The Iowa City Small House Alliance is planning to organize “crowdsourced service project charity action community events.”
Applied to the Small House Movement, one of the greatest benefits of a service event would be the more economical creation of tiny homes by bringing together people with resources, tools, experience, and skills.
Just as repurposing of materials is a great way to keep costs down, using locally sourced volunteer labor can help speed up the process of building a home while brining the cost down.
Service projects are also a great way for people to meet and build relationships.
As our local Iowa City chapter of the Small House Society plans future meetings, we hope that those can take place as local build events. Or, perhaps in some other way help advance the local small house community. We hope this can be an inspiration for other communities.
