This was a great overview to the concepts and considerations when building a tiny house. I especially appreciate that it gave examples and resources I will further research.

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....

July 12th, 2017
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

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
