Living in a Tiny House

Living in a Tiny House

In this workshop, you’ll learn everything about Tiny Living, about living in a Mill Home Tiny Loft, and about the steps you need to take to realise this.

We will look at the Tiny House Movement, a movement that has come over from the United States and that has resulted in a trend in the Netherlands to live smaller. People often want to live smaller in order to create more space for other things that are important in their lives. But also because of the desire to contribute to a sustainable world, to live energy-neutral and above all, to make living affordable. This makes Tiny Living a lifestyle that occurs in all age groups, but especially amongst the so-called millennials, people between the ages of 20 and 35.

During the workshop, in an interactive discussion, we will tell you about the Mill Home Tiny Loft, a 30m2 Tiny House that can also be visited during Dear Future,. The Tiny Loft is sustainable, energy neutral, flexible and affordable. The first Tiny Lofts have already been realised and are being lived in by their satisfied inhabitants. We will show you pictures and talk about the experiences of the inhabitants, with one of the inhabitants being present to tell you about his own experiences first-hand. Of course, we will also look at how the homes are realised, the financing, the monthly costs and other general requirements.

We would also like to know what the (living) wishes of visitors to the workshops are. Would you like to live in such a Tiny House? Under what conditions? Where should the house be? Do you want to design and build it yourself, or do you want to be helped along with a shell, or even a ready-made Tiny House? Do you want to go “off grid” or be connected to the mains? What other wishes do you have, for example about forming a group of residents with similar wishes?

Finally, we look at the possibilities to realise a Tiny House within your local council. What are the regulations? What steps need to be taken? How can you do this alone, or with a group? What other wishes do you have, for example about joining a so-called Collective Private Commission? This, and more, will be addressed during the workshop.

Of course, we recommend a visit to the Mill Home Tiny Loft, but if the weather is nice, we’ll maybe organise the workshop outside, at the Tiny Loft.
