Women Who Build-Artists Who Own: A Tiny House Build in NYC

BENEFITING: Rpga Studio Inc

ORGANIZER: Rpga Studio Inc

EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017

THE STORY:

As a woman, environmentalist, and aspiring handy-person - this project is very important to me. I love collaborating with people and thinking creatively about how to transform the world around us for the better. Tiny houses are one such way! By literally reducing our spatial footprint and minimizing our ability for excess, tiny houses represent a very efficient and affordable way to live on this planet.

Despite practically growing up in my father's toolbox, I don't have much experience doing repairs and/or construction, so learning how to frame and build a house by actually doing it alongside other amazing women is something that I very much look forward to!

Thanks for your support!

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

RPGA Studio is raising $10,000 but seeking an additional $5,000 to cover the above costs. 

 

More info about the project:

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 

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
