Wow what a week!

OM Build Tiny House Weekly Update:


More OM Build in the news: The Associated Press picked up on the OM Build tiny house story, and that caught  the attention of media as far away as the London Daily Mail.


Gaining on our $50,000 goal: Since we announced our “Double your donation” matching program. nearly $5000 in donations have come in, pushing our Indiegogo crowd-sourcing campaign past the $15000 mark, towards a goal of $50,000 to fund ten tiny houses. Click here to donate.


Attention Techies! Want to get involved helping with the website, data management, etsy, on-line presence and other computer related work? We will be meeting on Sunday, March 9th at 4:00pm at the Social Justice Center (1202 Williamson St.) to sort out what needs to be done, see what volunteers want to do and get better coordinated and more hands working on many of the behind the scenes work to be done! New ideas and technology considerations welcome!

Sign-up procedure: We’re back to using the Volunteer Spot website, to help manage the increasing number of volunteers. Click here to sign in, choose an open shift and be at the shop ready to work at your chosen time. To maintain safety and be sure everyone has something useful to do, we’re limiting volunteers to 3 per shift. We 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.
