Some day I would like to own and live in a Tiny House. Heather and I are researching shipping container architecture, but cute traditional Tiny House cabins, like the one pictured to the right, are intriguing too.
I’d never really thought about building one myself though; I figured I’d let the Tiny House building experts, like the folks at tiny house construction company Portland Alternative Dwellings (POD), handle that.
And they will.
But they also will help you build your own tiny house, if that’s more your style. And their next one-day tiny house construction workshop is on June 5th, 2010 in Portland.
We’ll focus on basic tiny house construction with an emphasis on:
* House-to-Trailer Connection
* Stick-Framing and Construction Techniques
* Tool Use, Safety and Good Clean Fun
This is a hands-on workshop, where you’ll learn how to safely build a tiny house. We’ll construct the foundation and at least one wall of a twenty-foot little house. We’ll also discuss building materials, moisture control, ventilation, and other relevant tiny house issues. Dee’s house will be available to illustrate key building points and the finished product.
Visit the POD website for more information, including how to register.
