Tiny Shelter Initiative
Check out a previous Tiny Home collaboration with HRDC and MSU School of Architecture.

Help MSU School of Architecture students build a Net-Zero Tiny Home and make a difference in the community. Lessons learned from the previous projects will be applied to the proposed Net-Zero demonstration home.

The home will be designed and built to be net-zero energy, water and waste independent intended for either a single resident or couple.

Built by students the home will be designed to take advantage of modular design principles so that it could be built in a factory and shipped to communities throughout Montana and the Northern Rocky Mountain Region. To ensure its usefulness for everyone the home will conform to the American Disability Act.

In addition to its use as a proof-of-concept demonstration home visiting lecturers and faculty will be housed in it to test its quality of life characteristics.

 

Thank you for supporting our students and the MSU School of Architecture.
