When we set out on our Sunday walk down the BeltLine today, we didn’t realize that the Big Huge Tiny House event was happening at Ponce City Market, right in our line of travel! This is the second annual Big Huge Tiny House event, and four tiny houses were featured for guests to explore. The tiny houses included were from Shelter Supply, Tiny House Atlanta, Free Range Tiny Homes, and MicroLife Institute. I loved that the homes were decorated with products from Ponce City Market retailers, such as Williams-Sonoma, West Elm, Sugarboo & Co., Rejuvenation, and Citizen Supply!
The sustainable village was also a wonderful touch, and I enjoyed reading more about recycling and sustainable living initiatives in the Atlanta area. We stopped by booths for Resilient Atlanta, EarthShare Georgia, Global Growers, Hannah Solar, the US Green Building Council, and the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials, to name a few! I saw that there were two free speaker sessions on sustainable living at General Assembly, as well, but we unfortunately missed out on those.
Tiny House Atlanta, a Georgia nonprofit, is dedicated to building sustainable ‘micro-hood’ communities while educating the community about the positive impacts of micro living. They hold regular meetings, and have an upcoming Tiny House Festival in Decatur from September 29 – October 1! Be sure to stop by and check out their website for more info. I was super impressed with how efficient (and totally adorable) all of the tiny houses were!
We also had the chance to swing by the Virginia Ave corridor of the BeltLine to check out the amazing new koi artwork by Rising Red Lotus. Isn’t it incredible? I’ve been watching it progress on the Atlanta BeltLine Instagram, so it was fantastic to see it in person.
Have a great week, everyone!
