Students Collaborating to Build First Student-led Tiny House
The Western Front
May 16, 2018
Western’s first tiny house is on schedule for completion by summer 2019, the first in a growing program that has organizers looking for volunteers across campus and majors.
Project Zero Net Energy Tiny House (ZeNETH), a student-led venture housed by the Institute for Energy Studies, is building a tiny house to offer a potential solution for affordable housing while implementing sustainable practices.
Senior Kellen Lynch is the project manager of ZeNETH.
“I believe we should be compelled to innovate and change things all around us if we’re seeing issues,” Lynch said. “But doing it in a mindful way, not just going out and reshuffling the world based on our image.”
