Tiny House Summer Camp 4

Thursday, June 4, 2015

Its Official! TINY HOUSE SUMMER CAMP 3 in Vermont- Sept. 18-20th 2015!!!

ACTUALLY BUILD THINGS!!!! Hear from speakers, see demos, camp-out, tour tiny houses and more!!!
SEPT 18th-20th (and a possible 4th day option (21st)- 2015
Orleans, VT (The Northeast Kingdom of VT)

THIS will be the thread where I start adding our speakers, sign-up info, build-projects, demo roster, camping details, and MORE! We're always adding to the roster.....and it usually ends of being OVERKILL- in a really good way!

     Dustin and I have now hosted over a dozen HANDS-ON TINY HOUSE BUILDING WORKSHOPS from Sydney, Australia, to Fargo, North Dakota and everywhere in between, and ALL of them have sold out, so don't snooze on this one! We've also hosted/designed/built for the HGTV/DIY series "Tiny House Builders", and for programs on The History Channel, and beyond.

     The workshop, which includes building materials, packets, a camping space, and more, is $399 for the THREE day course (its well over 30 contact hours of building and design). A Fourth day option might be available for $95 more.

We will have an instructor and pro for every FOUR attendees. Good luck finding that ratio anywhere else! And again, WE ACTUALLY BUILD THINGS!

Furthermore, the hiking and fishing in the area is great and we're close to covered bridges, quaint general stores, and some of the cleaner lakes in the entire US!

TINY HOUSE SUMMER CAMP is THE BEST and BIGGEST (though still small at only 40 students) workshop we do, and combines ACTUAL building, with demos, tiny house tours, camping, live music, and more! Better yet, the setting is TEN off-grid acres in Northern Vermont, with EIGHT shelters/cabins in the woods (many of which guests will have a chance to stay in).

(Below, from out HANDS-ON workshop in Australia)


Never stayed in a rustic log cabin? Never cooked by a fire? Never built a tree house? Never spent a night in a tree house? Never built anything? Want know-how on framing, roofing, siding, and all-things design? Tricks of the trade?
Well, here's your super-fun crash course in ALL of that- and for ALL levels of building.

Our workshops are very eclectic, fun, and packed with projects! We've had MANY people re-take our workshops just for the hang-out/goodtimes aspect of it. We also mixed in collaborative art projects with our builds too!

There's SO MUCH going on, and so much to see, that we hand you a MAP of the premises when you arrive. That pretty much sums it up!

This workshop will be three days long, with a possible add-on FOURTH day, for those interested.

WE WILL have a NEW tiny house come visit- one from Laurie's Certified Construction in Colchester, VT- one I designed. And more....
Check out our video tour below....

MUCH MORE to be announced! Believe me, it'll be overkill, so don't fall asleep at the wheel, and register before its sold out. It WILL sell out.

And HERE is something we built in three days as a group at our last workshop in CT! 

AND we built this shelter-as-art piece in FARGO, ND with another group in just TWO days.....

And we designed and built THIS, in Sydney Australia in three days.....

AND, a video clip from one of our musical performers last year- Milwaukee's King Courteen. This was shot on the trails on our property (it gives you a feel of the landscape)

NOTE: Refunds: Up until 5 weeks before the workshop, you get a full refund, After that point, there are no refunds, but you will get a rain check for a future workshop in trade, so that you aren't out the fee. Most workshops do not do this and just don't give you a refund- period. We want to make sure that should you not be able to make it for whatever reason, and you let us know before 5 weeks prior to the workshop date, that you are able to use your credit for another future workshop.

  6. I'm signed up for this workshop and I can't wait! Question: it says there's cabins/camping spaces. Will we be able to stay in the cabins? Or should I bring a tent?

  7. Are there any additional pictures or new videos of this tiny house collaboration between you & Laurie's Certified Construction? We can't make it out to VT, but I would love additional views of the space. I adore that raised sitting area by the corner windows.

  9. Are all your buildings built with ladders?

    1. Very few of them are actually.... I think we only have 2 of eight cabins on the workshop property like that....

  10. Just wondering if the only way to get up and down inside your tiny houses is using a ladder, and why?
    I think that (and it's only my opinion) if inside there are no actual steps and just ladders then you're buildings are for a young buyer, as older people need safety and steps also provide additional storage. Just saying. Nice buildings though.

    1. Not true- see above reply I left for you..... even the one Vermont cabin that looks like it has a ladder, is really a gallery-stairway (like on a boat), not vertical.... we've done plenty with stairs too.... or that are all just one level....
