THE STORY:

Rpga Studio Inc wrote -

Women Who Build - Artists Who Own is about empowering women and girls to work together and learn to build!

We are raising money to help fund the costs of materials including:

- trailer $5,000

- frame & flooring $5,000

- plumbing & electrical $3,000

- roofing & windows $2,000

Volunteer and Executive Director Yvonne Shortt is raising $10,000 while fellow volunteers and participants will raise the additional $5,000.

On Saturday April 1st 2017, I will be hosting a women's self-defense class at the RPGA Studio in LIC. There will be two 1-hour long sessions (10:00AM and 12:00PM). If you are a woman and would like to participate, please put "self-defense 10AM" OR "self-defense 12PM" in the comment section of your donation. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions!

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
