Tiny Home Builders Workshop

Guest Post by Alex Pino

This May 25-26, 2013 Dan Louche and I are hosting a Tiny Home Builders workshop in Alpharetta, Georgia.

This location is about 30 minutes north of Atlanta so it’s easy to get to from anywhere.
It’s a lecture and hands-on experience led by Dan Louche and myself. We’ve already reserved space in a warehouse for this event so that participants will get to:

  • Listen to lectures on tiny houses
  • Tour a real tiny house between speeches
  • Practice building house components using real tools
  • Meet and connect with other tiny house enthusiasts

  • How to design & build tiny houses
  • How to use plans to prepare and build
  • What tools you’ll need and how to use them safely
  • How to find the best deals on materials
  • What you need to know about trailers

What’s even better is that as he explains these concepts, we’ll get to have a real tiny house nearby to reference. Continue reading

Kathi’s Doll House Floor Plans

A couple of weeks ago I featured “Kathi’s Doll House.” There was a lot of interest in seeing floor plans of the house but Kathi was unable to get them off of her software program. Kathi however took the time to draw them up by hand and than mailed them to me so that I could share them with you. I have scanned them and posted them below. Click on each floor plan to see it larger and print it.

Kathi also included another plan she designed that she calls the Moose Lodge.

If you know of some easy way to convert these into computerized floor plans please let me know as I would like to make these more professional plus I have a couple of other plans that are rough like this also.
