As summer is winding down I have to admit that despite the birthday celebrations, the mini-vacations, the building of my tiny office, etc, perhaps the most exciting part was the launch and first term of our Small Home. Big Life. e-Cours(E). What a very cool month of lessons.
After nearly three months of plotting, planning, writing, editing, re-writing, and planning some more, we launched of our first e-Cours(E) on June 23.
Called “Small Home. Big Life.” the four-week, self-guided course is designed to carry a person through the beginning stages of building a tiny house from the dreaming phase all the way through the drying in of a tiny house. The course became so much more though infusing our personal experiences with detailed instructions, creative prompts, guest artists, and multi-media, that served to inspire and educate.
To quote Teresa, a member of the first term class,
I just finished Andrew’s online class and hated for it to be over. He packed so much information in four weeks. He not only went through the construction process but brought up many topics that caused the learner to explore tiny home living and make well informed decisions. He was always accessible if you had a question either off or on topic. I highly recommend this class.
In addition to daily instruction each student will receive a full-course PDF and exclusive discounts and giveaways at the end of the course.
NOTE: This course does not cover electrical work, plumbing, interior design, or code/regulation specs.
For some time it has bothered me that while there are a plethora of wonderful tiny house workshops out there including those sponsored by Deek and Relaxshacks, Tiny House Talk and Dan Louche, and the Tumbleweed gang, they all required a significant investment including admission fee, travel, time off, etc. I longed for an offering that would allow the dream/builder/designer to stay at home, spend a minimum amount of money, yet learn a significant amount.
The next course begins Monday September 2, 2013 and ends Sunday September 29, 2013. But since it is self-paced you can take as little time as you want on a specific lesson or as much time. If you miss a day or simply want to take a break, that is okay.
Small Home. Big Life. is opened to any one that dreams of a tiny house and just isn’t sure where to begin, how to begin, what to expect, etc. If you have a computer (or similar device), Interwebs access, and a love for tiny houses, then you are eligible.
The cost for the four-week course and all the materials involved is only $90 per person. Payable through PayPal you can register and pay tuition on this page.
