WHAT YOU'LL LEARN AT THE VIRTUAL TINY HOUSE WORKSHOP


DAY 1

CHOOSING A TRAILER

Dan will walk you step by step through choosing the right tiny house trailer for your needs. This is literally the foundation of your house - and one of the most important decisions you will make! Make sure you're getting the right trailer for your build and what you need to watch out for.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

If "electrical" sounds intimidating to you, this part of the workshop will clarify your questions and show you just how simple this system really is. The way Dan breaks it down is so easy to understand. His trainings on this topic are step-by-step and practical.

PLUMBING MADE EASY

If you're wondering about how you're going to have a shower, a sink, and running water - we've got you covered! Doing your own plumbing isn't as hard as it sounds! Dan's step by step explanations show you everything you need to know to go forward with confidence. You will see everything you need to feel confident in plumbing for tiny homes.

BUILDING BASICS

What tools do you need to build a tiny house? What methods does Dan use to put together his custom built tiny homes? This lesson will go over the building basics. You will learn about screws vs. nails, best practices, and have all of your "but how does that fit together?" questions answered!

DAY 2

DESIGNING YOUR TINY HOME

Mariah designed and built her own tiny space and has designed many other small spaces. In this workshop, she will show you how the design process works so that you can confidently design a tiny home that is uniquely YOU!

OFF-GRID SYSTEMS, PV, + GREYWATER

Want to take your tiny house off the grid? Planning to use solar power or recycle your greywater? Want to use a waterless composting toilet? Mariah has a degree in Sustainable Design and Build - with a focus on off-grid systems. She will be walking you through the elements of an off-grid tiny home. You don't need to implement all of these systems - but you'lllearn how you can incorporate these money and planet-saving elements into your design.

DOWNSIZING AND TRANSITIONING TO TINY

After downsizing her own life from 1500+ square feet to just 112 sq. ft. (and then 35 while living in a van!), Mariah has helped thousands of people with their own downsizing journeys. She will be showing you how to curate a life you love, WHY we hold on to stuff, HOW to get rid of the stuff, and how to make a smooth transition from dream to reality.

SUSTAINABLE BUILDING AND MATERIALS

If you plan to use sustainable or reclaimed materials in your tiny home, this is for you. Mariah will be covering how to build a sustainable tiny home, how to choose materials, what your options are, and how to save money when building with reclaimed materials!

Thank you for a wonderful workshop! This is the first tiny house workshop I have attended, but it was so much more comprehensive than I could have imagined. Dan and Mariah were both excellent instructors providing great information and enough detail to get you really started as well as suggested resources for more guidance. I was especially thankful to find such a complete workshop available online since distance to a real-life workshop was cost prohibitive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this workshop to anyone who is ready to design and build a tiny house.
