Sponsored and underwritten by the sustainability non-profit, terrabluteams.org, the first Silver Bullet Tiny House Social/Retreat empowered attendees with skills and information about choices required to approach a more sustainable tiny life.

This tiny house social/retreat differs from other workshops by facilitating and nurturing the whole sustainable tiny life, not just the construction build. With hands-on demonstrations of resource repurposing, barter strategies, tiny life transitioning skills, composting, organic local food, attendees experience skills needed  to achieve resiliency in a world being depleted of its resources.

Particpants honed their new construction skills building a simple worktable needed for their future tiny house builds, installing 2nd and 3rd stage projects such as window installation, rain screen application, vented roofing and insulation, and how to turn trash into treasure. Attendees made earrings of recycled plastic in their own custom design. Sunday morning after a leisurely breakfast, folks were guided into yogic meditation by Kelsey Max Klibansky.

The next weekend retreat, July 19-20, will include sustainable composting, several 2nd-3rd stage tiny house construction projects, with local organic dinners included, fire pit socials, barter skills, trash to treasure projects, speakers, and other chapters on how to apply the sustainable/resiliency filter to your life’s design choices.

“Aaahhh, so that’s what a rain screen looks like”.

And as she says that, other participants work overtime with repurposing ideas for the left overs into a slew of creative fashion statements so they don’t end up in a land fill.
