THERE IS NO QUICKER WAY TO LEARN AND BECOME INSPIRED THAN TO ACTUALLY PARTICIPATE IN THE DESIGN AND BUILD OF A STRUCTURE.
To learn techniques, tool usage, and design principals, we'll all be collectively constructing a 12' long cabin on a lot near the beach, one that will have a wood stove in the end run, and which will incorporate a good deal of salvaged material in the build. Alongside the cabin, we'll build a small deck, pallet chairs, a workbench, and much more! Its going to be A LOT OF FUN! Decor and color-wise, we can have fun with this too!

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF OUR PAST TEN WORKSHOPS HAS SOLD OUT- so don't wait too long!

The two day, twenty hour course, is $335. Work packets, snacks and coffee, materials, and more will be included. We have a great roster of demos and guest speakers too, with more to possibly be announced. There is no camping at this particular workshop, but there is lodging nearby, AND a state park that is very close with camping is $20.

We also might have an optional add-on third day for those interested- with continued building, an extra demo or two, and a few added perks. Details to come very soon!

NOTE: REALLY IMPORTANT! (that's why I made the font larger!) Please make sure you can attend before you sign up, as with a workshop so close, we can't refund your fees if you should decide not to, or cannot make it for whatever reason- we WILL however give you a credit for a future workshop (don't worry, there will be many)- this way you're not at a loss. Thanks!
