Already, Washington, D.C. is known for being a fairly short city, but there are homes in the District that are not just small, but itty bitty. For those interested in taking a shot at building or living in a tiny home, members of the Tiny House Collaborative are hosting a workshop with hands-on activities, tours, and a Q&A.

Some of the topics that will be discussed at the event include budget and construction of building a tiny home, framing and basic building techniques, and layout considerations and design tricks.

The two-day event will be held on March 18 and 19 at the Catholic University of America. For a single person, the cost of the event is $399. For two people, it costs $700.

The Tiny House Collaborative is an affiliation of designers, educators, and community advocates in the U.S. that aim to provide resources to others who are interested in living small. The Collaborative also offers one-on-one consulting and sells tiny house plans and guides.
