Tim Anderson

Community Elder

After testing the limits of Tiny Home legality in 5 different Bay Area Municipalities, Tim founded Alameda Maker Farm in 2015 which quickly became the biggest maker space and tiny home community in the Bay Area and later spawned two other urban tiny home villages in Alameda.


A product of the MIT maker space culture, Tim cofounded Z-Corporation, one of the first nontoxic 3-D printing companies in the early days of the technology.


Tim is known as the most prolific contributor to DIY website Instructibles.com and wrote a column for Make Magazine entitled Heirloom Technology focusing on old solutions for new problems.

When Tim isn't advising Tiny Home Communities and Makerspaces he spends the majority of his time on his pig farm in the Delta perfecting the art of future-ready sustainable agriculture.
