Even though classes are cancelled, it will be a busy day. If your work is being presented to visiting reviewers, you are required to be present (whether or not you yourself are making the presentation). Even if your work is not the focus of a session with reviewers, we strongly encourage you to attend all of Friday’s events and seize the day as a networking and learning opportunity. Please visit the CED website for a complete list of events.

TINY HOUSE IN MY BACKYARD

TINY HOUSE IN MY BACKYARD 2.0


Are you interested in tiny house construction and design?
Would you like to learn about about using tiny homes to solve student and homeless housing issues?
Do you want hands-on construction experience?
Do you have a passion for design, sustainability, or consulting for an exciting and innovative housing concept?

We are Tiny House in My Backyard (THIMBY), an interdisciplinary team of UC Berkeley graduate and undergraduate students. For Thimby 1.0, we designed and built an affordable, sustainable, 100% solar-powered tiny house. We are now looking to form a dynamic team for THIMBY 2.0. This time, we will partner with the City of Richmond to create a tiny home for homeless housing. We will also explore how to scale up tiny house production. 

Join us for our first meeting where we will assemble our core team and discuss a plan of action:

Monday, December 11 @5pm
Room 381 (Shasta Room)
Barrows Hall | UC Berkeley campus
