Tiny ^2 House Event
Time & Location
About The Event
Makerologist and Key Tech Labs will guide you through the process of building your first Tiny Tiny House. Everyone is welcome, but middle-school and high school youth are particularly encouraged to attend. We hope to use at least one of the youth designs to build a life-size tiny home for a small family in a Seattle neighborhood.
You’ll learn some of the foundations of architecture, construction, electrical engineering, and internet of things (IoT) for automated housing features. You will also work with 3D printed and laser cut components to furnish and customize your Tiny Tiny House.
The Tiny Tiny House Project is an educational kit for ages 10 and up. Based on a standard shipping container, the base model is produced on a 1:12 scale (8in x 20in x 8.5in) which is small enough to work on a standard desk or table, but large enough to enable tactile learning. To encourage learning beyond kit assembly, Makerologist and Key Tech Labs will provide open source design files and workshops for people to truly customize their Tiny Tiny House by their own hands and imagination.
Since the Tiny Tiny House model kit is just a scaled-down version of a shipping container home, one could theoretically build a life-size version of their Tiny Tiny House using the same knowledge foundation. This type of learning experience is by design, as it makes entering such industries less intimidating while also providing a head start on the evolution of construction with the integration of home automation technologies.
