Next week, Washington, D.C.’s tiny home community, Boneyard Studios, will open their doors with two events, a Q&A forum and a tour.

Both events will reveal the process to building and the experience of living in one of the city’s tiny homes, known as The Matchbox. The itty bitty residence measures only 150 square feet and boasts an eco-friendly design by being fully off-grid, zero-waste, and self-sustaining.

On Thursday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m., there will be a talk by Jay Austin, Boneyard Studios Co-founder, as well as a question and answer section. At Patagonia, located at 1048 Wisconsin Avenue NW, the no-cost event will offer free snacks and beer.

At 11 a.m. on Sunday, December 11, the public will be able to tour the nooks and crannies of the 150-square-foot Matchbox. Unfortunately, ticket sales for this event, located at 925 Rhode Island Avenue NW, seem to have ended, but keep an eye out nonetheless. [UPDATE 12/2: Ticket sales have now reopened here.]

If you’re unable to make it to either event, you can still get a walkthrough of The Matchbox with the below video. Be sure to watch out for future events.
