Reviews

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
— Shelly Smith
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
