PAD Tiny Houses’ two-day Tiny House Basics Workshop is comprehensive but entry-level, introducing you to the unique design and building principles that apply to a house on wheels. With a mix of classroom-style learning and a tour of real tiny houses, they address:

  • Case studies of tiny houses and pocket neighborhoods.
  • Cultivating home—the place and the people who make community.
  • Navigating codes, insurance, and regulations.
  • Tiny house building basics, including how to properly anchor a stick-built structure to a trailer.
  • Tiny house building science, including moisture control, ventilation, heating and cooling.
  • Tiny house systems, including electrical, gas and water systems.

Here’s Dee making the material truly come to life with a model she made by hand to explain the vital importance of properly securing your house to your trailer:

PAD has been teaching this workshop for years, allowing us to fine-tune it to improve it each time, and giving us the chance to inspire a lot of awesome people who went on to build their own tiny homes and become fixtures in the movement! Here’s what Alek Lisefski of The Tiny Project had to say about the PAD workshop experience he had before building his award-winning tiny house on wheels:

“I had done a lot of research prior to attending, but It wasn’t until I finished the PAD workshop that I was convinced this crazy tiny house idea was possible. I met so many like-minded people, got lots of questions answered, and it was the support from Dee, Joan, and the PAD crew that really inspired me to dive in and start my tiny house journey. Here I am, 2.5 years later, having lived in my tiny house for over a year, and I’m loving it! Thank you PAD for kick-starting my project and giving me the confidence I needed to follow it through!” – Alek Lisefski
