Operation Tiny Home is thrilled to be partnering with the Lummi Stepping Stones and Wells Fargo to host a tiny home building workshop at Bellingham Millwork Supply to support the launch of the Eagle Haven Tiny Home Village.

As a workshop participant, you will have the opportunity to ‘dry-in’ a tiny home while learning from tiny house specialist and A&E TV Series Tiny House Nation Co-Host, Zack Giffin. Our 3-day workshop will provide hands-on training of the basic tiny home construction process, from the foundation to the finishing trim. You will have the opportunity to become proficient with many of the tools common in home construction, learn about different types of building materials, the order of operation, and how each step affects the next, all the way through the project. We will cover skills such as reading and comprehending blueprints, foundation preparation, framing, window & door installation, exterior siding & trim and the unique Shou Sugi Ban art of preserving and finishing wood through charing with fire.

We believe building & construction doesn't have to be intimidating and is a craft and process that is accessible to anyone interested in learning. As a participant, you will gain new knowledge and increase confidence in a relaxed and supportive environment. Expect to enjoy yourself, make new friends, and leave feeling inspired by what you've learned!

This workshop is FREE for Lummi Tribal Members! Registration opens March 25, 2019. Space is limited.

Eagle Haven Tiny Home Village

Eagle Haven is a Lummi Stepping Stones 501(c)(3) nonprofit program that aims to provide affordable housing and the opportunity of self-sufficiency on the Lummi Nation Reservation for tribal members struggling with housing instability.

The Eagle Haven Tiny Home Village project is located on the Lummi Nation Reservation in Washington State as part of a comprehensive housing solution to support the homeless, displaced and disadvantaged Lummi Tribal members in need of support.

Eligibility requirements for residency include a background check, monthly rental contribution, an agreement to abide by tenant rules and responsibilities, and a commitment to drug and alcohol free living.

Here's what some of our past workshop participants have to say about their experience.

This opportunity to experience personal growth while helping others on a larger scale has been a blessing!
— S. Blair, Sacramento, CA Workshop
Learned a lot, met a great group of people, and did something that will make a difference in someone’s life. We did something beautiful for a person that deserves to know that there are people who care and love them. So rewarding.
— R. Cranely, 2017 Racine Workshop
Operation Tiny Home is a class act that exceeded all my expectations. David and I can’t say enough good things. We are still talking about it.
— — C. Re-Fowlkes, San Antonio Workshop Attendee
The team handled everything professionally and kept us all on track. Absolutely awesome. Can’t wait for the next one.
— C. Williams, Sacramento, CA Workshop
This workshop was a game changer for me. I feel like I got flipped upside down and turned inside out. The Operation Tiny Home team was absolutely incredible. They all took the time to teach me, grow me, challenge me, feed me, and love me.
— M. Sheehan, Racine, WI Workshop
I learned so much in such a short time frame. I was able to participate at my own pace and there was always a wide variety of areas to keep everyone interested. I was able to always get all of my answers to any questions. I was a novice in so many ways but being in an environment where you felt welcomed and everybody was interested in giving all they had was phenomenal. My body gave out before I wanted it too. Even with all the hard work the atmosphere created was infectious and you did not want to leave at the end of each day! This was better than any vacation we have ever taken!
— G. Lewis, Arlington, TX Workshop
The joy I received and the friendships I made were beyond my expectation!
— E. Toney, Oklahoma Workshop Attendee
The pace of the workshop was great for instructional. The professionals were clear and concise with instruction blocks, and were supportive while we learned.
— T. Cupid, Orlando Workshop Attendee
Zack took his time to instruct newcomers and made everybody feel welcome. He explained the steps necessary to accomplish the build and I enjoyed seeing from the beginning how a house comes together.
— I. Cotto, Orlando Workshop Attendee
I did an Operation Tiny Home workshop with Zack in WI. You will learn something. He’s the real deal.
— R. LaHue, Racine Workshop Attendee
I enjoyed meeting and interacting with everyone. Neither Zack nor other experts ever made me feel “stupid” or acted impatient with questions. This was truly an experience to remember.
