Deek's BROCKTON, MA Hands-On Tiny House Building Workshop 2016!

SOLD OUT!!! (Sorry!) 

We have more workshops on the way (TBA soon)- AND a very intimate Vermont Tree House Building Workshop at an artist's compound/camp in Hardwick, VT- Tuesday August, 16th, 2016- Only SIX Students will be allowed, and its $135.00. If interested, email me at newenglandrockpress at gmail.com 

------------------------

OUR WORKSHOPS are FULLY HANDS-ON, TAUGHT BY A DUO WHO HAVE HOSTED AND DESIGNED FOR HGTV and THE DIY NETWORK, HAVE BEEN FEATURED IN THE NY TIMES, and are SO FUN and eclectic, that we have MANY people who have attended these workshops two, three, and even FOUR times!
--------------------------
FEBRUARY 5-6-7, 2016 BROCKTON, MA (25 min from Boston, MA)
Well, its pretty thrilling that a museum that I hold in high esteem, and one that is gorgeous, has asked us to host a Hands-On Tiny House Building Workshop! Naturally we said YES!

This time around, we have more space than we know what to do with- ALL indoors (don't worry, you won't freeze to death!), and we'll be tackling TWO, if not THREE, tiny cabin and shelter projects- all roping in the know-how you need to build a tiny house, shed, tree house, cabin, or funktified fort!

18+ only....

EVERY workshop we've done since 2010 has sold out, so don't delay. We're limiting this one to 40 or so students- this way everyone will really be able to take part, get their hands dirty, and ACTUALLY BUILD with our multiple projects.

Better yet, one of the cabins we build will also become an art display for their museum in an incredible secluded courtyard right within the building!

AND.... while we're still working on announcing our guest speakers, live demos, and more (don't worry, it'll be awesome!), We DO have the line up for Day One- Friday.

Ready.....

Day 1 (Friday) is the evening kick-off.....

TOUR a tiny house courtesy of Domenic Mangano from THE JAMAICA COTTAGE SHOP

A film screening of "We The Tiny People"

A book signing with myself for "Microshelters" my brand new book, followed by a QnA

A cocktail hour meet and greet with some of our builders/hosts

LIVE music by Annabel Lee

LIVE painting by Annmarie Sherrick, Carolyn Corrente, and Ellen Rolli!!!! 

A Bamboo building/joinery demo with ancient tools by Palo Coleman

And a talk from Tiny House Builder/Dweller Vera Struck (www.silverbullettinyhouse.com)- who built her tiny house at age 65! 

And that's JUST the evening of day one.....  We'll all head to a local pub for a QnA hang afterwards too.....

THEN DAYS TWO AND THREE.....
    BUILDING and design! LOTS! More guest speakers, and more surprises!!!!

We'll post more soon, but people have already asked to sign up, so we figured we'd at least get the preliminary info up, and a sign up link.....

COST- The 3 day workshop taught by multiple hosts and carpenters is $399
            The ratio of builders to attendees will be approx. 1:7, which is GREAT!

Refunds- FULL refund up until 6 weeks before the event
               Afterwards (after the 6 weeks-prior point), with notice, you'll be given a rain check for a
               future workshop
               And "No shows, no notice"- no nuthin'.

ANY questions, ask away!

-Derek "Deek" Diedricksen

  1. I'm really eager to sign up but I have a couple questions:

    - is lodging included in the price?
    - I don't currently have a car. Would it be possible to coordinate some rideshares from Boston?

    1. Hey Shawna, no lodging is not, but rideshares are usually worked out within the group.... it seems to work out come mass-email time, almost all the time..... even for this weekend's Vermont workshop- in the boondocks.....

  3. Id love to see the process i was in a pretty bad accident ( in a wheelchair at present) due to a drunk hit n run driver(later found out he was an off duty fireman in my town) . due to this i may end up having to build a tiny house out of pure need. Do you have a book or videos i may purchase ? Im hoping by the time i need it ill be able to walk at least.... I know nothing about carpentry how skilled do i have to actually be ? Thank you for your time . i hope i haven't taken up too much of your time with my questions. ...btw saw your plywood boat video loved it thank you.

