This course provides 2 hours of Series B training.

Building micro houses involves more than just making everything smaller. This course will look at the various factors that need to be considered when you are looking at constructing or repairing micro houses.

We will look at the advantages and disadvantages that micro houses have. This includes a much lower environmental impact and the lack of "standard" amenities.

We will cover the regulations that govern micro houses. This includes where they can be built and what it can be used for.

We will also cover the techniques for constructing micro houses and how these techniques differ from those used in constructing traditionally sized homes.

    A good overview of the Tiny House phenomenon. An added bonus of a glossary of terms that one might expect to run into when talking with clients was helpful.

    I have seen and heard some information on tiny homes in the past, this helped with some of the question regarding these homes. I enjoyed this course. Thanks

  • July 31st, 2018 -

    Working with tiny homes now.

  • June 25th, 2018 -

    Thank you for this class! it is very difficult to find continuing ed classes that are useful to me. I am a one-man operation, and most of the classes offered have nothing to do with the sort of work I do. Tiny houses have not been in my repertoire, but at least they are interesting!

  • June 14th, 2018 -

  • February 18th, 2018 -

    Seemed very informative for a new contractor/builder

  • February 15th, 2018 -

    I really liked that I got to read it and didn't get stuck having to watch a video.

  • January 24th, 2018 -

    Here's the future....

  • January 21st, 2018 -

    Great and condensed informational course

    Great into to tinys, appreciate the inclusion of info about shipping containers and upcycling materials

  • April 22nd, 2017 -

    Lots of great information provided in a short span of time. I appreciate the code references and examples of situations which will allow our company to propose our project in a more clear manner to zoning.

  • March 7th, 2017 -

    Great informative coures

  • October 21st, 2019 -

    I would have like some areas with audio.

  • July 14th, 2019 -

    great pictures helpful code information

  • June 4th, 2019 -

    Interesting topic. Valuable "thoughts" to consider

  • April 1st, 2019 -

    I think more discussion on regulation could be usefull. Like the fact that the county I live in does not allow people to reside in trailered homes, and has minimum room size requirements

  • March 20th, 2019 -

    Thank you!

  • February 6th, 2019 -

    base your questions on facts and not opinion.

  • December 19th, 2018 -

    More examples of onsite homes

  • October 30th, 2018 -

    One section was a little long before the question section and made retainment of information more difficult.

  • September 23rd, 2018 -

    Interesting class, i liked. It!

  • August 23rd, 2018 -

    Pretty nice course but some additional photos or video would be nice

  • June 14th, 2018 -

    would have liked to see some other media mixed into content.

  • May 14th, 2018 -

    We wish there was more video instead of all wriitten text and slides

  • January 16th, 2018 -

    Excellent info here, but could stand to have audio narration...

  • December 27th, 2017 -

    There was lots of useful information but it was a little more basic than I was hoping for.

  • April 11th, 2019 -

    have a voice attached to the words. to much reading

  • January 3rd, 2019 -

    would be nice in a video

  • August 4th, 2018 -

    Turn it into a video with questions.

  • March 7th, 2018 -

    Too much generic and "basic" information.

  • February 26th, 2018 -

    It was good information of you are not familiar with Tiny Homes. I was a little disappointed that it was just a "Reader". There is so much great video of tiny homes out there - especially in Oregon! and so many great examples of homes, I was hoping for a "Live/Video" course. I would encourage this in the future. It is such an important new branch of the industry.

  • January 22nd, 2018 -

    Pretty good information overall. I'd hoped to get more in depth into design styles and such, this seemed like an overview more than anything. I also expected more video and audio, but it turned out to be all text.

  • June 24th, 2018 -

    Course did not describe space saving construction techniques. Course was generally pictures and text and could use more videos and demos.

  • May 15th, 2017 -

    dont like the timed pages. i finished reading them and had to wait to move on

  • November 8th, 2019 -

    should have been a follow along reading
