What Others Are Saying

Tiny House Workshop Group
Thank you, Dan for a great workshop in Atlanta! - Kathy D
I've never met people at "that level of hospitality" before. It is really quite inspiring. You all are doing a fantastic job. - Michelle
Dan, you did a magnificent job!! I left so inspired that I can hardly think of anything besides tiny houses. - Wanda S
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
I feel completely ready to build a house on my own - Timothy E
