Tiny House Basics Workshop: Introduction to Design and Building
July 20th & 21st, 2013 9:00 am-4:30 pm
Do you dream about building a tiny house? Our Tiny House Basics Workshop is comprehensive but entry-level, introducing you to the unique design and building principles that apply to a house on wheels. We’ll address:
- How to properly anchor a stick-built structure to a trailer.
- Moisture controls and ventilation.
- Electrical, gas, and water systems.
- Cultivating a home—the place and the people who make community.
- Navigating codes, insurance, and the regulations.
The workshop includes one full day and one half day of classroom-style learning, followed by a half day Tiny House Tour where the topics we’ve discussed are brought to life in a tour of pocket community that includes a tiny house and two biggish houses on two city lots.
