The starting point

We are not exactly sure when our idea to build a tiny house within a UGA class came to be, but we know that it has taken years to get to this point. For the past several years, we’ve been thinking about how we could bring together our different interests at UGA to develop an experiential, service-learning class. David and I are both tiny house fans and quickly realized that tiny houses could fill an important housing need for organic farm workers. This semester, our small group of dedicated students will build what we hope will become a prototype for affordable, sustainable housing for interns and other people working on organic farms. We were able to secure funding for the materials and have spent the past year planning many of the details for this course.  We know that there will be bumps along the way but we are excited to get started.
