Tiny House Thrift Tips= Video #1 (in a new series)- Saving Money, Time, Resources with your Cabin/Home Project

Pretty self-explanatory...and I'll be doing many more of these down the road. Basically, its a string of no-frills, laid back, short clips I'll be filming for this blog and for The info I cover (along with MUCH more) will be part of the workshops I'm hosting/teaching.

Miami, FL- April 14-15 (where it looks like we'll have some guest speaking segments from Alex Pino of (a Florida-based gent himself), AND Jo-Anne Peck of, who do great work! Register at:


Boston, MA- May 19-20, where its looking good in terms of getting THE original, and first built Tumbleweed Tiny House (the one Jay built and lived in wayyy back) out there on display, AND The Whittled Down Caravan too (built by Tristan Chambers and Libby Reinish)- this caravan travelled across the entire US, and received much media attention in 2010-2011. Its a pretty incredible little road dwelling.

Both workshops will have segments where I talk about the alternate uses of/for free and found materials, and how to save yourself ALOT of time and money with their incorporation into your project. Basically, I want to tell you how to save $2000 or more while building YOUR home....
