After a winter in hibernation, Boneyard Studios is back with more spring, summer, and fall tiny house events! Full calendar coming soon, but in the meantime—the first 2016 tour of the Matchbox will be on Sunday, April 10 from 11AM to 1PM. Come by to ask questions about simple living and tiny house design, walk through DC’s only fully off-grid and self-sustaining tiny home, and check out the awesome urban farm and garden center managed by our great friends at Old City Farm & Guild.

As usual, we’ll do a big Q&A right at 11—so please arrive on time for that!—followed by a leisurely procession through the Matchbox (alas, the small house can’t exactly fit our enormous crowds all at once). Photography welcome, kids welcome, dogs welcome, everyone welcome (though please let us know if we can help arrange any special accommodations). We’re at 925 Rhode Island Ave NW, just a few minutes’ walk from the Shaw Metro (yellow/green) and tons of bus stops and CaBi stations. There’s ample room for bikes, and if you have to drive, street parking is available in the area.

Oh, one last thing: Boneyard Studios is a little non-profit that organizes big events abot tiny houses throughout the District. These tours cost a bit to put on (liability insurance, rental space, incidental repairs, etc.), so we’re asking for a small admittance donation if you can swing it (though you’ll always be welcome if you can’t). Either way, grab a spot here (or down below), and share with your Facebook buddies here. See you in April!

  1. I’m excited by the idea of a small house in DC, but it seems that the zoning laws are in a grey area. Any idea if this thing is going to take off?

    Thanks.

  4. No word from anyone since March. What is the status? What about the “summer” and “fall” events?
