Tiny House Academy
Since May 2017 Jan Willem and Noortje, the founders/owners of Tiny House Academy, live in their own tiny house which they designed and built themselves. Jan Willem’s background as an architect, the joint creation of their own Tiny House and their passion for knowledge sharing inspired them to start the Tiny House Academy.
The Academy focuses on DIYers: people who want to design or build a Tiny House themselves. The lesson packages consist of a combination of physical lessons and online lesson modules. You can also approach Tiny House Academy for a consultation on the most diverse issues for your project.

AHAD.nu, Antti Hänninen Architectuur en Design
Antti Hänninen designs timber-frame houses and is increasingly receiving assignments for the design of Tiny Houses. For Antti, a Tiny House is a complete house, but small. The Tiny Houses that he designs comply with the building regulations, making them comfortable and small for residents in summer and winter.
The Tiny House architect also advises on the application possibilities of helophyte filters, compost toilets, water collection for showers, drinking water, water for use in the edible garden and generating electricity. He also designed the first Tiny House On Wheels, for which a permanent Environmental Permit has been granted and works together with constructors and other consultants.

Menno Versluis – Woonpioniers
Designer Menno Versluis lives with his girlfriend and son in a Tiny House and specializes in designing compact dwellings. Menno wants to stimulate the imagination and helps in making well-founded decisions about the layout, the use of materials and the installation technology. This can also result in a design, where you build part of the house yourself.
Menno is part of the collective Woonpioniers where he is supported by a network of experts in the field of biobased construction, collectivity, modularity, energy, urban development and landscape. He is happy to be available for individual pioneers, but of course also for initiative groups.

Register of (aspiring) Tiny House residents
You want to live in a Tiny House, but where is that allowed? The register of Tiny House residents, an initiative of Marjolein Jonker, will help you on your way. You will automatically receive a message when a new Tiny House residential location is developed in the region of your choice.
If municipalities, housing corporations or land owners are looking for interested Tiny House residents, they can also request a contact list from the register. Participants in the register receive an overview twice a month of all developments related to Tiny House residential locations in their chosen provinces (maximum three).
Here you will find all information about the Register of (aspiring) Tiny House residents
