An innovative “tiny home building” education series geared toward those interested in designing, building and living in alternative small dwellings, begins January 7, 2017 on Gabriola Island. The series is being run by local organizers and has drawn experts from Edmonton, Seattle, Thetis and Vancouver Island, as well as local builders who will bring their knowledge of best practices and the latest technology in building smaller, more efficient and eco-friendly homes to the Gulf Islands.
The series was initiated in response to the social demand for housing alternatives, particularly affordable, environmentally-responsible dwellings with small ecological footprints. “The Gulf Islands are an ideal place to explore alternative home building solutions,” says event organizer Tobi Elliott, president of LeftHand Media Co-op and a local documentary filmmaker.
The education series will be held over two weekends, January 7-8 and February 18-19 at the Gabriola Island performance space, The Centre. Cost is $150 for the first weekend, $250 for the second and $325 for both before Dec 31.
The series is offered through The Grove Woodworking School and has been enthusiastically endorsed by the Local Trust Council on Gabriola. Other local sponsors are LeftHand Media Co-op, Arbutus Building Supplies and New Society Publishing.
