Design/Build Tiny with Dee Williams in New Zealand – March 3-16, 2019
Dee Williams of PAD Tiny Houses will be co-leading a hands-on tiny house workshop in Nelson, New Zealand from March 3 to March 16, 2019. The workshop’s small group of participants will work collaboratively on the construction of a tiny house on a foundation during the day, and work individually on their own tiny house designs at night — all with expert instruction from Dee and Lizabeth Moniz from the Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont.
Read on to learn more about the workshop, why Dee is excited to head to New Zealand, and why you should be too!

Are you getting ready to buy your very own tiny house? Now comes the hard part – finding a reputable tiny house builder.
We at PAD Tiny Houses have heard from a number of people lately who bought tiny homes from professional builders, and now need significant repairs within the first year of living. It’s disappointing, but avoidable, so we asked an expert how to have a good tiny house buying experience.
When Derin Williams from Shelter Wise started building custom tiny homes in 2012, he was among the first tiny house builders in the country. Shelter Wise no longer builds custom homes, but does still offer their popular Hikari Box and Cider Box Tiny Houses, and Derin shares his unique expertise on tiny house design and construction through local and online consulting. With years of experience seeing how his own homes and the homes of others have stood the test of time, here are some of Derin’s tips for buying a tiny house.

From now until January 3, 2017, you can register for $300 per person – an extra $25 off even the Early Bird registration price. An early spring workshop could be just what you need to build during the spring and summer, and be sitting in your new home at this time next year.

The Bunk Box Tiny House from Shelter Wise is a unique, modern design that leaves the wall framing and electrical exposed on the interior. This creates a valuable, seven extra inches of interior space that residents can use, see, and feel. With a flat roof and exposed ceiling framing, the sleeping loft offers extra height and increased functional space. Two skylights, six windows, and an optional second door bring the outside in and increase the feeling of spaciousness. Although it’s built on a 16 foot trailer, the Bunk Box lives as big as a 20 foot house.
