    Title of Presentation/Theme: Tiny House Design-Build

Additionally, Isa has presented at secondary schools, universities, and at dozens of Public Libraries in MA, ME and NH as an evening presenter covering the general topic of Tiny Houses; from design essentials, off-grid options, and evolving policy to living tiny and ADU limitations and opportunities.


Isa earned an M.A. in Regional Economic and Social Devleopment with a focus in sustainable development at UMass Lowell. In graduate school she spent much of her time learning and sharing information about Green Building via the radio show she produced, The Long View. Immediately after grad school, she focused on the development of green focused businesses as a consultant and designer; applying all: her English Writing B.A. and practical adult training and professional marketing background in New England. Isa has a deep understanding and acknowlegment that commercial interests must defer to developing financial success. She artfully intersects economic growth with persistent sustainable product development and messaging. Now, over a decade later, she is the lead designer and Project Manager of the design-building of tiny homes and offices at Tiny House Northeast - New England.


Isa bought her first tiny home, a tiny Victorian Era wood cottage, at 19-years old. She has been involved in the maintenance of that antique and other residential home building and maintenance since then, including contracting, resourcing materials and managing logistics for building projects for Tiny House Northeast in NH, MA, VT, ME, CT. RI, and Upper NY State..


She is also the proud owner of a micro-building on wheels, constructed ONLY to replace a tent! A sturdily framed building, It includes a reclaimed antique window, scrap ship-lap, and a painted metal roof. It handles a twin bed, hanging clothes' storage, small table with 2 chairs, and shelves, in a building whose interior dimensions are a mere 4.5' x 9'.
