Tiny Houses are a growing phenomenon among reality tv watchers and now there's a framed-in tiny house taking shape on Wooster School's campus in Danbury. Wooster’s Makerspace and Theater teacher Kim Gerardi says the building process, adding utilities, and interior design makes for a rich curriculum.
The students will have to decided whether it will run on electricity or solar power and whether water will come from the well system or rain collection. Students have been researching whether it should be mobile or stay on campus.
Gerardi says the tiny house could become a new student center, visiting or new faculty could live there for a month and write about it, or it could be used for a Senior Independent Study experience. Other ideas include using it as a spirit truck to sell Wooster Wear and concessions.
Gerardi plans to enter Wooster in the Maker Faire Westport 2018 in April.
