With the roll out of Tiny House Craftsman (see the post here) we are also adding to the line up our Tiny Workshops! You might have noticed a new link on our menu – “Events” – which will bring you to where you can sign up for them. Our online tiny workshops are a quick way for you to learn everything you need to know about tiny houses, how to build, what the life is like, and much more!
Each session is 30 minutes long on a specific topic and you can get all your questions answered. Our first session will be an intro to tiny houses where you can get a lot of your burning questions answered. Followed up by that we’ll get down to the nitty gritty and focus on particular topics.
Let me know in the comments if there are other times/days that people want, if we have enough I can add a session!

Macy Miller from Minimotives.com and I have teamed up in an effort to provide a venue for monthly live discussions about tiny houses, all are encouraged to log in! Please join us!
The first chat will be:
Monday, November 12th, 2012
8pm-9pm Eastern Time (5pm-6pm West Coast)
Mark your calendar!
Tiny House Chat is a space for Tiny House enthusiasts to come together and share ideas and stories. The concept of this is to be for the Tiny House community and facilitated by the community. We hope that this platform will achieve the following:
- Develop lasting connections among the Tiny House community.
- Strengthen and expand the community.
- Foster the sharing of ideas.
- Provide a resource for the various stages of a tiny house, from the ideas stage to the ‘is-this-working-right’ stage.
- Have a lot of fun and get to know each other better!!
This will be an open forum, all questions and comments are encouraged. For our first chat we have guest bloggers Laura LaVoie from 120SquareFeet.com, Christopher and Malissa Tack from ChrisAndMalissa.com, Ryan Mitchell of TheTinyLife.com and Macy Miller of MiniMotives.com on video and voice. Anyone who is interested will be able to log in and chat via text! More information for how to log in will come as we approach our Chat Day, for the basics on how to log in please view THIS document.
