Learn to live small

by: COURTESY OF PAD - Tiny House workshop. Want to shrink your carbon footprint, cut your cost of living and simplify your live?

Portland Alternative Dwellings is offering a Tiny House Basic Workshop on July 20 and 21.

The course will provide design and building principles for houses built on wheels, including how to anchor a stick-built structure to a trailer, moisture controls and ventilation, electrical, gas and water systems and understanding city codes.

After a day and a half in the classroom, participants will spend a half-day on a Tiny House Tour.

The class is taught by Dee Williams and other tiny house experts.
