Nerd Girl Homes: Building Tiny Houses for a Good Cause

This post contains affiliate links.

Meet Kendall. She’s a high school student who started an amazing tiny house project that she calls Nerd Girl Homes.

Her goal is to build tiny houses for a good cause. Kendall is currently building a Tumbleweed Lusby Tiny House from the ground up and when she’s finished she will either donate it to a deserving person or give the proceeds of its raffle to a charity.

If you’re interested in helping her with her mission you can either donate your labor, some money, or materials for the project. My intention with this post is to inspire you to give Kendall a hand with her mission, even if it’s only $10 or $15 that you send her way (if you can and want to).

The Lusby is a 117 square foot home designed by Jay Shafer that’s meant to be built on an 18′ flat-bed utility trailer. Her goal is to raise $15,000 for this project and so far- as I write this post- she’s raised $9,091. Let’s help her reach her goal so she can give this home away to someone who needs it and start another!

Here’s one Kendall’s latest photos and her current progress. She just needs your help and support to finish the project so that she can give the home away to someone who needs it.

    I think it is a great idea. Perhaps instead of giving it away, sell it at a very low price so the person who gets it will appreciated it more (I read that people appreciate what they have when they pay for it even if the price is really low).

    How about using it when you go to college in lieu of a Dorm room?
