Builder to Discuss an Alternative in Housing
Prince George, B.C. – Tiny homes are fast becoming a consideration of people living in urban settings in our major cities and, given the harsh reality of economics in today’s world and into the future, are quickly becoming a serious option in smaller communities as well.
How do they stack up in a city such as Prince George which still gets a solid four months of winter weather? Well, that question and many others will be looked at today at the REAPS annual general meeting at the Bob Harkins Branch of the Prince George Public Library.
First off just to let you know, everyone is welcome to attend the AGM which runs from 1 pm to about 3:30 pm. They’ll have a short year in review and a governance report and once that is done a session entitled “Building Tiny Homes Suitable for Snowy Climates” will be held featuring Pamela Wright.
She is the owner of Confluence Tiny Homes of Prince George which builds tiny homes under 400 square feet, either on a foundation or on wheels. Right now she has two homes on wheels under construction and herself lives part-time in a tiny home on foundation with plans to live in one full-time in a couple of years.
Wright will be leading a broad discussion about these homes: how constructing strong, warm and light buildings are key, trade-offs, opportunities and challenges one might face when building or buying a tiny home and will talk about her first-hand experiences with building tiny.
