Today was incredible as we placed our four fully framed walls on our trailer. With help from family and friends we were able to complete this task in a few hours. The time lapse video we took makes in look like a piece of cake, but between leveling, squaring, and placing braces it was quite a day! Stay tuned for the link that will be on our youtube channel!
We can’t wait to continue our build!
I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday. I wanted to share with you that we have set up a gofundme in the hopes of gaining financial support in purchasing materials for the build. If you would like to contribute to our project, follow the link above. No contribution is too small and we are grateful for all and any support we receive.
I would also like to share that I met with Rachel Meginnes, Visiting Instructor of Art, this past Friday about our project. I am so grateful for the support we have received from the college and for the wonderful conversation I had with Rachel. We talking through her questions and I explained our process moving forward. I appreciated Rachel’s approach to our conversation because after we discussed the basics, she went on to share with me information about ‘building’ in relation to art. She introduced me to Andrea Zittel work and it spoke to me about the possibilities for the future of art, design, sustainability, intentional living, and community. Our future truly is now! Thank you Rachel for the wonderful conversation and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from you this past semester!
All the best,
We are still waiting to hear a final response about our proposal, but in the mean time we are continuing to do are research. As we finalize our floor plan, we are looking for help with drafting a three-dimensional model of our tiny house. If you would like to reach out to us for help in this process we would be grateful! Or with any other ideas or guidance! We are continuing to meet with numerous faculty and staff on campus to relieve any concerns and answer any question in the effort to push our proposal forward.
The good news is that Abby’s self-designed internship has formally been approved! We are very excited about this as it will contribute to funding for purchasing materials for the construction. We are also setting up a Kickstarter (link to be provided shortly)! If you would like to contribute to our build, even a small amount, we would be very grateful!
We hope you have a lovely week!
Abby and Lily
