Design/Build/Downsize: Virtual Tiny House Workshop

Design! Build! Downsize! Have you been wanting to attend a tiny house workshop so you can learn more about what it takes to go tiny but can’t seem to make it work? Introducing The Only Virtual Tiny House Workshop with Mariah & Dan.

Two of my good friends and tiny house dwellers, builders, and designers Mariah Pastell (tiny house builder and blogger from CometCamper.com) and Dan Louche (author of The Tiny House Design and Construction Guide) have been working on something really new and exciting behind the scenes. And today, their idea from months ago becomes reality!


Design/Build/Downsize: Virtual Tiny House Workshop!


What is it?

Design / Build / Downsize is a two-day virtual tiny house workshop that includes 8 in-depth lessons, live group chat and discussion, and a live Q + A session with Mariah and Dan Louche, two tiny house experts!

It’s two days, with two experts, and a bunch of your new tiny community friends.

What will you learn?

Mariah and Dan have created 8 lessons on everything from choosing a trailer, designing your tiny home, building methods, and downsizing.

You can read about the entire curriculum and see all the details here >>>

These are the same courses – plus plenty of extras – that they teach at their live, in-person workshops (that normally would cost as much as $500 plus airfare + hotel to attend).

The workshop is the only virtual tiny house workshop – meaning they’re delivering these trainings and lessons live, but you can watch from anywhere in the world 🙂

Mariah and Dan have been teaching hands-on tiny house workshops together for the past 3 years, and they knew that there was an accessibility issue.

Their workshops always sold out immediately – since only 30 people could attend. The cost was expensive for people who had to travel across the country to attend. And we wanted to help more people in a way that was more affordable, and open to everyone no matter where you are.

Their idea? Bring you a Tiny House Workshop that you can do from anywhere, where you can learn all of the skills they teach at their workshops, get personalized advice, ask all of your questions, and connect with tons of other people embarking on the same adventure of tiny living.

Mariah and Dan each have 6+ years experience designing and building tiny homes, downsizing their lives, and teaching others how to do the same.

I’ve taught workshops with Dan myself, and I can say that his instruction and materials are top notch. I’ve been to Mariah’s workshops as well, and her presentations are always super educational, inspiring, and easy to digest. They really break this stuff down into easy to follow steps so you can do it too.


When is it?

The live Virtual Tiny House Workshop is being held on August 22nd and 23rd!

You need to register by 12 midnight this Friday August 21st to reserve your spot in the workshop.

Even if you can’t come live those days (if you’re busy, or traveling, etc) you can still register and you’ll receive ALL of the materials, the recordings, and the bonuses 🙂

I’m very excited to be bringing you this new project with Mariah and Dan, and they hope to see you there!

If you’re feeling like you have SO MANY QUESTIONS and you really want to make this tiny living thing a reality but you need the guidance, the knowledge, and the “ohhh so that’s how they do that!” insider answers, this is for you!

During the workshop, they’re really getting into the nitty-gritty technical details – like off-grid systems, building materials + techniques, design methods, choosing your home, sustainability, codes and laws, and more.

The result? You’ll have the plan, the means, and the knowledge you need to make your tiny living dream your reality.


Who is this for?

  • If you’re serious about designing, building (or buying) and living in a small (mobile) space, such as a Tiny House, vintage camper, RV or van. If you’re interested in rehabbing cottages or cabins this is for you too!
  • If you know you WANT a simpler lifestyle and home, but don’t how to actually make it happen, find the tools, learn the skills, and follow through.
  • If you have lots of questions about how to design and build a tiny house, and transition to the little life of your dreams.

Check out the full curriculum and register for the Virtual Tiny House Workshop right here.

When you do, you’ll receive not only access to the workshop but also tons of awesome bonuses and $1200 worth of discounts on your favorite tiny house products 🙂
