The Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont will be hosting the first ever Tiny House Fair June 14-16, 2013. The fair will include presentations on tiny houses from Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed and Four Lights Tiny House Company and Deek Diedrickson of Relaxshacks as well as workshops on how to design and build a tiny house, finish carpentry, using recycled materials, alternative power, composting toilets and creating a community.

Registration is open to the first 100 people who sign up and the $300 cost will include all workshops, presentations and meals. Cabin lodging on the Yestermorrow campus will also be available for $50 for two nights. Participants may also camp on-site for $20 for two nights and the lodging will be free if you bring your own tiny house or camper. Off-campus lodging includes a hostel and several hotels and bed and breakfasts.

Yestermorrow offers over 150 hands-on courses per year in design, construction, woodworking, and architectural craft including a variety of courses concentrating in sustainable design and green building. Operating as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization since 1980, Yestermorrow is one of the only design/build schools in the country, teaching both design and construction skills. Our 1-day to 3-week hands-on courses are taught by top architects, builders, and craftspeople from across the country.

    Should be fun! I’m doing a 90 min demo to open up Saturday, with my brother Dustin, on salvage construction, and how to save a ton of money while building your own home. We’ll have props galore to share, and might even bring up a tiny shelter/ structure to showcase…..

  2. Yes! Can’t wait for the Fair! I’ll be there too, doing a workshop about innovative photovoltaic (solar) electricity ESPECIALLY designed for tiny houses/homes on wheels. I love Yestermorrow – it’s worth it just to see all the cool tiny cabins on campus. Oh, and I’ll have the COMET too for tours/info sessions. Don’t miss this tiny house weekend!

      Hello Mariah,

      Wish I could meet you but I’m in Spain Will you write anything? I can’t locate suppliers of the sort of systems I imaine you will be discussing. So much sun here in Spain. But solar so expensive.
      Want small scale systems for caravans and small homes. Thank you and much luck. Christine Ferguson

    So want to attend, since I live next door, but I am putting all extra cash this year into my land purchase so I can pay it off sooner than later. I am a good 4-5 years from beginning construction anyway. I am sure there will be more opportunities like this in the future.

    This sounds so good! Congrats on organizing something that will benefit so many.

  5. Matt says:

    NOOOO! Why does this have to be the same weekend of my son’s high school graduation?! I really want to attend to see Jay speak – but Saturday is absolutely booked. :(

    I just wanted to say that I am so proud of all of you who are part of making the tiny house movement grow and flourish whether builders, designers or consumers. I love watching all of the new ideas, new products and money saving tips. I hope this movement will become an important part of our everyday society. You are a unique and wonderful group of people whom I admire and appreciate immensely.
    Carry on! Carry on!
