Tiny House Building Project at Aldinga, South Australia

Tiny House Caravan

The caravan that will be deconstructed and form the base of the tiny house.

I have been asked to ‘put the word out’ about a community project involving building a tiny house at Aldinga Arts Eco Village.

The project will be being undertaken from May 20th- around June 8th or so.

They are looking for volunteers to help with this project and particularly anyone who has good building knowledge, such as a current or retired builder or a student/apprentice builder.

Other helpers would also be appreciated.

You don’t have to be involved in the whole project… just for whatever time you can offer.

I would imagine older kids, such as teens, may be able to take part (you would have to check with d’Arcy if they have an age limit, as it is a building project with potential dangers) but I would think that it wouldn’t be suitable for young children.

They are also after various materials for donation to the project:

• Plywood sheets for outside cladding and maybe weatherboard for the toilet
• Rust removal and rust prep paint for the trailer as well as wire brushes and clean up the trailer
• Frosted glass door or glass door for the front door
• A couple more sheets of gyprock for interior cladding
• Structural wood for framing
• Solar converter and batteries and someone who might like to give a solar DIY lesson

If anyone is interested in taking part or helping out in any way here is the link to the project http://happysimply.wordpress.com/and you can email d’Arcy at darcy@globalpovertyproject.com
