What an exciting day!
After nearly three months of plotting, planning, writing, editing, re-writing, and planning some more, Andrew Odom, tiny house dweller and ½ of Tiny r(E)volution, is pleased to announce the launch of their first e-Cours(E).
Called “Small home. Big life.” this four-week, self-guided course is designed to carry you through the beginning stages of building a tiny house. Beginning with the dreaming phase and continuing through the drying in of a tiny house, the course infused my personal experiences with detailed instructions, creative prompts, guest artists, and multi-media, to inspire and educate you. NOTE: This course does not cover electrical work, plumbing, interior design, or code/regulation specs.
Says Odom, “For some time it has bothered me that while there are a plethora of wonderful tiny house workshops out there including those sponsored by Deek and Relaxshacks, Tiny House Talk and Dan Louche, and the Tumbleweed gang, they all required a significant investment including admission fee, travel, time off, etc. I longed for an offering that would allow the dream/builder/designer to stay at home, spend a minimum amount of money, yet learn a significant amount.”
Odom is no stranger to the modern tiny house movement either. Having started out with his wife in late 2009 researching and trying to understand the plight of the tiny house, he has recently finished construction and moved in to (along with his wife and twenty-month old daughter) to their 240 square foot tiny house trailer.
Covered over the last three years in Kitchen Drawer magazine, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Macon Telegraph, on iCNN, the Huff Report, TreeHugger, and more industry-focused websites such as Tiny House Talk, Tiny House Blog, and Tiny House Swoon, the Tiny r(E)volution couple and house is a great example of the full building process.
The next course begins Monday June 24, 2013 and ends Sunday July 21, 2013 but since it is self-paced you can take as little time as you want on a specific lesson or as much time. If you miss a day or simply want to take a break, that is okay.
When asked who can and who should take the e-Cours(E) Odom is quick to point out, “Small home. Big life. is opened to any one that dreams of a tiny house and just isn’t sure where to begin, how to begin, or what to expect, etc. It is a lot of information but is just what you need to get started on the right foot on Day One!”
If you have a computer (or similar device), Internet access, and a love for tiny houses, then you are eligible.
The cost for the four-week course and all the materials involved is only $85 per person. Payable through PayPal you can register and pay tuition on this page. Click Here!

Andrew Odom is an author, designer, community manager, neo-homesteader, and dreamer. Together with his wife Crystal he started Tiny r(E)volution not to be a movement or a political rallying point but rather a way of keeping his head clear and his vision focused as he tried to build a home for his family. He set out to create a site that would showcase the entire process of a tiny house; from conceptualizing to building to living! Andrew has become increasingly passionate about tiny houses and small homes and their ability to reshape the world environmentally, fiscally, and creatively.
