My name is Alyssa Alvarez, an Interior Design sophomore student. I heard about the Tiny House build at the USGBC student meeting in the beginning of fall 2015. I am so excited about this project and happy that I get to have a hand in this movement of sustainable living. I will be working on the physical build of the project and helping construct the house. This I am very excited for, because I will not only be able to learn about the construction of a home, but also get to learn from the other majors participating like construction management, landscape architecture, etc. I think my concept of what the build would be is exactly what I expected: So much fun and so interesting. I am very excited to see how quickly the build has already progressed and also wasn’t expecting it to move by so quickly. Ive learned a lot so far about the foundations of the build and also a lot about materials. I think this is very important, because these are things that every designer should know to make them a better designer. I am happy that this project is being headed and done by students to really educate everyone from all aspects of the build process.
