Scheduled for August 23 to 26 in the Texas Hill Country, the National Tiny House and Simple Living Jamboree will be the “it” place in Austin for all who are looking to live a smaller lifestyle. Although everything is generally touted to be big in Texas, the tiny house movement has taken on a larger-than-life quality of its own! The event will be open to the public August 24 through 26, with the first day (August 23) being reserved for industry functions.

According to the event website, the “Tiny House & Simple Living Jamboree is the destination for enthusiasts, lifestyle advocates, industry professionals and those interested in the simple lifestyle – delivering and celebrating the best that simple living has to offer: mindful practices, eco-friendly products and services, and of course, one-of-a-kind tiny houses and tiny living structures.”

There are a number of companies throughout Texas that presently specialize in tiny home construction, many of which have been featured on TexasHillCountry.com pages. Homes in the Texas Hill Country vary in size, and since there’s no “official” description for the square footage of a tiny home, they can come in many makes, shapes, and sizes. “Bestie Row,” as it’s referred to, is a wonderful example of downsizing by three Texas families living along the Llano River, who have been long-time friends, living professional lifestyles. The concept is not something that’s new to the state or the region, and it’s one that seems to have, in fact, blossomed.
