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.

    Hi Aldene,

    Below is a link to photos of the build. It’s short on interior pics, but you will find a handful near the end. Still needs a few finishing touches, but you should get the idea. 🙂
