Presentation: Land leasing, tenant owned tiny homes in Ontario

Learn about the possibilities of renting land for a tiny home, the legalities of land leasing, and which Ontario municipalities welcome this arrangement.

Presentation: Small Space Design

Tiny homes are not just smaller traditional homes – and cannot be designed that way. Every aspect of living must be considered differently when mapping out a tiny home floor plan. After living tiny herself and working with many builders across the country, Bianca Metz shares her lessons learned on small space design.
