Tiny House Village Scenes from The Auburn Fall Home Show

We’re just back from a quick visit to The Auburn Fall Home Show, in Auburn, California – where they’ve setup a tiny house village that showcases a number of tiny houses. If you’re in northern California this weekend you might want to take the drive up I-80 and have a look.

The organizers will be giving away one of the tiny homes on wheels on display too. The first photo is of the giveaway house. You must be present to enter, learn more on giveaway sponsor’s website.

Tiny House at Quixote Village – A Cure for Homelessness

Quixote Village, as it is now called, practices self-governance, with elected leadership and membership rules. While a nonprofit board called Panza funds and guides the project, needing help is not the same thing as being helpless. As Mr. Johnson likes to say, “I’m homeless, not stupid.”” – NYTimes.com
