Two of my good friends and tiny house dwellers, builders, and designers Mariah Pastell (tiny house and vintage camper expert and blogger from CometCamper.com) and Dan Louche (author of The Tiny House Design and Construction Guide, TinyHomeBuilders.com) have been working on something really new and exciting behind the scenes.

Do you dream of living mortgage-free in your own hand-built house? What would you do if you owned your own home without a mortgage? If you already live mortgage-free how does it impact your life?

I’ve enjoyed following your great blog for a few years, and as part of my steps towards building my own tiny I attended Deek & Dustin’s fantastic inaugural workshop in Sydney late March. The tiny we built blew us all away, it was incredible to see largely recycled materials go from mere bits of wood and ‘stuff’ into a tiny skid house in 3 days. Under Deek, Dustin, Rob (Scott of Hollyburton tiny house studio truck renown) and Anthony’s expert guidance, 25 building and construction newbies learnt new skills, wrangled tools they’d never used before and flat out surprised themselves at what they could do with their own hands. One of our participants even flew in from Singapore to attend, and has since made her own tiny house mark in New Zealand – yes, she refurbished a tragic trailer into a stunning tiny, all within a few weeks of attending the course!

Ready to Change YOUR World? You do not want to miss this!

This is a one-of-a-kind, never before, FIVE DAY, HANDS-ON tiny house workshop! Join us and spend the week with a power-house of tiny house personalities: the renowned tiny house guru Jay Shafer, tiny-houser B.A. Norrgard, and construction professional Daniel Bell at The Sanctuary Minnesota, a scenic, wooded 80 acre facility.

Get your day started with an on-site yoga class & a continental breakfast.

During the day we will break into groups and rotate between swinging hammers and classroom time. We will frame one of Jay’s tiny house designs, and have classroom presentations covering a comprehensive list of tiny house and tiny living topics. B.A. is doing another tiny house road trip and bringing her Gifford house with her for you to tour!

In the evenings we’ll sit around a fire pit outside and have tiny house chat – bring your acoustical instruments and your tiny house community dreams!
