Tiny Home Construction Workshop Part I: Aug. 8-9

Have you been daydreaming about having your very own tiny home, but aren't sure where to start? Learn all about materials, construction, different alt-energy systems and much more at Better Farm's Tiny Home Construction Workshop Part I during two days, Aug. 8-9.

Tiny homes (houses between 64 and 300 square feet on average) are appearing all over the country. Affordable, energy efficient and environmentally conscious, this popular home design cuts down on materials consumption, cuts your carbon footprint, and makes for an attractive option for home-ownership—or as an office, studio, work room or guest house!

In this intensive two-day workshop, students will spend mornings and afternoons building a tiny house, including framing, interior and exterior work, insulation, and installation of a compost and rainwater-catchment system. This is a hands-on starter's course in which we will get started on construction of a tiny house on the Better Farm campus. You will acquire the skills and know-how to build your own bungalow, setting you on the course of small-home ownership that is mobile, environmentally friendly and minimalist.

The Fine Print:

Time and date: 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8 and Sunday, Aug. 9
