What is Tiny House Expo 2021?

DesignClass offers a Tiny House Design class and other creative virtual design classes to creators across the world.

DesignClass decided to create the Tiny House Expo virtual event as an opportunity to bring together tiny house designers, builders, educators, and enthusiasts who want to support each other, as well as educate and learn everything about “going tiny”.

We will be showcasing thought leaders and designers' work as well as offer opportunities to interact, share your story, and mingle with the tiny house community during these uncertain times.

Come for connection, networking, and community.

This Expo will bring people from all walks of the tiny house life.
