Tiny Houses and Workshops

Workshops are they worth it? I had the opportunity to attend one of Andrew Morrison’s straw bale workshops a couple of years ago. We spent a week making new friends and learning new skills. Andrew has a way of communicating his vast knowledge to each attendee and he makes it fun also. For the very first time he is offering Tiny House Workshops and if you have the opportunity to go I would highly recommend it and say that every dollar you spend will be worth it. -Kent Griswold (Tiny House Blog)


  • I want to build my own tiny house to save money but want to make sure to avoid making costly mistakes during the build and down the road
  • I bought/drew up some killer plans but find myself terrified to actually pick up the hammer and get started
  • I want to build it right and safely not just for myself but for others sharing the road with me when I’m towing it
  • I don’t want to be the person that says “How hard can it be?” and then become the cautionary tale
  • I don’t understand buildings codes and the zoning process and don’t know if I even need to go those routes
  • I’ve never built anything before and don’t know if I can build my own tiny house
  • I am in the middle of drawing up my plans but no matter what I try, I just can’t get x, y, or z to fit
  • I want to live tiny more than anything but don’t know where to park my dream house
  • Electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems scare the heck out of me
  • I don’t know if I can live in a tiny house with my kids or significant other without us all wanting to kill each other
  • I believe I can build my own tiny house but I sure could use just a little more reassurance and support in my quest

The Morrisons


  • We are a husband wife team, Gabriella and Andrew Morrison, and the designers and builders of the hOMe tiny house as well as TinyHouseBuild.com
  • We live full time in hOMe and it’s our favorite house ever
  • We have personally taught over 2,000 workshop participants since 2004 and in that time have seen that anyone with passion, perseverance, and a willingness to learn can build their dream home
  • We live with our two teenage kids in our tiny house compound in Oregon
  • Andrew has done everything from being a general contractor, eco housing developer, teacher, workshop leader, designer, to building our own dream tiny house. He has been the guide/teacher on several instructional how-to video series (including the “How To Build Your Own Tiny House” 6 hour production) and has been writing about how to build since 2004.
  • We have been married for 18 years and have experienced first hand that committed relationships can thrive in small spaces and not just with each other but with our children too
  • We believe that building shelter with one’s own hands is an integral part of being human and have seen first hand (a couple thousand times) how elated and enlivened people become when they learn how to build
  • Our passion is to inspire others to achieve their building dreams by giving the very best instruction, tools, resources, and encouragement

Three workshops


  • Our workshops are amazing! They are comprehensive, fun, engaging, super instructional, supportive, and inclusive of people of all ability levels
  • Our workshops are packed full of detailed information. We discuss construction aspects such as designing, trailer selection, framing, windows and doors, electrical, plumbing, cabinets, floors, appliances, roofing, finish work, working with contractors, zoning, codes, where to park your tiny house and more.
  • Our workshops also cover stress management which is vital to the overall success of your project. We will spend time in a fun and meaningful way learning effective tools for coping with the stresses that will inevitably arise while you build
  • Our workshop goal is to prepare you with a totally rounded educational experience so that when it comes time for your build, you are confident that you can handle anything that comes up
  • Our workshops happen over the course of two full days on weekends. They are jam packed with information, resources, content, Q&As, and expert instruction from Andrew himself
  • They are being held in Orlando, FL (Feb 13&14), Denver, CO (March 12&13), and San Francisco (April 16&17), 2016
  • They are on sale right now for just $299 per ticket (buy two tickets and receive $50 off PER ticket)
  • Our workshops get you on the very best path towards your tiny house dream by providing relevant, safe, time and money saving building techniques
  • Our workshops take into consideration that some people have never built anything before and are led by someone (Andrew) that has taught hundreds of novices in a supportive and fun environment
  • The Friday before each workshop we have a really fun tiny house party at the venue. Bring yourself and a friend and enjoy getting to know all the other amazing tiny house lovers

  1. On the East Coast, build-tiny.com has a spring and fall hands-on build workshop. I’ve attended 3 of them and had my SIP tiny house built at one of them. Highly recommended.
