"I see tiny houses as a powerful tool; once a person has a good understanding of how homes are constructed as well as a command on the use of the tools required, they not only have a valuable job skill-set, but also a pathway to creating one's own affordable housing solution." - Zack Giffin

I have been to two workshops and have learned so much. The camaraderie at these workshops reminds me so much of my military days. The fact that with each build we have one less veteran off the street makes it that much better.
— N. Chapa, San Antonio & Oklahoma Workshop Attendee
I did a build in Oklahoma just recently with Zack and it absolutely rocked. I learned bunches and all for a good cause. You’ll have fun while you learn and while you help out a veteran!!
— A. Hickey, Oklahoma Workshop Attendee
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 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 like building stuff and helping fellow veterans and I got to do that and it was a lot of fun.
— — C. Galusha, San Antonio 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.
