THE STORY:

I am happy to participate in this Tiny House build.

It is a thoughtful and exciting project with several aims, including:

Educating and empowering women and girls

and

Demonstrating one innovative solution to housing needs

I barely know how to hammer a nail. But now I have used a miter saw.

It is important for women to know how to take care of practical things they need and want to do.

And it strengthens our wellbeing when we know that we are capable and independent. 

The Tiny House will be built this spring.

I appreciate your interest and support. 

 

 

On Saturday morning, May 6th 2017 we'll be hosting a 5K for $5K in Forest Park, Queens - accessible via the E/F lines. Please consider donating to the cause, signing-up to walk/run with us, or choosing to join our campaign and committing to raising $100!

 

More info about the project (+link):

Participants gain confidence in using power tools, expand their networks, and learn how to build. After the tiny house is built, it will travel the 5 boroughs with participants in the project discussing innovative strategies people are taking to deal with higher rent/workspace costs, lower wages, and community empowerment. From October until May women are volunteering and sharing their skills to help raise funding for the project, make sure other like-minded women know about the project, and gain the vital construction skills necessary to ensure the success of the project.

Building starts on May 29, 2017 and follows the schedule below:

Week 1: Subfloor framing and sheathing (alone)

Week 2: Wall framing and sheathing, doors and windows, exterior siding

Week 3: Roofing, electrical and plumbing

Week 4: Interior siding, trim

Week 5: Flooring, end electrical
