New! Tiny House Expo at the Fresno Fall Home Improvement Show!
With the success of the Tiny House Village at the March Fresno Home & Garden Show with thousands of attendees viewing the Tiny Houses, we have expanded to a Tiny House Expo, complete with seminar series at The Fresno Fall Home Improvement Show, November 2,3,4, 2018 at the Fresno Fairgrounds. Building #4 has been added to house the Tiny Houses and Seminar Series. This venue is perfect as the freight door is tall enough 13'9" to allow Tiny Houses indoors. There is also an outdoor area in front of Building #4 that will feature a variety of Tiny Living options, as well as the Tiny Houses that will be demonstrating solar.
Testimonials from two Tiny Home Builders & Exhibitors~
”I attended the 32nd annual Fresno Home and Garden Show in March where I was a vendor of their Tiny House Village. Laurie from Fresno Shows was fantastic to work with. The event was very well attended with thousands of visitors from all over the state of California. I received lots of potential leads, as a matter of fact, my phone is still ringing from attendees from the show and my presence on Fresno Shows website. I am excited to be participating once again in Fresno Shows Tiny House Expo in November.” Andrew from Seabreeze Tiny Homes
”I have been a participant in the Fresno Shows a couple times and have been very impressed. Thousands of attendees from all over the State of California have walked through our Tiny Houses and we continue to receive calls from them. Fresno Shows does an excellent job in organizing the Tiny House Village/Expo and managing the traffic flow. Fresno is THEE place to show off your Tiny House as it was the very first city in the nation to legalize them. I would highly recommend Fresno Shows for showcasing your Tiny House.” Nick Mosley from California Tiny House, VP of Tiny House Association

California Tiny House, Inc. is a family owned and operated business with 8 members of the Mosley Family involved. Every member of the family brings their own unique skill set to the business which has helped propel it to one of the top Tiny House Builders in the the nation. We opened our doors in Fresno, CA in 2014 and have built dozens of Tiny Homes since. We build and design all of our homes in house, and are hands on every step of the way. We are also on the forefront of tiny house legalization and legislature in which we have been a part of some of the most groundbreaking tiny house bills to date. We are strong advocates for Tiny House construction as an educational tool within schools. We have partnered with CTE and ROP programs throughout the state of California to bring Tiny House curriculum to dozens of high schools, which is growing every year. We believe tiny houses are the perfect solution to breathe life back into these programs that have nearly been lost. We absolutely love what we do and how amazing it is to build for clients excited to go tiny!!

Family Kabins - Living smaller is a trend that is growing across the country. While some want the Tiny House lifestyle, there are so many other uses for tiny houses that their popularity is becoming widespread. Because of their small size and the fact that they don't require nearly as much time, money, or resources to build or maintain, a tiny house can fit quite nicely in a backyard or on a vacation property, and can be put to great use as a space for work, relaxation, or family obligations. Remember that "more doesn't mean better" when it comes to how large a home you may desire. Use your tiny house as an office, weekend home, studio or workshop, guest house, or a granny flat for parents or boomerang kids.

Kerman High School students hammered out a major construction project, they built a tiny house! Plumbing, electric, and constructing, a tiny-full scale version! The project gave students practical, hands-on experience. The teachers and students enjoyed learning something new and took pride in their work. Some tiny home builders can't keep up with demand right now. "I've got over a year of work right now and then more coming," co-founder Nick Mosley said. "Other builders across the nation are just as busy as I am."
Van Life Reporter Tracey Kaplan/Bay Area News Group - "My sister thinks I’m crazy. So does my tax guy. They might be right, but it’s way too late now. I’ve already drained my retirement fund, bought a big white cargo van and hired two brothers from Idaho to turn a 2018 Ford Transit into my future home, the only one I’ve ever owned. Like many in the Bay Area, I’ve been priced out of one of the most expensive housing markets in the nation. Sure, I could move someplace cheaper. But I tried leaving coastal California years ago, and after 17 months in Kansas City and St. Paul, I couldn’t get back here fast enough. I’m going to join the #vanlife movement, an offshoot of the iconic VW bus craze of the 60s and 70s that, thanks to social media and the housing shortage, is attracting new vehicles and new people, from gig economy millennials and airline pilots to families and single retirees. I’m hardly the only one in the Bay Area and beyond who’s decided to go house-less so I can avoid spending most of my income on shelter, remain based in a community where I have close ties and actually have money to travel when I retire."
