About the Standard Workshop

Over the past 5 years I have been approached 30 times by clients who want a tiny house built on their property. The workshop results in a framed tiny house for the client and an intensive learning experience for workshop participants. Part of the process is that 90% of the material is pre-cut, allowing us to build from foundation to roof framing in two 8-hour days!

MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The pace is that of commercial construction “Go, Go, Go.” Fours walls are up on day one. The instructional style is geared toward absolute beginners with every step explained.

The workshop pace and objectives are of such a scope that the projects taken on need to be orderly and follow a clear operational order. The project is plain vanilla, simple boxes with a twelve-twelve pitch roof.

In reality this is not a tiny house building project, but rather a two day framing and sheathing instructional workshop.

The workshop costs $250.00 and goes from 9:00AM to 5:00PM on Saturday and Sunday. Meals and lodging are not included. However, camping is usually available on site.

King Courteen LIVE at Tiny House Festival in Memphis

This past weekend at Derek “Deek” Diedricksen’s “Relaxshacks.com Tiny House Building and Design Workshop” in Memphis, TN (at the Joe Everson compound of www.TennesseeTinyHomes.com), we worked on FOUR builds: a tiny house, a tiny office cabin, a tree house (future airbnb.com listing), and another full out tiny home from tinyhappyhomes.com. It was the biggest, full-out, hands-on tiny house building workshop that’s ever taken place and a great experience for all.

Beyond that, at this sold out three day camp-out event (65 people in all, including guest speakers such as Steven Harrell, Will Yount, FW Willis, and so many more) we had a side trip to Beale Street, AND some live music on site.

Here is performance by Milwaukee’s King Courteen during one of our breaks from building. This 22 year old is an unbelievable talent, and we’d love to see an undiscovered, independent, very creative, artist do well, so please pass this video on…you never know…our scene could launch this kid.

And be sure to wait for the chorus, even if this style music isn’t your thing…

Also, Deek and Dustin’s next Tiny House and Tree House Workshop will most likely be in August- “Tiny House Summer Camp 2″, which will double one night as a mini, off-grid, folk fest- perhaps with a repeat appearance from King Courteen…

The “Lit by Lanterns Folk Fest” is the name we’re running with…
