Yes, its true- we ARE heading down to Alabama (the town of New Market) to host a small, intimate, hands-on tree house building workshop- where we'll also cover many things "tiny house"- with live framing demos, YOU actually building, discussion sessions, and more! Its a fun weekend, a great chance to network, and you'll have PLENTY of time to ask questions one on one (so come armed with tons of 'em!). 

When: Saturday May 14th and Sunday May 15th

(THERE IS ALSO a separate-ticket movie screening event this weekend too (Sat night)- with a QnA from the directors and builders (link below)

TWO full days or fun projects, learning, actually building a tree house, learning to frame, and more. 

Limited to 16 students only. 18+ 

Hosted by Derek "Deek" Diedricksen (former HGTV and DIY Network host and designer and author of the bestseller "Microshelters" and "Micro Living"). Deek has been building tiny houses, cabins, and tree houses for three decades now. 

We taught cub scouts(!) to build this little hobby cabin/guest shack! So yes, YOU can do it!

You will be building alongside these two all weekend at LEIGH ACRES! A super funky and fun event space where you'll see everything from converted horse trailers (into a rental cabin), to a vintage caboose and more. This place is loaded with cool art too!
