Tiny House Course and Construction Begins!

Today another 13 Maharishi University of Management (MUM) students will begin MUM's popular Tiny Houses Course! The month-long course covers a plethora of topics ranging from design and materials to building Tiny House Communities and off-grid living.

In the picture below, Mark Stimson the MUM course Instructor, stands along the framing for the north wall of a tiny house. The course participants will be building the tiny house designed by one of MUM's students, Heather Caldwell, who will be an assistant facilitator of the course.

Over this past weekend the northern wall framing was cut to size. This afternoon course participants will completely conjoin the northern wall cuts and plywood. This exercise displays the easy and speed of stick building to course participants. In the coming days students will cut to spec the remainder of the framing and completely assemble the tiny house.

During the remainder of the course students will learn all about Tiny Houses, finish construction of the Tiny House pictured below, AND each student will design and create floor plans and cut lists for one of their very own tiny houses!
