INTRODUCTION TO TINY HOUSE BUILDING & DESIGN
Geared toward anyone, from custom builders to those just starting their tiny home journey, these inspiring weekend workshops are led by tiny house designer and builder Ben Garratt, of Tiny Healthy Homes.
Over two days, participants will learn the "nuts and bolts" of how to design and build their own tiny house. Included in this course, we will discuss trailer options, floor plans, legalities and living systems. Students will be walked through the steps of construction, and learn many dos and donts that will save them grief and money. Learn how to make your custom tiny home have a responsible ecological footprint, and save energy, lower your 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!
Schedule: February, 9 - 10 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue: Robert’s Creek Elementary School Library, Robert’s Creek, B.C.
