Building a Tiny House is presented by Jim Juczak of Woodhenge Self Reliance Campus in Adams Center, NY (near Watertown.) 

This class will show you how to "do it yourself" for your tiny kingdom!  We start with a base frame and roof already in place and discuss both design and buidling concepts, with full explanation provided.  We will do plenty of hands on work, we'll finish it in and focus on interior work as well.

Topics that will be covered include:

DOT regulations
Building codes
Basic wood framing 
Finish carpentry
Solar electric power
Basic electrical wiring: AC and DC
Basic plumbing supply and drains
Composting toilets
Scrounging supplies
Finding land
...and your questions!

Jim Juczak is a former shop teacher of 25 years, among many other things. Jim and his wife, Krista and their family live at Woodhenge, a 55-acre intentional community with several other families they have invited to live there.  Writing (both articles and books), lecturing on a wide variety of self reliance topics, and inventing are amongst the things he does. He also consults on off-grid energy system design and specializes in deep-well solar pumps. His first book, The High Art and Subtle Science of Scrounging, has been in print since 2008. His second book, Water Supply Systems for the Homesteader, became available in 2011.
