IRTH University ~ Online Classes

Updated: Apr 4

From an IRTH U Student: "Just wanted to say thank you so much for creating this tiny house class series/workshop. It’s been such a joy to take part in, and I just love the energy and wisdom you both bring. . . . I’m loving each class. Peter shares such detailed, expert tips and information. I appreciate getting inside knowledge from a true craftsman. Looking forward to next month’s class! - Emily L.
