You may have seen them on TV, or read about them, but they’re taking the housing world by storm. They’re called “tiny houses”, and many people are interested in them as primary residences.
Tiny houses tend to be very small, built on-site or delivered intact quite inexpensively, are low-cost and low-maintenance, and have a much lower impact on the environment. Some see them as perfect inexpensive first homes, while others see them as great retirement homes for low-cost living, or simply low-footprint living in a world short on resources.
Soon you can get a first hand look—inside and out—at a tiny house right at our store. We’ll also have a talk about tiny houses, followed by a question-and-answer session, with Bill Rockhill, President of Bear Creek Tiny Houses in Woodgate, NY. Bill has been building tiny houses for more than 20 years.
Our event, “Bear Creek Tiny Houses, featuring Integrity Windows”, will be at our New Hartford location at 8448 Seneca Turnpike on Wednesday, August 17th, from 1pm-6pm. The tiny house will be on site and open for viewing starting at 1pm, followed by a one-hour talk (including Q&A), beginning at 5pm. In addition to the day-long activities, a film crew will be capturing the events of the day for the TV docu-series “Bear Creek Tiny Houses: Big Stories”. The day’s events are free and open to the public.
Recently, tiny houses have become a center point of popular culture. Many people are considering buying or building tiny houses, or want to know more about them. You’ll find few people who know more about tiny houses than Bill Rockhill. For more than 20 years, he and his family have been building durable tiny houses for a range of customers across the country and Canada.
Bear Creek, which specializes in tiny houses on wheels (THOW), has been featured on HGTV and the Travel Channel, as well as television programs like Tiny House Hunters and Extreme RV.
Bill has been sharing his knowledge, experience, and stories with audiences across the country on television, and he has agreed to spend time in person with JAY-K Lumber customers! Whether you’re an experienced professional or someone who just wants to find out more about tiny houses and see one up close, you’ll enjoy Bill’s informative personal stories and interactive question and answer session.
