James Madison University Talk Explores Tiny House Opportunities


Despite bone-chilling temperatures, more than 40 students and faculty members at James Madison University turned out for a Tiny House Community presentation on February 15 in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  Openworld Villages President/CEO Mark Frazier outlined trends favoring emergence of new communities, regulatory barriers now holding back their formation, and prospects for "crowdmoves" to localities that implement reforms.  Many students expressed interest in building tiny houses and in work-study and internship opportunities to prepare. The event was sponsored by Madison Liberty, a campus group promoting free market and decentralist approaches.  The presentation is available on Slideshare.
