Join the folks from Boneyard Studios to learn how to design and build a tiny home on wheels.

When & Where

This September 14-15, 2013 in Washington, DC. Here’s some of what you’ll get if you decide to go:

  • Technical details on building systems appropriate to tiny houses
  • Trailer selection: pros/cons of various existing designs and our recommendations for trailers, modifications, and how to gain the most space in your house
  • Tiny house plans: one half day will be a Google sketch-up class taught by an architect where you will start designing your own house, choosing from two base models or starting your own base plan
  • Opportunity to tour four tiny houses at Boneyard Studios and learn about the different construction styles, building systems, and interior designs
  • A detailed material list and project planning timeline for your tiny house project
  • Learn what you can do yourself versus what you might want to contract out
  • Building and zoning codes and how to go about finding land for your house
  • List of resources (focused on the Mid Atlantic/NE region)
  • Pre-workshop materials to get you up to speed on construction and tiny house concepts, so you can get your technical questions answered during the workshop
