The Future Is Bright: Here Are A Few Examples
Tiny Homes- Hope For Our Youth!
There are over 500 schools in the United States that currently offers a curriculum called Geometry in Construction, designed by the company Contextual Learning Concepts.
Students learn math by building a tiny home with tools and materials. The first year the school funds the project, and after that, the program is self-sustained by selling the homes.
Tiny Homes Are Creating Careers
Seventy percent of construction companies are struggling to find qualified workers. And skilled trades, which includes welders, carpenters, electricians, mechanics and plumbers, have been the hardest to fill since 2010. And the jobs pay well. There are over 30 million jobs that pay an average of $55,000 a year and don’t require a bachelor’s degree.
THIA has started and Events Calendar. We will be adding festival events, meetups, meetings with city councils, Appendix Q public comment stages, tiny home celebrations and more. Please contact us if you have an event you want to share or a news tip. This is another benefit of being a member, to promote your event.
Appendix Q: Tiny Homes On A Foundation
We are in the process of documenting jurisdictions and states that have adopted Appendix Q for Tiny Homes. We have over 20 states listed now and many states are in the public comment stage, including New York, Washington state, Montana, and Connecticut.
