Luther College hosts tiny house workshop April 25

After hosting a lecture by "The Big Tiny" author Dee Williams last September, the Luther College Center for Sustainable Communities will host a workshop for local tiny house owners and enthusiasts Saturday, April 25, in Room 206 of Valders Hall of Science on the Luther College campus.

            The workshop is open to the public with no charge for admission, but registration is requested. Those interested may register at:

            Jonathan Williams, nephew to Dee Williams, will open the workshop at 10 a.m. by introducing both the presenters and the tiny house movement.

            At 10:15 a.m., tiny house owners Grant and Anna Olson will begin a series of presentations, sharing their personal experience in building and living in a tiny home. Greg Johnson will then speak about Small House Society, the online resource he co-founded in 2002. Kim and Ryan Kasl, featured on the TV show "Tiny House Nation," will conclude the presentation section by discussing their experiences living in a 207-square-foot home with their two children.

            A break-out session will follow the presentations at 11:15 a.m. Presenters will be available for participants to ask questions, make connections and discuss future tiny house opportunities.
