Tiny House Events and Workshops


The Silver Bullet Tiny House is now in a permanent hosting location in Northern Massachusetts as of 2017. If you would like to schedule a consultation, see services page.

PAST Events:

May 2022: First legislators/BBRS leaders tour the Silver Bullet Tiny House:

In order for Massachusetts to legalize movable tiny homes, I took the risk of inviting legislators and BBRS officials to view a properly connected and placed tiny house on an 8 acre host property north of Boston. The intent was to see how tiny houses are placed and connected and appear in a real neighborhood as opposed to viewing a model at a tiny home builders warehouse/lot.

April26-27/2022: Private Screening of the Box Truck Film Earth Day Event at Governors Academy

As producer and cast member of this amazing film about the 6 R’s and the Box Truck Build, I was finally able to facilitate this event with my daughter, Belle, who teaches art at this institution. The filmmakers, my two great ReUse/ReCycle tiny house friends, Alex Eaves and Derek Diedricksen, after the films screening,spent the day in classrooms and at the Box Truck facilitating 6R discussions and relaying their story with the academy’s teachers and students.

Comments from former attendees:
“If your longing to live the tiny life I highly recommend attending Vera’s workshop as a first step. Not only will you get to see, touch, and feel an actual tiny house but Vera will share with you her story, her experiences, and knowledge gained by extensive research and trial and error. I left her workshop with a bigger appreciation for the Tiny house way of life and for the movement as a whole. I now have a better understanding of the social, economic, environmental, and cultural effects this intentional way of living supports and impacts.
So inspired to start my THOW journey real soon! ” Sophie T.
“I also really enjoyed all the sustainability information that you shared with us. We are definitely starting to see a trend in people who we talk to: those who are environmentally conscious, and those who are financially conscious. I love that your nonprofit strives to show people that they can have both.” Megan M.
“I definitely learned a lot about how tiny houses are constructed, and providing us with some of the building materials you used was incredibly useful. The game we played at the end of the tour also really helped put everything into perspective – it was definitely a great learning process when we wrote down the top 5 things we should consider before building a tiny house.” Jay W.
“I greatly appreciate your willingness to open up your home and heart to us and share with us your values as well as your challenges.” Mika IW.

  1. Thank you Vera for this inspiration!! I am almost one year into collecting all my windows, doors, loft boards , inside wall boards, outside old redwood fence boards for siding, all reclaimed, and 2 months having my trailer and now ready to put the deck on over the sheep’s wool insulation. (It took awhile to get the sheet meatla all attached under the trailer) So good to hear that you built this mostly yourself, and the positive attitude you have for it all. And so great to share it and inspire others to live simply on the earth!! I am working with a group of people to get a tiny house village happening in the city of Richmond California to have affordable housing in a place where people have to move away as the rents and mortgages climb up. Yeah for this movement!!!
