Hello Tiny House Crew!
What's the latest on the Tiny House Caucus and Shelter planning for an East
Bay Tiny House village/trailer park.
I'm looking to get a tiny house soon and want to see where others are at
and if we have any movement that I've missed out on over the summer.
I'd love to get a meeting together if others are interested. Looks like
the East Bay Tiny House meetup group has one scheduled for December 21st,
but another one sooner and less in conflict with holiday time would be

we had a meeting maybe 2 months ago RE building a
fleet of trailerable
tiny homes, probably overdue for another.
Here is a list set up for discussion of tiny homes, including
construction, social justice / housing, property search, all aspects of the
hasn't been that much traffic yet. Seems like we should start hashing out
some details and getting people organized a bit into whatever aspects of
the tiny home movement they are most interested in hacking on.
just made a pad with the minutes from the first and so far only meeting
that i know of - https://pad.riseup.net/p/TinyHomeCaucus
feel free to
just flesh out the minutes and add your thoughts wherever as it's just a
loose list of topics.
I should have some open bandwidth in the next few weeks - anyone for
meeting up to discuss? Last meeting was at a bar, would propose to do same

Hey all- I think this topic is super important given the gentrification
and housing crisis in our area, the increasing eviction of encampments such
as at the recent clearing of the camp at the southend of lake merritt
around the convention center, etc. I think there's also a lot of potential
to go beyond the sculptural practice of this guys work given organizing
networks and capacities of a place like sudo, not to mention the temperate
climate of the bay area. Could this conversation be worthy of some sort of
"Right to the City/Hack the City" working group? Would love to connecting
with others interested in developing this conversation..

Hey it's definitely real, I know
somebody who got one of the tiny houses.
Also on the "what if... occupy" tip I was once involved with a community
garden in the south bronx that kept getting bulldozed and rebuilt over and
over. Kicking off one of the re-occupations we built a little cassita in
pieces in another garden around the corner and then carried it all over and
screwed it together one night to announce the rebirth of the encampment.
Best moment was dude from the city the first morning talking into his cell
phone: "They have a house. I repeat a HOUSE. They're more organized than we
thought they were..."

I'm not calling shenanigans, but...I haven't seen any of these around, and
I spend a lot of time in WSO. Should I call that number and volunteer my
services? Assuming the article's legit and not just a puff piece, this
sounds like a project that sudo should be working with.
Even if it's BS, I recall someone- quite
possibly from sudo- mentioning a
bike trailer/Conestoga wagon type thing that
sounded pretty cool. I don't
remember whether they built it or were planning to build it...anyone?
