Sustainable constructions, Tiny Houses and Off-Grid systems

Brenderup Højskole has been focusing a lot on sustainable building in the last few years. Our new Off-Grid strawbalehouse is ready and in the coming years will stand its test. Course participants and Steen Møller have created new knowledge and a fantastic sustainable, innovative house.

The next step will be in the same direction – but different – as you and we have to become even smarter in sustainable building and sustainable lifestyle. We will focus on mobile solutions. We will work with the ’Tiny House’ concept. The course still has the same inspiration of sustainable constructions and materials, Off-Grid and focus on a greener future.

The course emphasizes willingness, responsibility and community, and we practice the ability to dream and to realize the personal and the community’s visions.

This course is for you who want knowledge about – and skills in – drawing, designing and building your own Tiny House, while receiving education in Off-Grid systems, sustainable construction and materials.

During the course you will work both individually and in a community. You will receive instruction – and time – for drawing and designing your own Tiny House – from dream to ground plan and model. Parallel we will build a Tiny House  together and explore the wonderful world of aspects in living Off-Grid.

Through the practical processes in the actual construction you will acquire experience as well as you will get the possibility to apply your newly acquired knowledge and skills around constructions, materials and tools.



The course is built up by 4 chosen subjects with specific focus areas:

-        Design, drawing, model building, aesthetics and dreams

-        Off-Grid systems and Off-Grid living

-        Knowledge of tools and materials and sauna building

-        Tiny House building
