Introducing the Tiny House Project!
The Tiny House Building Workshop Series brings together communities of trades workers, architects, designers, inventors & artists to host a hands on construction workshop. The end product of the workshop is an inspiring off grid Tiny Community Center!
Let's Make Community Happen!
Let's raise awareness about tiny houses here in Vancouver! Be a part of this project by donating or participating in the Tiny House Building Workshop Series! Even $1 helps!
We also have some really cool acknowledgements/prizes including admission to the workshop for various income levels.
Do you like tiny houses? Do you want to learn basic construction skills?
Phase 1: The Tiny House Building Workshop Series pairs trades workers, architects & artists with workshop participants interested in learning how to source, identify and utilize salvaged materials and use construction skills gained in the program to create their own projects. For this, we have created a curriculum for a pilot workshop series workshop run in association with the Vancouver Community Laboratory. The workshop runs weekend mornings 9am-12pm July 5-Aug 31 and will cover everything from tool safety to flooring, framing, electrical, solar systems and finishing. The workshop will use the tiny house as a teaching tool and is designed to allow participants to gain hands on experience in various constructions methods.
Phase 2: Involves using the Tiny Community Center as a hub to inspire regular citizens take action and engage with their community as both participants and leaders. In order to offer accessible and creative course content, we are partnering with Trade School Vancouver to create a range of free and low cost workshops focused on a range of subjects from health, food and how to “DIY-ify” your life through home made projects of all disciplines.
If you would like to register for the workshop, don't hesitate, workshop spaces are limited!
