Build Your Tiny House by Sponsoring a Carpentry Class for Women

Build your Tiny Home – Sponsor a Hammerstone Course


Are you thinking of building a tiny house? Are you a DIYer who would like to know your construction process was supervised by a professional? Are you interested in supporting educational opportunities for new women carpenters?

Build your tiny house by sponsoring a carpentry class for women!

When you sponsor our classes with your tiny house project, there are certain benefits to you, the client: the labor done by the classes is free, you get to participate in any of those classes free of charge, and you receive the intangible benefit of getting to know a community of women participating in the construction of your house.

There are certain obligations when you collaborate with our school to build your house. All materials in the construction of the tiny house are paid for by the client, as well as a portion of the labor necessary for the tiny house to be ready for scheduled classes (including design and project management).


At the end of the scheduled classes, you are free to take the project as-is, or to hire Hammerstone to complete your tiny house build.

If you are interested in pursuing this creative and collaborative way of building your tiny house please contact us by email at [email protected] or check us out at http://www.hammerstoneschool.com/

    You better watch out them women don’t teach you something, seeing how active they have been in the industry… I would even venture to say there maybe more women in the Tiny House industry today then there are men…! And I think it is just great, because they tend to be a little more meticulous in their method then men…!Sorry guy’s…!

      Hehe 🙂 I think it’s great to have both men and women working toward this goal. We all have something to bring to the table!

    This sounds like an excellent opportunity. In just a few months I’ll be able to support this fantastic cause that enables people to build tiny houses with help from other community members. This is very exciting!

      That’s great! Are they going to build your tiny house?

        In the short term, I’m probably going to get something prebuilt, but I would like to help in building a tiny house to gain the skills.

    this just sounds sexist to me.
    anything that picks out a specific gender does. let’s try to be inclusive to all.
