Outline - Tiny Home Interiors & Ship's Cabinetry

Introduction to Tiny Home Interiors

& Ship’s Cabinetry

When trying to incorporate all the amenities of a full sized house into a space the size of a large bedroom, there are many considerations. One of the most important of these is cabinetry and storage. Understanding the restrictions and construction principles of cabinetry in a non-uniform space will give you the skills needed to conceive of and build interiors for Tiny Homes and Boats.


This intensive course is designed for people who already are DIY'ers or build cabinetry and furniture for large homes and wish to make the switch to building tiny homes and boat interiors. Students will learn the differences between regular Home furniture and Tiny Home furniture and Ships Cabinetry, how to organize and build a space within a nonlinear structure. There will be a focus on how cabinetry and furniture should be built for a concentrated space with special consideration for withstanding extreme environments and jarring travels. We will also cover dimensional differences and multi-functional furniture. We’ll explore the construction of furniture and cabinetry and how it differs from standard assembly. Students will finish this course understanding not only how to build ergonomic and attractive interiors, but also how to revitalize a dysfunctional small space.
