Tiny House Design Weekend

August 28, 2021 - August 29, 2021


An innovative tiny home design and building education weekend, geared toward those interested in basic construction knowledge, building design, healthy homes, and alternative small dwellings from Tiny Healthy Homes. Over two days, participants will learn the “nuts and bolts” of how to design and build their very own tiny house.

During this course, we will discuss trailer (foundation) options, floor plans, legalities, and living systems. Students will be walked through the steps of construction and will learn many do’s and dont’s that will save them grief and money.

Learn how to design your tiny house in a healthy way for you and for the planet. How to save energy, lower your build costs, and be totally tailored to YOUR dreams and needs. The workshop is geared to all skill levels, from custom builders to those who are just beginning their tiny house research journey. We will arm you with all the information you need to avoid pitfalls and get a smooth start! “Fail to plan or plan to fail”.
