This is a HANDS-ON workshop- you'll ACTUALLY build! Bring old clothes, goggles, gloves, water, sunscreen, a hat, and a cordless drill with charged batteries IF you have one. A hammer and hand-saw is a good idea too- again, IF you have one. 

Its a FIVE hour class= 9am to 2pm. This one day only. Saturday June, 16th. 

This particular class is more geared towards those wanting to learn the basics of framing (we actually will frame a couple walls), the ins and outs of tiny house building basics (both on a trailer, and on a foundation), and will cover the following:

-Framing (headers, roof rafters, doorways, and more)

-Building your base

-Sheathing techniques

-Materials and fastener use/choices

-Roofing Options 

-Tools of the trade- what you'll TRULY need, and what you can save your money on/pass on

-The DON'Ts of Tiny House Design

-Time, money, and hassle saving tricks of the trade (from lumber to plumbing in an open QnA format/talk). 

-How to build for less- the secrets of reuse and salvage. 

-And more! 

IF this workshop sells out, we might host a smaller/shorter one on Sunday morning too- covering some other alternative techniques of building and design....
