One Day Tiny House Construction Workshop

Sorry such short notice but if you can go and enjoy!

Join us in Iowa for a one day workshop, kicking off the construction of a 12-foot tiny house on wheels. During this day-long intensive you will frame the floor, anchoring it to a utility trailer.

Dee Williams will teach this workshop on her Midwestern home turf alongside her brother Doug, a long time builder and teacher. The productive day ends with a small bonfire, smokes and a tour of Doug’s beautiful little house!

Read more and register here. You don’t want to miss this chance to learn more from Dee about tiny homes.

The Big Tiny Book and Tour

Dee Williams book hit the shelves yesterday and she is currently on tour. I was one of the lucky few who had the privilege of previewing her book and I have to say it is wonderful and you must go out and purchase it or order either on Amazon or support your local (tiny) bookstore.

If you have a chance please put Dee’s tour in your schedule and stop by and visit with her and have her sign your copy of this book. Here is her schedule:

Dee has a way of writing that just pulls you in. I did not want to put the book down once I started reading it. It is both humorous and sad and Dee has a writing style that just keeps you turning the pages.

I wanted to get a video review done but did not make it so I have a couple other sources who have shared their thoughts through audio and video. So please enjoy and let’s make Dee’s book a best seller.

Tammy Strobel of Rowdy Kittens shares her thoughts on the book.

Three Day Hands-on Workshop by Build Tiny

by Robin Hayes

Come to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley and join us as we build two tiny houses.
During the three days participants may choose between at least three workstations.

Station 1 will be taught by Dee Williams of PAD Tiny houses. Dee’s station will be starting with a new trailer, building the subflooring and attaching it to the trailer. Wall framing will follow.

Station 2 will be taught by Tony Gilchriest, builder at Boneyard Studios. Tony’s station will be framing the subfloor for a tiny house that will sit on a foundation. Wall framing and window placement will follow.

Station 3 will be taught by Larry Herbst, master woodworker with over 30 years experience. You may choose to help Larry build the cabinetry for Lee Pera’s tiny house.

Participants may move freely between each of the workstations, choosing what they want to learn. They may also schedule private sessions with Lee Pera, co-founder of Boneyard Studios to discuss planning or zoning questions, or Steve Newbold to work with SketchUp.

Build Tiny is also offering on optional day on Thursday for true beginners. This class will be about tool usage and safety, as well as instruction on basic construction techniques and terminology.

During our lunch breaks and evening hours we will have speakers who will talk on various tiny house topics. Steve Newbold has his tiny house on site and it will be open for tours. There will be a bonfire each evening for relaxing and story telling.
