Ready to Make Your Tiny House Dream a Reality?
Join tiny house builder, consultant and construction expert Daniel Bell, in a comprehensive hands-on workshop series. We will guide you step-by-step through the process of building your very own tiny house. Over ten months, we’ll go from a blank page to a completed tiny home, covering everything from design secrets to tools and techniques of experienced contractors. The knowledge and skills gained in this workshop can save you thousands of dollars in contractor fees and let you confidently build your own tiny home.
This all-inclusive hands-on series is broken into 11 sequential workshops suitable for everyone from a complete novice to experienced builders. The workshop schedule is designed to allow you time to plan, organize and complete the monthly steps on your own tiny home.
At the conclusion of our workshop series, you will have completed your own tiny home – and along the way, had fun, made friends, built community and developed a local support group of other tiny house enthusiasts!
This is a life changing opportunity and spaces are limited, so reserve your spot today!
Workshop: Plumbing and Electrical Finish
In this workshop we’ll cover moisture barriers, correct floor slope and proper venting plus different options for finishing a bathroom. You’ll also learn tile work, and different methods for waterproofing a shower pan and controlling moisture to prevent mold and mildew. We’ll compare cost, durability and aesthetics of the three most common tiny home flooring options (laminate wood flooring, linoleum tiles and vinyl flooring) and demonstrate how to install them using common tools. We will also look at alternatives to those expensive widgets at the hardware store so you can keep your toolbox tiny.
There are also a number of critical questions that have to be answered here. We’ll talk through issues of current (AC or DC), voltage, appliances, connections to water sources, discharge of grey and black water, and whether or not to install on-board tanks. If going solar is your ultimate goal, you’ll need to decide that before buying fixtures.
By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to identify the different fixtures available and their compatibility with your off grid system. We’ll cover lighting, ceiling fans, sinks, toilets vs. composters, faucets and drains, as well as the dimensions necessary to fit them in a tiny house. Daniel will also share his tricks and recourses with hard to find, small sized fixtures. Finally, we’ll explain the different tools needed to install these fixtures and how to make sure your installations meet common codes for safety.
