Quite a while back, I put a post together on this sustainable building school. You can get all of the details on how to get involved there.
This is part of Yestermorrow’s semester in sustainable design and building course. The school teachers over 150 hands on workshops every year.
They cover design, construction, woodworking, and concentrations in sustainability. This particular project consists of a 227 square foot house on a trailer.
In the film, one of the student builders, Ben Berton says, “I think tiny houses are relevant, especially for the younger generation because, I feel like the younger generation tends to be more of a transient generation. And if you have a tiny house, especially if it’s on a trailer, your house can move with you.”
A friend sent me a link to a really interesting sustainable building school called Yestermorrow. It’s located in Warren, Vermont and offers hundreds hands on courses in sustainable design, construction, woodworking, furniture making, green building, and more. It has been operating as a non profit organization since 1980.
They offer 1-day to 10-week intense courses taught by top architects, builders, and craftsmen. They also have certificate programs for woodworking, sustainable building and design, and natural building. This is a place I would absolutely LOVE to spend some time in. Here is an example of just SOME of their course offerings…
