is taking a holistic approach to house design, and will be healthy for both the environment and the COMET’s inhabitants.
As part of this special weekend, The Brattleboro KOA is offering a special rate of 50 percent off a second night’s stay to those who bring vintage campers, classic cars or tiny mobile houses. Local enthusiasts of sustainability are invited to attend any daytime sessions at no charge. Please call 802-254-5908 in advance for a visitor’s pass.
For more information on Coz and the COMET project, go to www.cometcamper.wordpress.com. To make reservations for this special event, go to www.brattleborokoa.com.”

What is sure to be another FABULOUS weekend of tiny house building, talking, hands on learning and laughing. I’ll be there with a (mostly) completed COMET – by November we’ll have Solar power, the bumper garden, and all of the details and fixings of a really lived-in tiny house (Tiny space tricks and tips galore!). See the new composting toilet and learn about tiny, off-grid living. Lots of great guests too – to be announced officially soon. These workshops are always super fun and an invaluable experience. Go to relaxshacks.com to learn more, email Deek if you’re interested.
