design & building
Over two and a half days, participants learn the "nuts and bolts" of designing and building their very own tiny house. This course covers trailer options, floor plans, legalities and both on-and off-grid living systems. Students are walked through the steps of construction, the "big 5" technical topics (orientation, thermal mass, insulation, glazing and ventilation) and learn dos and don'ts that will save them grief and money. With visual presentations, videos and hands-on activities, instructors Kenton Zerbin and Ben Garrett take you step by step through the entire process!
Led by Tiny Healthy Homes founder Ben Garratt, these 1-week intensive, hands-on building workshops for up to 15 students will see a tiny house framed and waterproofed in just 5 days! Experience the most rapid learning curve of your life, increase your confidence using power tools, and gain first-hand experience in the construction process, guided by a professional with more than 20 tiny house builds under his belt. Students must have previously attended the Introduction to Tiny House Design and Building course.
