The most trusted resource for every home and garden spotlights small space living with Tiny Home Village, February 21-25, 2018at BC Place Stadium
The 47th annual BC Home + Garden Show returns to BC Place Stadium from Feb. 21-25 and is the most trusted resource for every home improvement project, inside and out. This year will be no different, with over 425 exhibitors and features set to appear at the show, including the unveiling of the Tiny Home Village presented by Mint Tiny House Company, a collection of small (but mighty!), livable, and modern homes designed to revolutionize the concept of city and suburban living alike.
The tiny homes are built using similar specifications as a traditional home, except they are on wheels, and much smaller! By using 2×4 construction, or a metal frame, they are able to create that cozy feeling on a mobile base, giving customers, both urbanites and nomads, endless options to create their dream home. Complete with high-end appliances and fully customizable layouts, the tiny home trend has taken off in major hotspots like Vancouver for its multitude of options. Whether you want to get off the grid but bring all the comforts of home with you, or want to make city-living more affordable, tiny homes were born out of necessity and aren’t going anywhere as real estate prices continue to climb.
“Each year, we strive to be at the forefront of innovation and trends in the home and garden market and this year is no different,” said Tyson Kidd, show manager for Marketplace Events, producers of the BC Home + Garden Show. “We’re thrilled to bring the tiny home trend to the BC Home + Garden Show for the first time to give attendees a chance to explore this movement up close.”
Founded in South Delta in 2014 by husband and wife team, Brian & Shannon Persse, Mint Tiny House Company gives customers the chance to customize every inch of their tiny home or select from a variety of existing models. The three tiny homes that make up the Tiny Home Village were designed with different lifestyles in mind to show off how versatile the homes are: one for a retired couple, one for a family, and another for a single person. With each only between 150 to 280 square feet of space, attendees will be able to explore each small sanctuary and how they can be developed for any unique needs.
“We are so excited to be bringing our tiny homes to Vancouver homeowners at this year’s BC Home + Garden Show,” said Shannon Persse, co-founder of Mint Tiny House Company. “The Tiny Home Village will give people a chance to see what is possible in such a small space and we think they’ll be impressed! It’s hard to imagine that a home this small could come with all the luxuries and amenities you need to live comfortably, but each of our homes is fully outfitted with the top appliances, high-quality finishes, and space-saving methods. You may just take home some inspiration on how to make the most of your existing space after visiting!”
The BC Home + Garden Show runs from Wednesday, Feb. 21 to Sunday, Feb. 25 at BC Place Stadium. For more information, or to buy tickets online and save $3 courtesy of RenovationFind.com, visit http://bchomeandgardenshow.com/.
