Zack Giffin, Co-host of Tiny House Nation has teamed up with Operation Tiny Home to Teach Tiny Home Building Workshops to Veterans

WORKSHOP IS FREE FOR ALL VETERANS AND ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY

"I see tiny houses as a powerful tool to teach home construction job skills.  When constructing a tiny home we use all the same tools, and go through all the same steps as constructing a large home, only the project is expedited into a much shorter time frame. Participants witness how each step affects the next, and hopefully gain an understanding of the entire building process.  For more experienced builders there is always opportunity to partake in the aspects that you have less experience with as well as the ever-present challenges with space, requiring creative solutions.  Once a person has a good understanding of how homes are constructed and a command on the use of the tools required, they possess a valuable job skill set, and have created a pathway to one's own sustainable housing solution." - Zack Giffin

Course Overview 

Long time home builder and tiny house specialist, Zack Giffin, is partnering with local professionals to teach Veterans basic carpentry skills and building techniques.  Workshops teach a basic understanding of the entire construction process from the foundation to the finishing trim. Participants have the opportunity to get hands-on experience and become proficient with all tools common in home construction. Veterans learn about different types of building materials, the order of operation, and how each step effects the next, all the way through the project.  We cover advanced skills such as reading and comprehending blueprints, foundation preparation, framing layout, structural considerations, understanding basic electrical, plumbing applications, and general tiny home design concepts.

Workshops are free for all Veterans.  All experience levels are welcome. Tools will be provided by Milwaukee Tool, USA.
