RelaxShacks Original Tiny House Summer Camp 2022 – VT

September 23 - September 25

Relax Shacks Tiny House Summer Camp

THE ORIGINAL Tiny House Campout Workshops ARE BACK!

Hosted by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen (former HGTV host and author of the bestseller “Microliving”)

SEPTEMBER 23-25th (FRI-SUN)- and you’re welcome to camp out until Monday too (as we know some of you travel from far away). If you miss Friday, we’ll get you caught up- don’t worry!

Hosted by Deek and Dustin Diedricksen (hosts of HGTV’s “Tiny House Builders”)

Learn Tiny House Building with US! (and a TON more!!!!)

Not just watching, not a mere slideshow, YOU will be cutting, sawing hammering, and CREATING!!

We’ll all be building, actually BUILDING together! Touring cabins, Live Demos, Guest Speakers, and more!

Things covered- Framing, tool use, efficiency in design/materials (IMPORTANT with the high cost of materials these days!), roofing, alternative building techniques (pros and cons), what NOT to do in your tiny house design (that alone will save you time, headache, and heartache), tiny house layouts, TOUR tiny builds on site, demos on shingling, Japanese techniques, window installation and repair, and then some…

Tiny House Workshop at our TEN ACRE spread near Orleans, VT. Its fully off-grid- but fully fun (so don’t let that scare you!)
We’ve made it so much more than just a hands-on tiny house workshop too- its basically become a DIY Summer Camp for adults. We’ll explain shortly… We want to keep it smaller and more intimate this year too (this way we can all keep safe, keep our distance (its all outdoors too)).
