This blog was started to chronicle the experiences of two UGA faculty – Kim Skobba, from the Department of Financial Planning, Housing and Consumer Economics, and David Berle, from the Department of Horticulture, and George Wright, a local residential contractor, and 13 students enrolled in our Fall 2015 course on tiny houses and green residential construction. Once again, we are with Georgia Organics to build a house to be placed on a small organic farm in Georgia as part of their Farmer Growth & Sustainability Initiative.
This fall (August 2016) will begin building our second house. Using lessons learned from the first year, and working with a new group of 15 students, we continue to explore the possibilities for tiny house construction and perhaps learn a little something along the way. Follow us as we start with a bare trailer and build a tiny house over the semester.
