The Tiny House is a concept that has been making a lot of waves this year. Pressure on space for building and consideration for our environment means that in the future, houses will almost certainly have to have a smaller footprint, with populations living in smaller homes but sharing communal buildings making it more affordable.
Timber Expo has challenged Carwyn Lloyd Jones to build a Tiny House with a Timber Frame for this year's event following on from his success on Channel 4's Amazing Spaces in May this year.
Carwyn is a carpenter and a joiner by trade, and teaches courses on building with natural materials at the Centre for Alternative Technology. he will be running workshops at Timber Expo from the Tiny House, which will be built using natural materials such as Hempcrete and Cob walling.
