WELCOME to the LEEDing Tiny Project!
Our nonprofit organization's amazing volunteers are super-excited to offer this opportunity to you and those who care about advancing sustainability, green building, tiny houses and meaningful lives. We are joining the tiny house buzz in a BIG WAY -- taking it to the next important level with a focus on healthy, high-performing, resilient and sustainable achievement. Through a tri-partnership with U.S. Green Building Council Florida, Eco Relics, and Norsk Tiny Houses, this project is on track to be the first LEED Certified tiny house in the nation, as well as inspire other tiny houses and communities to build at this level of performance and wellness.
The goals for this ambitious project include:
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT ASAP!
Because this project is on such a fast track to be able to debut at the St. Johns County Tiny House Festival in mid-November, we need to raise money immediately! We have an amazing sponsorship packet and an online crowdfunding campaign for donations with Indiegogo Generosity to make this happen! In-kind support of products, materials and service are also most welcome.
Project timeline -- tiny bit Fast!
We want this inspirational tiny house built by October 1, so we have time to submit for LEED certification in time to debut at the mid-November Tiny House Festival. So we need to raise all the necessary funds in July and August, build out in August and September, submit LEED documentation in October, debut in November, road trip December 2017 - November 2018 all around Florida, and end at Greenbuild 2018 in Chicago. Final step is to give the house to someone in need, use it to start a tiny house community (our dream would be a tiny house community for Veterans in transition), or some other awesome idea!
Watch for upcoming events including a kick-off party, open house, and final celebration, as well as lots of updates via this website, social media and blogs along the way!
Wow! What an amazing group of people we have volunteering their time, talent, treasure and sweat equity! If you see these people around your region, please make sure you give them a big bravo and pat on the back!
