Locals can learn more about the Tiny House movement through participation in the four-weekend La Vie Simple workshop in Arnaudville that begins in February. But people must first sign up and Jacqui Cochran with the NUNU Arts and Culture Collective, which is hosting the workshop, said only a limited number of applicants will be accepted. “The workshop participation is limited to 12 students. Register now to assure your place. Once all weekends are spoken for – registration closes,” Cochran said.

The cost for the program is $350 for the full eight days, which includes lunch, snacks, refreshments and education materials.
“This eight-day workshop is being offered at a 78 percent saving due to NUNU’s non-profit status and because of materials cost funding through sponsors Winifred and Kevin Reilly,” Cochran said.

During the four-weekend program, participants will learn about numerous environmentally friendly building techniques while constructing the first of two planned Tiny Houses for use in an international artist-in-residence exchange program. Tiny Houses are just that. While they feature sleeping for up to three with kitchens and baths, complete with shower, they tend to pack it all into 200 or less square feet.
Often measuring only about eight feet in width and running 10 to 20 feet in length, they are traditionally mounted on a wheeled platform for easy relocation. “This is a big movement in the Pacific Northwest right now. It is being adopted by a lot of retiring Baby Boomers and young people who can’t afford a home of their own,” Cochran said.

Even if you never plan to live in a Tiny House of your own, she said, the workshop will teach people about Structural Insulated Panel construction, composing toilets, solar panel functions and installations. “Our intent is to offer people with creative ideas the hands-on experience required for applying these technologies to their own building uses,” Cochran said. “Part of NUNU’s mission is education. We want people to learn about this technology. It is a way to further interest in sustainability,” Cochran said.

The classes, which will be offered Feb. 28-March 1, March 7-8, March 21-22 and March 28-29, will be led by Art Cormier.
Cormier is a former police officer who constructed and now lives in his own Tiny House in Lafayette. “Cormier has conducted Tiny House workshops across the country since 2013,” Cochran said.

She said, once it is complete, this first NUNU International Artist Residency Exchange Program Tiny House will travel to Baton Rouge for the 2015 Louisiana Culture Connection. It will then return to Arnaudville for the opening of Semaine Française d’Arnaudville - French Week - April 17, where a pot luck social will welcome national and international guests to this year’s summit that concludes on April 20.

Visit nunucollective.org for more information or to register for the class.
