UGA faculty members Kim Skobba and David Berle have teamed up to create a service-learning course based on the tiny house construction craze.
Skobba, an assistant professor in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, and Berle, an associate professor in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Design, applied for and received a $30,000 grant to fund the project.
The FHCE 4900/6900 course is called Green Building and the Tiny House Movement.
The first “Tiny Dawg House,” a one-room construction complete with living, kitchen and bath areas, is 150 square feet and manufactured by 13 students in the course with assistance from a local contractor.
