JUST Announced! NC Tiny House Building 101 Class- Pink Hill, NC

'Tis true!
While Deek Diedricksen is the keynote speaker for the Tiny House NC Street Festival in Pink Hill, NC on April 27th-29th, 2018, he'll also be doing a side HANDS-ON building/tiny house 101 workshop on Saturday, April 28th. 

About the host: Derek "Deek" Diedricksen was the Host/designer/builder for the HGTV series "Tiny House Builders", the host of HGTV's "Extreme Small Spaces", and has built and designed for the DIY Network, The History Channel, The NY Times, and beyond. He is the author of four tiny house-related books, including the best seller "Microshelters" (Storey Press).

Note: We're limiting this to only 35 students!

-Live framing and building- ACTUALLY BUILD WITH US! 
We'll cover headers, rafters, building and squaring your base, trailers vs. foundations, insulation...
-Tricks of the trade- time and money saving tips we use in the field
-Materials and tool selection
-An open QnA session
-Talks on "How to Build with Less- FOR LESS"
-"What NOT to do in your tiny house build/design (the frequent mistakes we see!)
-And MUCH more

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY IF YOU WANT TO LEARN THE ROPES- and not by just seeing and hearing, but by DOING. 

Its 4.5 hour course- with a guest speaker/demo TBA, and led by myself.
It will take place SATURDAY, April 28th- 9:30am to 2pm
Bring a lunch and snacks, sunscreen, and work clothes (we do have a covered spot to work in case of rain).
Tools- when you sign up, much closer to the date of the workshop, an instructive email will be sent mentioning items you should bring IF you have them- nothing fancy, don't worry (hammer, goggle, gloves, etc).

We're keeping this fairly small too, as we don't want it to be a giant cattle call where no one gets to see, do, or ask. We want you right in the thick of things!

Cost: $75 
-The WORKSHOP (per person)
-A full-weekend pass to the festival ($15 value)
-Deek's new framing plan set for "The Dart" cabin ($35 value)

"The Dart" plans can also be purchased by those who can't attend the workshop- HERE....

A deposit of $25 is required to secure the spot (non-refundable (so PLEASE make sure your calendar is in order- BUT transferable to ANY other course of ours)).
