I am so sorry to miss both the meeting at Mitch and Christina's AMAZING tiny home----I have been hearing a lot about it from Jeffery and Joe---and to miss tonight's gathering at the Bean Cycle. My mom is here and we have been running around together.  But I will be back on track from here on out.  Did we set a date and location for our next meeting??  Take care all, Tanja

I'm so sorry to have missed the time... I was looking a your invitation at about 3:00 PM and couldn't get mobilized earlier.  I hope that we will have another opportunity in the near future.  --  Jim Bragonier

Good morning, everyone!  Randy and Jeffery and Joe Becker and I met yesterday about the continuing and wonderful possibility of a Tiny House Village at Bonnie Farm.  Randy is getting a LOT of positive support with the City of Fort Collins Planners for a project like this.  Good work, Randy!

I encourage all of us who are interested in such a community to familiarize ourselves with the books and website of Diana Leafe Christian.  Her book, Creating a Life Together, is essential reading as far as I am concerned.  It goes over many of the issues, and possible pitfalls, in trying to design a thriving intentional community.  I am ordering several copies of the book, and I am happy to loan out 1-2 copies.  She also has a website, <dianaleafechristian.org> that has TONS of valuable information.

Let's keep this lively discussion going, take care, Tanja

Hello Tiny House folks - I've added some meeting notes from last night's meetings to three pages on our group site (two are new).

There is now a RESOURCE page that everyone is welcome to contribute to.  If you want to list a resource, send it to me direct at: Janice contact and I will add it.  

Also new is the TINY HOUSE VILLAGE AT BONNIE FARM PROJECT, which is being spearheaded by Randy, Tanja, Jeffrey, and occasional others.  Anyone is welcome to join the meetings if they are interested OR check this NEW page for updates on the progress of the project.

Last night we decided to keep meeting at 7:00 each Monday night at the Bean Cycle for now.  Most of us felt it important to support the continuity of the meeting place, even though the venue can get a bit noisy at times.

If you have questions or need contact info, send it to the contact info above.

Thanks,

Janice
