We’re so excited to announce that Make It Right is partnering with FYI’s Tiny House Nation on our very first tiny home! We’re building the house for a very deserving local school teacher in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward.
Construction photos and facts about this special house below.
Make It Right’s tiny house will be 496 square feet. Downstairs includes a living room, full kitchen, full bathroom and washer / dryer for laundry. Upstairs includes one bedroom, closet and work area / desk.
Tiny House Nation features renovation experts and hosts, John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, traveling across America to show off ingenious small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 500 square feet. They’re proving that size doesn’t always matter – it’s creativity that counts.
Make It Right’s design manager Jordan Pollard (left) and Craig Turner (right) worked on the design of the home and are leading a team of workers to build the house in three weeks.
The home will have all the green features of a standard Make It Right home – solar-power, ENERGY STAR appliances, no-VOC paint, sustainable floors, recycled countertops and more.
Our team is working hard to finish the tiny house by August 28 (provided that tropical storm stays out of the Gulf!). And we can’t wait to show you the finished home next week!
