Seattle-area Workshop! --Attention All Tree House/Tiny House Fans!

     So, among 5000 other things we're up to (a new book via Storey Press, a Los Angeles Tiny House Build in a Museum, a Tree house youtube show, and more), we're announcing a very intimate Tree House Workshop (FULLY HANDS-ON), which will parallel MANY facets of TINY HOUSE BUILDING and 101 framing and carpentry. Its a culmination of both worlds.
-May 20th and the 21st-
Monroe Washington (50 miles outside Seattle- this place is GORGEOUS!!!)

So many of the needed skills to build both tree houses and tiny houses are similar, so this workshop is  a great opportunity for both interest groups to learn, and actually build! 

We're keeping it intentionally small too. This isn't a cattle call in a hotel ballroom, we'll be building 
both outdoors on the site, and in a 3000 square foot barn, and you'll see this from start to completion.


LIMITED to 15 Students (with THREE hosts- ALL from the HGTV series "Tiny House Builders")
That's a host/teacher for every five students- a GREAT ratio!
Hosts are Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, Dustin Diedricksen, and the one simply known as "Shippey"- the DIY pirate of the trees.... 

These aren't wimpy 9-3:30 workshops with two hour lunch breaks and two hours built in for reflection and note-taking, we're all BUILDING together. Each day runs from 10am to 8pm

It'll be FUN! We have MANY students who have signed up for our workshops three, four, even FIVE times, as each project is always very different. People keep coming back, so we're doing something right! 

You'll get to see/tour TWO tiny DIY gypsy wagons and an incredible dome structure on the land- one where we'll hold some of our talks, meetings, and late-night hang outs! 

THIS place! And its HUGE!!!

The hosts have been building and designing for well over a decade, and have had their works and designs featured in MANY books, magazine, newspapers, and huge design blogs.

You'll get to see a project to completion in this weekend and get to leave with some great bragging rights photos of what YOU helped build over the weekend!

Its for ALL skill levels- we'll walk you through everything!

You are welcome to camp on the premises for the night- no extra charge!

We'll have a pig-out pizza party/hang the first night so that you don't have to worry about leaving for meals that first night. (all other meals are on your own)
