Deek's Workshop- TWO tree houses in THREE DAYS.... LIVE BUILDS!

Building Tree Houses, at an artist's camp, with BAD-ASS professional artists, while camping, and more! Can't wait! Its a mini workshop we're doing, and we're only taking on SEVEN students. Its 3 days of building with TWO builds, one at the artist camp, another at my 10 acre camp.... LOTS of shelters, tree houses, and cabins to tour as well! 

....and yes, you'll have a chance to ask a zillion questions about tiny houses, design, and whatever else you want to know!

The three day event is $260.00- less than most any other workshop, and with a heck of a lot more individual attention- never mind that its fully hands-on with lots of actual building!

Day 1- 9am start. Tool use, game plan talk, site prep, framing demonstration, the Do's and Don'ts of tree house construction vs. tiny house design, and THE ACTUAL BUILD. Ends 9pm

Day 2- finish up what we don't complete on day one, and then head 25 min north to Deek's 10 acre camp to check out his shelters, tree houses, cabins, and more.....  followed by ANOTHER small live build, campfire discussions, and a tour of a small off-grid log cabin in the woods. (10 am to 9pm)

Day 3- Building wrap-up....... and a collective art/sculpture project in the woods..... (10 am to 4:30 pm)

18+ only. And you're welcome to show, and come and go, and you please.
