It's official!! I'm SUPER EXCITED to be a speaker at Derek Diedricksen's tiny house design/build weekend workshop this summer. Deek just announced the workshop last week, and there are very few spots open, so sign up fast!! It's going to be called "Tiny House Summer Camp", and it's taking place the weekend of July 6-9 at Derek's home-built cabin in Vermont. The weekend will be full of tiny house tours, solar cooking, camping out, tiny house building. designing, idea swapping, and geeking out about all things tiny. As a participant you get to sleep in a cabin, a treehouse, a tiny house, or something else cool that will be at the workshop (depending on what state The COMET is in, I might be able to accommodate a few campers!) The COMET will be coming with me to the workshop, and I'm going to be showing it off (mid-construction) and bringing along lots of interesting sustainable building materials and other things. I'll be showing off my free and recycled finds that will be going into The COMET, explaining why vintage campers make great tiny houses, talking about how to save $$ in your tiny house by having an entirely DC photovoltaic solar electric system like The COMET, and more!
Other speakers at the workshop include WILLIAM ROCKHILL of Bear Creek Carpentry, who builds Tiny Houses for Tumbleweed, TRISTAN & LIBBY and their WHITTLED DOWN CARAVAN (an amazing vardo/caravan they towed from New Mexico to Massachusetts with a little sedan!), Derek's own HICKSHAW CABIN, and more!
