Greetings from Occupy Madison’s OM Build Tiny House Project!
This is our second weekly volunteer update. We’re sending this to you because you indicated an interest in volunteering with OM Build’s Tiny House Project.
Pallet-Pallooza makes a house worth of siding and lumber:
Saturday’s Pallet-Palooza event brought together nearly a dozen volunteers to deconstruct stacks of pallets, making enough reclaimed pallet wood to side one tiny house, and nearly enough reclaimed 2×4’s to frame a house. Thanks to all the volunteers who turned out!
Video Tour – Tiny House at night:
Thanks to Bruce for a nighttime video tour of our first house, showing the ultra-efficient LED lighting and battery system, soon to be powered by a solar panel donated to us by the University of Wisconsin engineering school. Click here to take the tour!

Sign-up procedure: 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 shift. We use the online VolunteerSpot service to handle scheduling.
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.)
