Earthbag Tiny House Workshop

On sale for $400 (60% off) until the end of May! 

It’s no secret that the tiny house craze is sweeping the nation. People, sick of bloated McMansion living, are rebelling and purposefully living small. Conventional stick-built tiny homes can get quite costly but, using earthbags, we can build one much stronger and at a fraction of the cost (the tiny house we built at our 2019 workshop cost less than $1800!).

We are pleased to be offering this natural building workshop during the peak of leaf season in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains on October 11th – 16th, one hour north of Asheville, NC. During this workshop, participants will get hands-on experience with many aspects of earthbag building. We will also discuss house design, site selection, roof and foundation types, and much, much more! Signing up for this workshop entitles the participant to spend as much time as they would like on the project but no refunds will be given for those who leave early.

Primitive camping is available for free on site. Morning coffee and lunch will be served daily. The hours of the workshop will be from 10am to 5pm on each day, with an hour-long break for lunch.
