In addition to all of the professional builders, DIY builders, vendors, and speakers, the Colorado Tiny House Festival is pleased to also bring you these educational workshops:
TM Steel Framing Systems, Presented by Trailer Made Custom Trailers
Learn more about the new steel framing system for tiny houses that Trailer Made has just rolled out. They will demonstrate just how easy it is to erect the steel framing kits that have been generated from computer controlled fabrication and checked by engineers. If you can put together IKEA furniture, you can also assemble these kits! They will even sell you the best tiny house trailer in the industry to compliment one of the easiest, strongest, lightest framing systems on the market.

Go Tiny co-founder, Thom Stanton, is a long-time advocate of “legitimizing and legalizing” movable tiny houses as code compliant dwellings and permissible full-time residences.
A small space visionary, 11th generation builder, and tiny house how-to educator, Thom and his wife Midge live on the road as “full-timers” helping DIY builders plan and prepare to Go Tiny. To help further formalize the tiny house industry and foster its intentional growth, the Stantons support tiny house construction companies with home planning and consulting services. They also work with state housing and community development administrators and municipal zoning and building officials to help expand access to tiny house communities.
Thom brings a humorous, energetic, and enabling open-source approach to his speaking engagements, builder coaching sessions, and 1-on-1 planning consultations, working hard to provide insightful how-to information that enables practical can-do decisionmaking.
Thom is eager to share his knowledge, experience, and options to help you “go tiny!”
Due to our extremely packed speaker schedule, we didn’t have enough time for the Stantons to fulfill their full presentation on the main stage, so immediately following their talk on stage, follow them over to their RV for a boatload more of tiny house information!!
Location: Stanton RV
Times: Saturday 3pm-4pm
