Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop in Portland, OR with Dee Williams

Dee Williams is leading a Tumbleweed Tiny House Workshop in Portland, Oregon on June 16-17, 2012.

This course shows you how to build a tiny house on a trailer step by step.

Portland has always been on my wish list of places to visit in the United States because of it’s growing acceptance of- and even promotion of- tiny homes and bicycle commuting.

I just think that this makes Portland a great example of what other cities can be doing to help people and the environment. And if you’re lucky, Dee might give you a tour of her little house, too, since she lives in the area.

That’s one of the little benefits of attending this workshop in addition to all of the interesting like-minded people you’ll get to meet and connect with.

It’s a 2-day workshop that covers everything from picking the right trailer and setting up a foundation on it to buying the right appliances that will properly fit in a tight space.

If you’re interested in attending, you’ll find all of the information you need to get your tickets over at Tumbleweed’s site. If you’re seriously thinking about going, I encourage you to buy your tickets early (if you can) because you can save up to 40% off by doing it early.

      Thanks Ulla! Maybe you can pull that off if you build yours on a 30′ trailer, depends on your other needs too though, hehe. I’m honored by your compliments thank you so much! 🙂 Hugs, Alex

    There is not much talk here about small mobile food carts, but that is what you really need to check out in Portland. Imagine commuting by bike from your tiny house to your own food cart business. Living the Portland dream.

      Hehe- great idea Joel. Can’t wait to visit Portland and experience it someday soon. Thanks for stopping by!

    Unfortunately, Dee’s tiny house won’t be available for tours during Tumbleweed’s Tiny House workshop June 16-17. However, the one I live in will be! I’ll be speaking about my experience of living in a tiny house, alongside a bunch of great tiny house folks. We’ll be having a tiny house community potluck that weekend, too. It’s shaping up to be quite a big tiny deal! The following weekend (June 24) I’m also coordinating the Pedalpalooza Tiny Home Bike Tour (http://www.shift2bikes.org/cal/viewpp2012.php#24-2771) which will feature five tiny houses!

    Awesome – that looks so amazing!

    You should check out out list of favorite more off the beaten path places (think no tripadvisor crowds!). Most of them don’t even require a flight!
