At our Waterman Village location: 466 Dana St.

Tiny-curious? Have questions about what it might be like to live in a small space?  About one quarter of all households in San Luis Obispo County are single-person households and may be particularly interested in small living spaces. Find out more about the benefits and drawbacks of tiny living by visiting out tiny Demo Cottage. We'll be there to answer your questions and facilitate networking with others who are interested in the same things.

Coffee Chats and Workshops are held outdoors, so dress appropriately. Rain cancels. Parking is limited.

Free & Open to the public. Questions?
