Back in College, I spent Spring Break building a house for Habitat for Humanity and the mental imprint it made on me was permanent. Having a home is something many of us take for granted, especially in a culture where our housing footprints keep enlarging. I work in the home design industry so in many ways I'm part of that, but my firm also creates designs that are as sustainable as possible and are part of an increasing movement to build greener structures. Micro-living and net-zero structures are both cornerstones of that movement and the Tiny Beach House brings both TOGETHER!
The Tiny Beach House project features a live tiny house build during the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce Home & Garden Show on May 19th and 20th 2018. The Tiny Beach House will be erected primarily with salvaged construction materials/waste and will highlight sustainable building practices, resulting in a net-zero micro-model of green living. Public tours will take place on Sunday May 20th so all Long Islanders can see how downsized greener living is just as comfortable and stylish, and can see how easy it is to build sustainably. After completion of the live 3-day public build and tours, the Tiny Beach House will be available to win in a national online forum, with all proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity in Nassau County NY.
