Perhaps you already saw B.A. Norrgard’s adorable 112-square-foot house on wheels at the Hollywood Heights Newellian Easter Parade this year? Or maybe you saw it in this BuzzFeed video?

Well, if you haven’t yet seen inside the super cute but VERY COZY little home documented on Norrgard’s blog, you’ll have another chance to see it during Earth Day Texas. Norrgard will open the teacup cottage to visitors and talk about what she call’s “lifestyle repackaging” but is also known as “extreme downsizing” during the free April 24-26 event at Dallas’ art deco gem, Fair Park. She’ll also talk about the prospect of tiny house communities in Dallas, which is an idea we’re absolutely smitten with.

    I think Southside would be ideal for a tiny home community. There are already vacant lots with utilities in place; I would think it would be easy to allow two or three homes on each lot. Just a thought…