  8. Is this a good option for beginner builders? Is it mostly design and workshops or do we get a lot of hands on building?

    1. Hey John- yes, especially as we have about 6-7 instructors/carpenters on hand teaching/approaching from all levels.....

  9. Hey, this isn't relative to this blog at all, but a while back, I saw your video for the 8x8 "Dart" half a-frame. I have been looking for more info, but haven't found plans anywhere online. I sketched out a model that's similar, but 8x16 (basically your design doubled). I want to take a swing at building this next year, but I just want to make sure I'm not stealing or plagiarizing or robbing intellectual property. rusty@salidasignworks.com Thanks a bunch!

    1. Hey, we do have a full plan-set for it..... your version, its doubled as an a-frame, or doubled in length? Are you selling it as a plan, or just building one? Thanks

  15. Hi there! I am interested in your workshop in MA. I am a novice planning on starting to build my tiny house on wheels this summer. Would this be an appropriate workshop to attend to learn those skills? Will it cover framing and roofing a tiny house on a trailer? I attended a Tumbleweed Workshop which was great, but did not include any hands on information. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, it will include those things- we'll have a ton of builders/designers on hand too, which also gives you a chance to ask questions galore, and/or to have them show you how things are done via demos.....

    2. Wonderful! I just signed up and am looking forward to the workshop. Thanks for the quick response.

    1. Sorry for the reply delay. Friday doesn't start until the evening- its the kick-off day with a few speakers, and intro, live music, a film, etc.... and a chance for the workshop attendees to hang with each other and the builders afterwards.....

  18. Hi! I signed up and paid and am super excited about it! I received a confirmation link but there's nothing attached in the link - no info for where it is etc. Can you email us all the info?

    Thank you! Radha

  19. Hi Derek,
    I was just wondering if this class will cover electrical, plumbing, ventilation, and insulation. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes we touch upon those things and you'll have a chance to pick the brain of many builders and designers on all that. There's only so much that can be worked into 2.5 days, but we do squeeze a heck of alot in..... and if its not covered, you have plenty of opportunities to bring it up in discussion and QnA's with the hosts and guest speakers..... but yeah, those things are part of it- less of electrical though, because that'd have to be a whole other 1 week workshop.....and thats something better left to the licensed pros to any novice builder anyway......

  20. Friday night of the workshop looks great. Can you provide the details of the rest of the weekend?

    1. Thanks Jay- we'll update the rest soon. Sat and Sunday is primarily live building (hands-on)- we'll work on two small cabin structures for the museum, while tying in tiny house know-how, skills, tricks, and more. We have about 10 instructors in all- from all over the US, and some dwellers/speakers as well...... Mike Bedsole from TinyHouseChattanooga, Ethan Waldman (VT)- author/builder/dweller, Jess and Dan Sullivan (RI)- Builders/Dwellers, Domenic Mangano (Jamaica Cottage Shop), Marty Skreulnas (CT architect), and many more....

    2. Thx for the info. I'll watch for the update.

      Since winter has finally arrived here in the Adirondacks I assume it has hit your area as well. So I'm wondering if the museum has large enough indoor space that the hands on portions will be in a heated space.

    3. Hey Jay- its ALL inside- HUGE space.... otherwise we wouldn't have done a winter workshop....

  21. Guys, I've wanted to attend one of these workshops for so long, but I don't have 399 plus lodging. Can a person attend to watch without participating, for a cheaper price?

    1. Hey, we understand, but we're one of the few workshops that LEGALLY do hands-on workshops with insurance to back them, so our overhead is HUGE! Anyway, EACH workshop we offer from 1-5 work study spots- where people can trade labor for admission, but the slots for those are beyond full. We will have more opportunities like that for TINY HOUSE SUMMER CAMP 4- in mid September, so keep and eye out of email us.....
