Yestermorrow’s 12 day tiny house design build workshop starts on September 16, 2012.
Thank you so much, Dee Williams, for bringing this to my attention.
A while back, I shared Yestermorrow’s documentary on tiny houses with you in case you haven’t checked it out already.
Dave Cain, Patti Garbeck, and Paul Hanke will be instructing the course/workshop.
But here’s the interesting part. This is a workshop that shows you how to build a tiny house on wheels (hands on).
It’s in Vermont and they’re looking for someone who would like to offer their little house as the subject of the class.
That seems like a pretty cool exchange, doesn’t it? You provide the design and materials and they’ll build it for you.
Here is the email which was forwarded to me, so that I could share with you:
Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont is hosting a building class focused on building a tiny house on wheels. re: http://www.yestermorrow.org/workshops/detail/tiny-house-design-build
They’re hoping to find a client who would like to offer their little house as the subject of the class — significantly jump-starting the construction process!
Essentially, the client would dictate the design and offer the materials, including the trailer, and the folks at Yestermorrow would begin the construction process as part of the class.
If anyone is interested in getting more information about the class or how their project could be used in the class, please contact Paul Hanke of Yestermorrow.
He can provide information about how the class went last year. I’ve attached a photo of the little house they started last year. The porch and other aspects of the house weren’t complete, but the walls and roof were on and the project well underway by the end of the class. You can contact Paul through: [email protected]
If you’re interested in attending the class so you can learn how to design and build, click here for more information on how to do that.
If you want to get a clue of what to expect out of the class, check out the detailed syllabus on what you’ll learn and do.
If you’re ready to design and build your own tiny house and have the resources to do so and would like to allow Yestermorrow to build it for you while the students learn contact John at [email protected].
