Description

An innovative tiny home design and building education weekend, geared toward those interested in alternative small dwellings, begins May 19th-20th, 2018 in Vancouver.


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 home in a healthy way for you and 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 home 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". For more information: www.tinyhealthyhomes.com
