Help to build your Tiny House (near Lawrence)

Local businessman looking for younger 'partners' who are community members want to have a simple, less demanding lifestyle. I have a location where we can store materials, learn together, experiment, and finally help each other build our Tiny Dream Home.

Four Components to a successful effort.

A. Zoning and site layout/design
1. Site selection
2. Zoning and variance process
3. Water and sewage disposal
4. Common area: Living space, laundry, garden, parking

B. Cooperative agreements
1. Corporate structure
2. Membership levels: builders, associates, next phase volunteers
3. Time line and commitments
4. Shared resources: tools, tires
5. $ to buy in vs invest time in Phoenix Urban Farm
6. Time Banking. See TimeBankIndy.org

C. Best Practices
1. Trailer design
2. Floor Plan
3. Material acquisition
a. Structural components,--walls roof, doors, windows
b. Furnishings-- Appliances, plumbing, storage fixtures
4. Tools and Construction process/systems

D. More and Less--Miscellaneous
1. Financing options
2. Downsizing- Yard sales, member and community support
3. Publicity, networking,
4. Video documentary
