Update on our July 9th Tiny Shelter, Hands-on, Workshop in MA

Filed under: Uncategorized

Just additionally confirmed for our 2011 Tiny House/Shelter Workshop in Stoughton, MA….(Again, a hands-on, out in the field workshop…rain or shine).

…An open-house appearance by the mobile wagon “The Whittled Down Caravan” courtesy of its creators Tristan Chambers and Libby Reinish! This duo drove their caravan from Santa Fe to Northhampton, MA last year, and chronicled their experiences in their blog Whittled Down.

More recently, they were featured in a multi-page spread in Readymade Magazine too.

Tristan and Libby will be on hand to talk about the building of their caravan, their travels, and to allow our workshop attendees to paw through its interior.

ALSO- NYC’s Mimi Zeiger (tiny house author and architect) will be speaking to our guests, Alex Pino of Tinyhousetalk will be making the trek from Florida to talk about his involvement and work in the field, I’ll be heading up some demonstrations and giving tours of the projects and mini-cabins on my property, AND Dustin “Dr. Demolition” Diedricksen, an Environmental Engineer, will also be fronting a few hands-on projects as well. We’ll be filming much of this workshop. and YOU, for upcoming editions of our show “Tiny Yellow House” too!

Fees (after much deliberation and taking into account materials, two meals for all attendees, some travel expenses for guests, hardware, tools, hiring a runner/helper, free handout materials/books, and the 7000 other things and time and money-consuming tasks involved with planning something like this…) One Day Workshop- 8am to 9pm (or later- culminating in a bonfire)

Before April 30th- $195.00

After April 30th- $225.00

For reservations and more info- THERE will be a max of 12-15 people in this workshop- so don’t “dilly dally”!

I love their little wagon…especially the enclosed cat walk.

Comment by Lisa

yeah- the cat cage is pretty clever…

Comment by relaxshax

I think my favorite part of this mobile shelter is the cat door and the built in kennel that keeps the cat from getting away when you are not home. Ingenious.

Just got back from Jay’s workshop in Orlando, I had a great time and learned a lot. Now I’m really wanting to start building… Badly!

We had a room with 36 tiny house people! It was fun. Lots of great ideas floating around the room and some very interesting people.

Looking forward to your workshop too it’s going to be a blast for everyone that comes.

Talk to you later

Sign me up for the workshop, Deek; looks like a blast! Looking forward to getting started on a teardrop camper soon then a tiny house/pallet house. Still trying to find the perfect spot for the treehouse!

Just nabbed your book so can’t wait for that! Hope to catch you in Vermont sometime when you’re up this way. Keep up all the great stuff (technical term) you’re doing, Deek! Cheers.
