Build your Tiny Home – Sponsor a Hammerstone Course
Are you thinking of building a tiny house? Are you a DIYer who would like to know your construction process was supervised by a professional? Are you interested in supporting educational opportunities for new women carpenters?
Build your tiny house by sponsoring a carpentry class for women!
If you love camping and getting back into nature whenever possible, this DIY micro camper might be the project you’ve been looking for.
Since it’s relatively lightweight you can even tow it with a car! And all of your camping gear can be stored inside when you’re not using it. This makes it really easy because you can just pretty much tow and go. And once you get to your campsite, set up is pretty easy. A lot easier than setting up a tent, right? And for novice builders, this is a great project to start on before building a tiny house on wheels, don’t you think?

I’m excited to tell you about Hammerstone School because it’s a tiny house carpentry school for women in Trumansburg, New York. Best of all, they learn by building tiny houses hands on.
The school offers workshops and courses including Basic Carpentry Skills 101, Tiny House Framing for Beginners, and more. Below you can see how a group of 13 women who are students at Hammerstone built a tiny house on wheels together starting with an old travel trailer.
So if you’re a woman who is in or near the area, this just seems like a great place to get around the right people and to start learning how to build tiny houses (and more). If you want to help spread the word please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

In this post, I get to show you the basics of how to build a tiny house on wheels.
The Brevard Tiny House Company is working on their second project called Robins Nest.
This is a tiny home on a trailer with a deck built right over the tongue of the trailer (a feature that I really like).

Ever Wonder How a Tiny House Is Built?
It all begins with design. In this case, the team at Brevard Tiny House Company develops a scale model to work with their clients and better meet their needs.

If you ever wonder how these tiny houses are built from the trailer to the framing then you’ll enjoy getting to see it all come to life below:
This is Art’s SIP Tiny House on Wheels. SIP stands for Structurally Insulated Panels. They come pre-manufactured with insulation and everything. All you have to do is put the panels together. Don’t worry, at the bottom half of this article, you’ll see how it’s all done.
The outside of Art’s house was covered with 100-year-old reclaimed cypress from around the area in Louisiana. You would never know it was built with SIPs from looking at it, right? Much of the trim and structural supports for the structure are antique pine that was removed from barns and other buildings in the surrounding area.
Inside you’ll find fresh and locally milled tongue and groove cypress to clad the interior walls and ceiling. The flooring is antique pine salvaged from the surrounding area. When you walk inside it actually feels roomy thanks to the 11′ ceiling. The couch triples it’s service as a convertible guest bed while serving even more with storage underneath.
Be sure you take a look at the way Art designed and built his loft ladder because it folds up in a unique, space-saving way that’s great for tiny houses. Enjoy!
