I want to present a local workshop for Bay Area Meetups – Jay Shafer

October 4th, 2014, Graton, CA

There’s a lot of erroneous building information being bandied about in the small house world these days, and half of it originated with me. When I designed and built my first tiny house I knew virtually nothing. Now, it seems like I know almost all there is to know about wee abodes and little about anything else. It pains me to see folks building big problems into their little houses because they got some bad information from someone who seemed like they knew what they were talking about.

Because I am limiting the gig to 6 1/2 hours plus another hour 1/2 for lunch in the middle and hosting at my place in Graton (near Sebastopol, CA), I can swing it for $140 per person, instead of the usual higher rate. As an added bonus, we could spend the last 40 minutes of the day touring my tiny house. And BA says she will open her tiny house for tour for 30 minutes in the morning.

I’d cover building, design and regulations, and there will be a lot of time for Q&A, since the barrage of questions I was getting at Alek’s recent gig is what spurred this idea in the first place. I won’t limit the event to just Bay Area Meetup people, but that is likely where the bulk of folks would probably be coming from. I’ll send this idea off to the East Bay Claustrophiles now too. Anyone is welcome to attend, however.

I’m looking forward to this workshop format – local and more casual than my usual workshops.

Thank you!

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.
