The first Tiny House Jamboree is this weekend in Colorado Springs. Organizers say it will be largest gathering of tiny-home enthusiasts in the nation, a reflection of the growing interest in living small. A number of builders will be on hand, including Byron Fears, whose company, SimBLISSity Tiny Homes, is outside of Lyons. Fears plans to give a talk called, “You Don’t Need to Be a Monk to Live Tiny.”

Fears spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
