HDRC Friday Housing Forum focuses on tiny houses

Tiny houses in Georgia: What are the possibilities and limits?

Tiny houses are making a big impression. The lower cost and emphasis on an efficient use of space make tiny houses a compelling less-is-more, affordable housing option. Despite their popularity, the growth of tiny houses as a form of housing face many challenges. Next month the Housing and Demographic Research Center’s Friday Housing Forum will take on the topic of tiny houses in Georgia.  Bring your lunch and come hear different perspectives on the feasibility of tiny houses as a form of housing. The Friday Housing Forum is free and open to the public.

When: Friday, February 3rd from noon-1:15pm

Where: Tate Center, Room 473


  • Will Johnston, Founder and Executive Director of Tiny House Atlanta
  • Melissa Link, Commissioner, Athens-Clarke County
  • Ted Miltiades, Director, Office of Construction Codes & Research, Department of Community Affairs

The forum will include brief presentations from each speaker followed by audience questions and discussion.

RSVPs are encouraged at: https://fridayhousingforum.eventbrite.com
