Our Tiny House Workshops

We offer courses that teach you how to design and build your own tiny house with a responsible ecological footprint. You CAN build a house that will lower your costs, save energy, help you live simply and work creatively with your available resources. These workshops are geared toward all skill levels, from custom builders to those who are just beginning their tiny house research journey.

FOUNDATION COURSE: DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION

This intensive hands on workshop with Kenton Zerbin covers the theory and practice of good building design, taking you through practical exercises so you can start planning and designing your own tiny house.

Students are walked through the various stages of construction, the “Big 5” technical topics (orientation, thermal mass, insulation, glazing, ventilation) trailer options, floor plans, legalities, and both on-and off-grid energy and utility systems and more.

Reality Check Your Tiny House Design

Get the tools and support you need to start your own tiny house design in 3D, then workshop it in Virtual Reality with SketchUp experts Jake & Kiva PLUS have a real world builder tell you the truth about whether or not your design is going to fly!

2 types of seats will be offered: the Full Experience, in which you create your own design before the workshop, and explore it in real-time using Virtual Reality tools to modify your plan with expert guidance, or the Audit Experience, in which you get to try out SketchUp, and spectate the other full-experience designs and consultations.
