Tiny houses a big project

Rouck Bros. Log Homes will hold a two-day workshop on tiny homes at its craft mill

A Lumby area business is introducing local residents to the concept of tiny houses.

Rouck Bros. Log Homes will hold a two-day workshop on tiny homes at its craft mill Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

“The workshops are packed with extensive information and hands-on, in-shop experience, addressing how to create a highly insulated wall in just one step,” said Kevin Rouck, with the company.

“We teach you how to assemble your own energy-efficient tiny home or small footprint home with comprehensive, detailed information. This course is perfect for those interested in eco and sustainable living while building their next cabin, studio or home. Some construction experience is helpful for this course, but not at all necessary.”

Rouck started building log homes in 1980.

For the past three years, he has initiated a public interest in smaller, more economical and environmentally friendly designs.
