Tiny houses have been on the mind lately – actually in this column. People can’t seem to get enough of the small houses on wheels.

Here’s some more itty-bitty information if you’re interested in the next opportunity in Fresno to see a tiny house.

The Fresno State Tiny House Project and Tiny House Expedition, a community outreach and documentary storytelling project, will hold a tiny house tour, a film screening which includes snippets from Fresno, and a panel discussion at Fresno State from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday.

Fresno State construction and engineering students worked the last two years on a project to build a tiny house for a competition held in Sacramento last month. The expedition is led by filmmakers and couple Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons who traveled the country in their DIY tiny house to document the tiny house experience nationwide.

Here’s the schedule of events:

▪ Tours of the tiny houses will be held 3 to 6 p.m. on lot P21 at the corner of Jackson and San Ramon avenues on campus.

▪ Screenings of the documentary “Living Tiny Legally: Part 1” will show at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the Industrial Technology building, Room 160, near lot P21. The film is about an hour and 10 minutes long.

▪ Fresno State’s tiny house crew will have a talk from 4:30 to 4:50 p.m.

▪ Tiny House Expedition will have a Q&A from 6:10 to 7 p.m. with Stephens and Parsons and Dan Fitzpatrick, the California state chapter leader of the American Tiny House Association.

The event is free and open to the public. Paid parking is required on campus.
