In the past, I’ve featured some of Rural Studio’s work before. In fact, it’s one of my favorite stories which dates back to July 2, 2010 and it’s titled Students Design/Build 400 Sq. Ft. Home for $20k.
The school builds tiny and small homes for only $20,000 in materials while providing affordable housing to those in need in the area while students are getting hands on design and construction experience. They also get a chance to give while doing it. On top of all that, recipients for affordable housing get access to night classes for continuing adult education.

I think it’s a great program so I wanted to share it with you in case you might want to get involved in some way whether you want to donate or get involved with the College of Architecture, Design and Construction at Auburn University.
Below you can see more of what the good people over at Rural Studio have been doing over the years. They’ve even written and published a book called Rural Studio at Twenty: Designing and Building in Hale County, Alabama. At the bottom I list some helpful links in case you’re interested in learning more about Auburn University, their $20k house projects, or if you want to donate. Either way, please enjoy and re-share the photos, links and videos below. Thank you!
