You know you're ready to make your tiny living dreams a reality - but figuring it all out from scratch? So overwhelming!

Where do you start? You have questions. You have concerns.

You want to learn from someone (or two people!) who have been there, done that.

DESIGN. BUILD. DOWNSIZE. is where your tiny living dreams become a solid plan and a reality, and your complicated questions become easy answers so you can really DO this tiny living thing.

In this virtual tiny house workshop, you will learn everything about buying a trailer for your tiny home, designing and building your tiny home, how to incorporate off-grid systems and sustainable building methods, downsizing, and so much more.

These are the exact trainings that Dan Louche (Tiny Home Builders) and Mariah Pastell (Comet Camper) give at their tiny home building workshops, which usually cost more than $500+ to attend.

This virtual workshop is a super affordable alternative to OUR live TINY HOUSE workshopS (WHICH SELL OUT EVERY TIME).

This will be a live virtual workshop with discussion and Q + A time throughout, so all of your questions will get answered.

The Virtual Tiny House Workshop is currently closed for enrollment. Get on the waitlist to find out when our next session will start! 

There will be a LIVE Q + A Session with Dan and Mariah, plus discussion board and live chat during the workshop.



Dan Louche and Mariah Pastell have taught at over 30 tiny house workshops and events over the past 2 years.

Those live events are great, and we love meeting and talking with so many other cool people that share our interests.

But there’s one problem, and it’s one that we've noticed AGAIN and AGAIN: Those workshops aren’t always very accessible.

They are either far away from where you live, only happening on a weekend when you just can’t make it happen, or the cost is just too expensive for two days (including airfare and hotels!).

We get it!

So we invite you to join us for this one-time, live workshop, where you will get to meet your fellow future friends, spend two days learning and talking tiny, and get personalized, expert advice from us.

You don’t have to be building a “tiny house” per se to do the workshop either. If you want to re-design the living space in a trailer, if you want to design your small house in a box van or a cargo van conversion, or renovate a small cabin, you are welcome to join us.

Enrollment for Design / Build / Downsize, the Virtual Tiny House Workshop, is currently closed. Get on the waitlist to find out when the doors open again! 

Learn from the experts - who have both done this before and lived it too.

Dan and Mariah are both experts in their field, having both designed, built and lived in tiny homes.

We don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk.

Mariah has designed and built multiple tiny homes for clients, has renovated three vintage trailers into eco-awesome off-grid homes, and has modded out and lived in a custom camper van. She's also helped thousands of people downsize into the tiny lifestyle through her consulting services and online course, Tiny Transition and Downsizing™.

Dan is the tiny house building and systems expert, with a best-selling book about building your own tiny home, The Tiny House Design and Construction Guide. Dan has built many, many tiny homes, teaches popular in-person workshops, and is one of the original tiny home builders.

They have taught many in-person tiny house workshops together (and more than 30 combined). They both wanted to create a way for more people to get the information they needed to start designing and building their own tiny homes, without the investment of going to a live workshop (which have limited spots available and always sell out!).



Dan Louche has designed and built many tiny homes, and teaches the popular Tiny Home Builders workshops. He is the author of the Tiny House Design and Construction Guide. You can find Dan at

Dan has been designing and building tiny homes for 6 years. He has extensive experience in building, systems, plumbing, and electrical for tiny homes. Dan's company, Tiny Home Builders, sells quality homes, trailers, plans and more. His workshops sell out every time and people often travel from across the country to attend.

Mariah Pastell has designed, built and lived in tiny homes and off-grid vintage campers for the past 5 years, and teaches the popular Tiny Transition and Downsizing course. Mariah can be found at

Mariah has a degree in Sustainable Design & Build, multiple certificates in the field and has built many tiny homes and renovated multiple vintage trailers to be off-grid, sustainable tiny homes. She's lived in any tiny, small, mobile situation you can imagine - and loves teaching others how to make this tiny dream into their REAL LIFE.

I feel completely ready to build a house on my own!
