2nd Annual Tiny House Village
The Tiny House Village is onto it's 2nd Annual at the 2017 Fresno Home & Garden Show. With it's new location indoors you will have plenty of time to view the latest trend in housing regardless of the weather! Show goers will be able to explore a whole neighborhood of "tiny houses" and see what it's like to manage living in less than 400 square feet! Check out these unique, streamlined houses. Could this be the perfect compact kingdom to call home? Will you join the tiny house movement or stick with wide-open spaces? You may be surprised at the creature comforts offered in a limited living area...take a look!
This should be the news story on the airwaves right now. "The City of Fresno, California, allows property owners to subsidize mortgages by utilizing tiny houses as rental properties." In effect the city counsel and mayor of Fresno have rewritten the zoning laws specifically to allow Tiny Houses on wheels. This is a huge precedent! It is very different from other municipalities that have carved out specific areas where Tiny Houses are allowed. This rule allows property owners to relieve some stress from large mortgages and at the same time, allowing lower income individuals and families a pathway to living in better neighborhoods. The draw back is nominal and the payoff is a healthier society.

Rewild Homes was started to fill a niche and support a movement of living simply, using less, and doing more. Our compact, high-quality, portable cabins are built on Vancouver Island using locally sourced materials. We are simple, sustainable, and specialized.
Patrick started Rewild Homes out of a dedication to sustainable living and a knack for forward thinking. He grew up in Nova Scotia and studied environmental sciences in Newfoundland and forestry in New Brunswick before packing up his bags and travelling to the other side of the country. After landing in Nanaimo to study resource management at Vancouver Island University, Patrick spent his summers managing a remote fishing lodge in Bamfield and the rest of the year building homes with a contracting company in town before taking the leap and starting Rewild Homes.

Oasis Tiny Homes
Oasis Tiny Homes is a new company formed by brothers David and Chris Dailey. They are licensed California contractors, specializing in custom home building and renovation for over 30 years. The brothers first became interested in tiny homes a couple years ago. Attending the 2016 Fresno Home Show and seeing tiny homebuilders work inspired them to combine their years of experience and connections to create and develop their own tiny home designs. The tiny house they are bringing to the show is loaded – the doors are solid core, the sheeting is oversized for strength, and all significant fasten points are strapped and screwed. The attention to detail is evident throughout. The exposed beam ceiling and generous use of wood creates warm and inviting rooms. The interior space is extraordinary for a house of this size. The city of Fresno has taken the initiative to create a tiny house friendly city and is proving to be a trendsetter for the tiny house community.
