Lee Pera, co-founder of Boneyard Studios Tiny House Community

Lee Pera is a geographer, educator, organizer, and co-founder of Boneyard Studios, the nation’s first tiny house community.

IMG_0617As a geographer, I am passionate about redefining the ways we live and create community in highly-transient and densely-populated urban spaces.  I have worked with communities in the U.S. and Latin America on land rights and sustainable community development as an educator and geographer.  I love planning events on the Boneyard Studios lot: community work days, tiny house concerts, and educational events.  Having moved every couple of years my entire life, I’ve become very adept at adapting to any type of situation I find myself in, but I haven’t been as good at actively defining what it is I want to create in my life and building the structures and support to achieve those goals.  I’ve often craved my own place, yet it’s been hard for me to consider buying a house because I’ve never felt that I’ll be someplace long enough to put down roots.  Given my background I fell in love with the idea of tiny houses a few years ago, and decided I wouldn’t let the fact that I live in an urban area deter me from my desire to build one.  I co-founded Boneyard Studios Tiny House Community last year in Washington DC where I am currently building my tiny house.
