Lots of Progress at New Site!

OM Build Tiny House Weekly Update:Progress at E. Johnson: More than a dozen volunteers at  our weekend workdays cleaned interior walls and prepped for painting and got the floor ready for sanding. Up top, the old chimney and vents have been removed to prepare for a new roof. Outside, the fence now completely encloses the back yard, so we can have secure storage of materials. Below, our Site committee makes plans for the next weekend workday.

Have materials you’d like to donate? Please check out our wish list. And a big thanks to our local Sherwin-Williams store for donating 25 gallons of interior paint!

Please come ready to work, dressed in work clothes that can get dirty or smeared with paint.

  1. I think that what OM is doing is awesome! I cannot volunteer, as I am recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon. I would, however be interested in purchasing some, or all of the various plans for the TinyHomes. Why not, as a fund raiser for OM, make those plans available? For a price of course.
