Join host Derek "Deek" Diedricksen
Ella joined us for the LA workshop and is putting the finishing touches on her Tumbleweed.
"If you can find someone else to share your excitement then I totally believe it to be possible."
Lee attended the DC workshop and is now organizing a group build.
"It will require getting creative about storing my stuff (or getting rid of more), but I’m excited about the challenge."
Brittany came to the Portland Workshop and 5 months later completed her Tumbleweed Fencl.
"I made my mind and was going to build myself a tiny, mobile cabin so that I could live anywhere I wanted."
What You Will Learn
The Tiny House Workshop is where you will learn all the detailed information on green home building that you can't learn anywhere else. During the workshop we will answer common and not so common questions about constructing a tiny home, while also delving into the philosophy and movement behind tiny home living. We go in depth on green building materials, and shares ideas on how to save using recycled products.
Builder and presenter Derek "Deek" Diedricksen has been a fixture in the Small House Movement for the past 5 years. His enthusiasm and "rock and roll" style is unparalleled. Deek has gone dumpster diving to find materials to build houses for less than $1000. The word impossible just isn't part of his vocabulary. Deek is the author and artist of "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts, (and whatever the heck else would squeeze in here!)" and has been featured in the New York Times, PBS, NPR, ABC, and more.
Looking to create your own portable small house design? By the end of your two day session you will have gained priceless knowledge and tools that you can take with you and use to build your very own tiny home for your family.
