Other Updates:

This is our first weekly volunteer update. We’re sending this to you because you indicated an interest in volunteering with OM Build’s Tiny House Project.

OM Build is making progress!
A recent vote in the Madison Common Council changes Madison’s zoning ordinances,  allowing local churches and nonprofits to host our tiny houses.

Our first house is nearly complete, and ready to move into the neighborhood near the OM Build Shop on Argosy Court.

Our second house is still under construction, and most of our work this week will focus on getting House #2 ready to move outside the shop – making space to begin construction on House 3! Work on House 2 includes completing exterior siding of reclaimed pallet wood and work on the roof sections.

We’ve got a full schedule of evening hours below, and a special “Pallet-Palooza” event planned for Saturday.

For safety and to ensure we have work available for everyone who shows up, we need to limit the number of volunteers to 4 per night shift and 8 at the Saturday Pallet-Palooza event. We use the online VolunteerSpot service to handle scheduling.
CLICK HERE  to sign up for volunteer hours. Please remember, when you sign up, you’re taking one of the available slots from other volunteers, so don’t sign up unless you’re sure you can attend.

We can work with volunteers at all skill levels, so don’t hesitate to volunteer simply because you lack construction experience. The most important qualification we look for is a willingness to learn, to take instructions from the Shop Manager and to follow all shop safety procedures.
Please come ready to work, dressed in work clothes that can get dirty or smeared with paint, and wear close-toed shoes (boots preferred, if you have them.)
