A Visit with Kathy Rose, Tiny House Pioneer
Kathy Rose — you might remember her from the Wooden Tent, which was both a place in which she lived and taught photography, and an actual “wooden tent” that had been moved from the Campground — is about to downsize.
She’s got the house: a 144-square-foot abode (that’s right, about 12 by 12. The whole house. It’s called a tiny house for a reason). Now she just needs a place to put it.
When Kathy, who’s 78 now, learned last June that she would need to move from her home, she visited housing and elderly housing offices, and learned about the long lists of people waiting for similar places. So she had to get creative. We started our conversation on the way to see her tiny house.
