Tiny house design offers eco-friendly solutions to housing shortages and alternative spaces for your home, office, art studio, yoga studio, popup shop or retail store. Thursdays in June, join Peckham Architecture founder Nick Peckham for a course on tiny house design and green building through the University of Missouri Extension and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in Columbia, Missouri.

Learn Deep Green Building Tips from an Expert

Nick will cover the design of “small” houses (under 800 square feet) as well as “tiny” houses (set on wheels and up to 400 square feet). He will also teach about programming, construction and regulation of tiny houses and small dwellings. In just four sessions, you’ll learn the logistics and economics of considering energy savings, water conservation, healthy interiors, recycled materials, sustainability and accessibility in a small dwelling or tiny house design.

If you’ve followed Peckham Architecture’s Green Building Series, you’ve likely noticed Nick’s passion for sharing the green building techniques he’s learned over more than 40 years as a deep green architect. Nick learned from the finest, including mentor and world-renowned inventor and visionary Buckminster Fuller. His deep green design expertise and relentless pursuit of a sustainable future are sure to educate and inspire you.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offers courses geared toward adults over 50. However, Nick’s vision and the topic of tiny house design speak to people of all ages. We strongly encourage any interested adult to attend. Please join us!
