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.
