What Others Are Saying

Tiny House Workshop Group
I want to thank you and Dan for such an incredible weekend of laughter and learning. I can't believe that we got so much information in the span of two days. It was nothing short of amazing. We were all so blown away by Dan's style of teaching. He's got a gift of cutting information down into bite-sized pieces that we could all take in and then apply those to the bigger picture. It's like the question I ask my kids when we have a big project, "How do we eat an entire elephant?" And they roll their eyes and say, "One bite at a time." I now feel I can "eat the entire elephant" of building a tiny house! - Monique C - Washington DC
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated the workshop this past weekend. I came with doubts about building a house, but Dan's knowledge, tidbits, and expertise eliminated all the doubt. I very much appreciated that his whole workshop was not about selling his product or website, but actually helping us learn the basics of building, plumbing, electrical, tools, etc. I now have confidence I can do this! So THANK YOU!!!! - Ginger L - Asheville
I have been to a LOT of learning type workshop weekends, and I have to say that this workshop was probably the most "Bang for the Buck" workshop, that I have EVER had the pleasure to attend. Dan is amazing, and his depth of knowledge was only exceeded by the caring (and FUN) way that he was able to deliver his wealth of information to us. There were a bunch of "Aha moments" as people from all walks of life, with varying reasons and goals, got to actually DO the things that will need to be done in order to build a Tiny House of their own. - Rick F - Nasheville
I've never met people at "that level of hospitality" before. It is really quite inspiring. You all are doing a fantastic job. - Michelle - Atlanta
Dan, you did a magnificent job!! I left so inspired that I can hardly think of anything besides tiny houses. - Wanda S - Florida
Please thank Dan for the incredible workshop!!! I am so amazed at the material he presented to us and in such a digestible way! I learned so much and the hands-on sessions really helped me feel more comfortable and confident. Dan is an excellent teacher and mentor! Thank you! - Sonia B - Miami
I feel completely ready to build a house on my own - Timothy E - Atlanta
Thank you, Dan for a great workshop in Atlanta! - Kathy D - Atlanta
I know this was not your primary reason for the workshop but thank you so much for building my confidence to finally remove a door in my kitchen this past week and put in a window so that I can rearrange the placement of my fridge and for better workflow. Besides my neighbor holding the plywood sheathing to screw in place I can honestly say I did it myself. I highly recommend your workshop for this purpose alone (and so many other reasons). Thanks again - Sanne
I signed up for your workshop after completing a different 2-week tiny house workshop. I wasn't expecting to learn much more, I really just wanted to get as much experience and confidence as possible before starting my own build. To my surprise, I learned more and got more hands-on experience in your 2-day workshop than I did in the other 2 weeks. It completely blew my mind! Your energy, knowledge, and style of teaching were great! Thanks for everything. - Sarah H
