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
As we move forward with our project, I have taken it upon myself to develop a self-designed internship that encompasses the interdisciplinary nature of this project. As an art major, I am interested in the design and construction embodied in this project. My interests in environmental studies, psychology, and education will all show their faces as I learn about human connections, habits, sustainable living, and the value of learning from hands on experience.
In the hopes of spending my summer building a tiny home I reached out to an organization, Live Simply Colorado, based out of my home town, Denver. With resources and personal connections, this organization will help with construction taking place in a timely manner.
Today, I had the pleasure of talking with the Barbara Mariner, Managing Directer, and after an educational and empowering conversation I received an email from her reaffirming our decision to work together this summer as mentor and mentee. My enthusiasm for this project was immediately heightened upon receiving this email and I am ecstatic to move forward with our final proposal. I cannot wait to work with Barbara as she is a well-spoken and well-rounded professional that I will be able to gain knowledge and understand from as well as learning about myself and the community she has been able to establish through her organization.
I am looking forward to an educational, inspiring, challenging, identity defining, and mind blowing summer project.
