Here is what fellow workshop attendees are saying…

Natalie Steeneken says…

Thank you both from the bottom of my heart for the overwhelmingly inclusive, welcoming atmosphere you both fostered this weekend at the LA Tiny House workshop. I’ve truly never felt more comfortable in a room full of unfamiliar faces. I left the workshop feeling empowered, up to my ears with information, and most importantly, I felt genuinely happy. This weekend was riddled with self-doubt but with the newfound knowledge, I felt a growing sense of power, power that could help me overcome obstacles that I once saw to be a roadblock. The passion and extensive knowledge that you two shared with us all has helped guide me past the initial doubt. 

Becky Hessick says…

GO TO THIS WORKSHOP! We attended in St. Louis, and it was fabulous! Andrew knows EVERYTHING about building, and Gabriella is the keeper of details on anything you can think to ask. And, they’re great fun! GO! 

Randall and Pat Baird say…

Dear Gabriella and Andrew, What a “package” you two are! If your workshop doesn’t get people thinking about the potential of tiny living, nothing can! Thanks so much for your meticulously planned and exuberantly presented workshop. We enjoyed it thoroughly. 

Joshua Engberg from TinyHouseBasics.com says…

The Tiny House Build workshop was hands down the best workshop I have attended. This is the workshop to attend to learn from a real and extremely experienced builder on how to properly build a tiny house. From the ground up to the finishing work Andrew and Gabriella guide you in a highly informational and relaxed environment. You can’t beat the value either with all the goodies they throw in! 

Staci Greenberg, Interior And Design, LLC says…

Best weekend ever! I learned even more about what goes into building a Tiny House and all the issues and positives. I met some fabulous people! Thank you Andrew and Gabriella…keep on doing what you’re doing! 

Ken Lim says…

I’ve been encouraged to “keep living tiny, in a big world.”  The best part of the workshop was Sunday afternoon when you incorporated the spiritual, and personal sides of living tiny. Thanks for your philosophy, activism, and of course all the jokes!  (Portland, OR 2016)

Doss Palmer says…

I have you to thank for the monumental shift in my life and honestly attending your workshop has been the best decision I’ve ever made to better myself.
