Upcoming Tiny House Workshops You Can Attend with Jay Shafer

I wanted to take a moment to remind you that Jay Shafer who is now exclusively working with his own company Four Lights Houses is offering several upcoming tiny house workshops that I thought you should know about.

Jay has been at the forefront of this movement since 1997 when he started designing, building and living in his own tiny houses. During this time he perfected the methods of designing the smallest possible homes for human beings.

Who better to learn from than somebody who has not only designed and built these but lived in them for several years too. Jay has always had a passion for living simply and if I remember correctly this passion started when he was a child and had to help clean his parents’ oversized house.

Great question. Here’s just a little bit of what Jay can teach and offer you if you decide to attend:

  • The chance to connect with other like-minded people
  • How to get around or meet zoning and building codes
  • How to read a set of plans
  • Hands on experience with plumbing and electric
  • How to frame, cut, and more
  • What kind of tools you need
  • And so much more!

    These are the first building workshops I’ve seen that are affordable for me and, even though I can’t make it to any of these, I really want to come to one soon! Please keep up the good work!
