Tiny House Hands-On Build Workshop @ Private Property

This exciting 6-day Hands-On Build Course on Gabriola Island guides you through the experience of building a Tiny House shell. Along with a crew of experienced builders, you will be working on a live tiny house build. During this workshop you will learn the safe use of carpentry tools, gain confidence in the building process, in reading site plans and managing trades. We will cover: Framing, Insulation, Siding, Plumbing, Electrical, Flashing, Window install, Roofing, and much more. While our workshops are designed for anyone getting started on their tiny house journey, for this build course we require that you have previously taken our Foundation Design & Construction workshop first with either Ben Garratt or Kenton Zerbin. If you haven’t taken the Foundation course, one will be held right before the Build Course, May 4-5 in Saanich, B.C. You can bundle both for $1149 ($250 + $899).
