Central Coast Tiny Home Expo gets big turnout in San Luis Obispo

If you're looking to downsize, tiny homes might suit you.

Thousands of people got an inside look of smaller living spaces at the Tiny Footprint: Central Coast Tiny House & Net Zero Expo held over the weekend at the Madonna Meadows.

SmartShare Housing Solutions partnered with Ecologistics and the SLO Climate Coalition to showcase a number of tiny houses as part of the trend toward a more sustainable lifestyle.

The City of San Luis Obispo was one of more than 30 sponsors of the event.

San Luis Obispo is one of two California cities that allows homeowners to have tiny homes in their backyards.

Tiny house builders, city planners, environmentalists and other educational speakers helped enthusiasts turn their big dream into a tiny home reality.

People could learn more about permits, design and construction, yardshare agreements and utility hookups.

Featured builders include Tiny Mountain Houses, Elevation Tiny Homes, Humble Handcraft Tiny Homes, Central Coast Tiny House and more.

This zero-waste, low-carbon event encouraged visitors to bike, walk or carpool and bring their own beverage container and dining kit to the event.
