First Meeting!

16 members attended our first Tiny House Build meet-up! During this meeting we discussed the guiding principles and established the work groups available. To be part of our collaborative build you must be able to attend our monthly meetings and commit to 6 volunteer hours with a working group. Attend the next one! Date: Saturday, December 10th @ 10AM Location: RPGA Studio 43-01 22nd St, Suite 252 LIC, NY 11101
