Dee Williams at Tumbleweed Tiny House Building Workshop

Dee Williams has been living in her custom made tiny house since 2004. She built it for just $10,000 using mostly reclaimed materials.

Throughout the workshop Dee will answer all of your questions regarding construction of your future tiny house. She will also be sharing her ideas on how to save money by using reclaimed materials (and tips on how to find them).

The course goes over:

  • Sizing cabinets, doors, showers, toilets and more

After you’re done with this class you’ll be an expert in tiny house design and construction. Even if you don’t plan on building it yourself you’ll leave knowing that you can handle managing the project of building your house.
