Tiny Home Build Weekend @ Sci-Quest

August 8, 2015 - August 9, 2015

FREE!

Can you build a house in one weekend? Volunteers from Foundations for Tomorrow along with the Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy are doing just that as they show residents how to build and power a tiny home in just two days in Sci-Quest’s parking lot. Tiny houses are small, often mobile houses of less than 500 square feet and feature multifunctional living spaces, energy efficiency and use of vertical space. Tiny homes are often used in cities where space is at a premium or as transitional housing for people without homes.

Visitors are invited out to see this moveable tiny home being built from start to finish and learn what it takes to makes these tiny living spaces. There will be different educational stations inside the Science Center to learn about construction and energy, self-sufficiency and important life skills as the home is built.

When complete, the tiny home will be donated to an Alabama homeless citizen showing that we can change a life in one weekend.

Visitors are encouraged to watch the tiny home being built for free outside in Sci-Quest’s parking lot. Activities inside the Science Center are included with general admission.
