Wild Abundance offers free online class on tiny houses

Press release from Wild Abundance:

BARNARDSVILLE, NC (August 9, 2021) – Are you excited to shrink your environmental footprint and your budget? Building your own tiny house can be a creative, exciting, and empowering way to do both.

Building a tiny home can mean saving money on housing if you plan well and source smart. But the truth is, any building project can have a huge price tag, especially with the highly unstable costs of lumber and other building materials. Wild Abundance has created a free class – Top 10 Ways to Save Money When Building a Tiny House – to help you get the most out of your tiny (or not-so-tiny) house building adventure, for the least amount of money.

Wild Abundance’s top ways to save money when building a tiny house run the gamut, from sourcing materials, to leveraging community support, to planning and designing for lower costs. A sampling of some of the subjects covered in the online class include: which materials to salvage and which are best bought new; which tools to buy and which to borrow or rent; and time = money, labor sucks and how to avoid them.

A panel of seasoned tiny house builders – including Natalie Bogwalker, Nadi Moon, and Keenan Phillips – provide their insights in this free online class. These instructors don’t just have experience building tiny, they all live in tiny (or not-so-tiny) homes that they’ve built for themselves. Throughout the class, you’ll get a chance to learn from their experiences. Plus, you’ll hear anecdotes and examples from real-life tiny house building projects that will ground and personalize everything you learn.

When you build your own tiny house, using your own two hands, you have control over the design and materials. It’s a powerful gateway into homeownership and a great way to reduce your ecological impact and engage your imagination, compared to conventional housing.
