Jessie's Tiny House Build: one really fun week at Agari Permaculture Farm, near Melbourne, Australia in November 2015. Here's a neat article about the build by our friend, Kate: http://www.thecitizen.org.au/storyboard/tiny-house-big-dream-how-community-banded-together-beat-housing-crunch

We run tiny house design workshops and hands-on building workshops in North America, Australia and New Zealand. Based out of Vancouver, Canada, we offer evening, two-day, one-week or two-week hands on building workshops at your venue or ours. Please email workshops@tinyhealthyhomes.com or sign up above for our updates. 


The 3 day weekend hands on course was a blast. I found confidence in using power tools and learnt more about tiny house design and building than 5 years of Youtube

Thank you Ben for an amazing workshop. Our new community of Tiny house friends was an unexpected highlight. You helped me make my Tiny house dream more achievable.
— Clair Rogers
Working alongside Ben is like watching a master tradesman at work, his knowledge is mindblowing but the best part is that he’s a natural born teacher that’s passionate about sharing his knowledge. He has a near magical ability to bring out the inner builder in people, making natural building an incredibly fun journey all the while showing how community and sustainability is at the heart of the tiny house and natural building movement. Recommend isn’t the word, I urge you to take any opportunity to work with Ben, you’ll be forever changed and be connected with a community of like minded folks that’ll become friends for life.
— Avis Mulhall

We host natural building and tiny house design build workshops to inspire and empower people to build with confidence. At workshops, we teach and learn with our head, heart and hands. Students and crew on each and every course have been inspiring change-makers from all over the world. Workshops offer all participants the chance to experience learning, living, and working in a collaborative group environment that is rooted in permaculture principles.
