If you’re considering a Tumbleweed tiny house workshop, this post will help give you perspective as to what it’s like so you can figure out whether a workshop is for you or not.
I found that one of the most valuable parts of events like these are the people you get to meet. It’s not very often that I get to be in a room of 20+ like-minded people to hang out and swap ideas with.
I had such a blast with everyone I got to meet there throughout the entire weekend. In addition to that, as you probably know, Derek “DEEK” Diedricksen, author of “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, led this one.
We got to ask specific questions from framing to caulking and he always had several valuable tips to share with us that only come from someone who’s “been there, done that” and just a few insights like these are worth the cost for attending alone. But you’ll be leaving with a book full of knowledge (and connections).
If you decide to attend, I encourage you to jot down notes as you go along- especially if you plan on building a tiny house yourself. At Deek’s workshop, we learned, laughed, and had a great time hanging out with each other while swapping crazy and amazing tiny house ideas. Here’s a group picture we got to take with most of the people who attended.
This workshop is not for you if you’re expecting to
In addition, you get to ask your own questions as they take you through the entire process of building your own tiny house on a trailer. From the trailer and foundation all the way to the appliances and materials.
When you complete the workshop you will have the confidence and foundation knowledge to take on the project of building your own house. You learn the principles of how to build a home from the ground up, including details on how to attach a tiny house to a trailer. Plus much more, which is all explained here. You can also download this year’s tiny house workshop catalog here if you already haven’t.
Deek, Jay, and other tiny house builders are teaching several workshops throughout the U.S. in the next few months. And if you get your tickets by 11/30/12 (today) you can save 40% off and get a free 1-hour consultation normally valued at $75.
Tumbleweed’s Upcoming Workshops so you can Learn to Build
Tumbleweed has several builders that you can learn from. I can’t wait to go to one of Dee Williams’ workshops since I’ve now attended Jay and Deek’s. Anyway, for an updated list of Tumbleweed’s current workshops click here. If you’re in the U.S. there’s probably one in a city near you!
