Community Builds – Two Tiny Homes

The most common question we get here at Sawhorse is definitely “When can I come build with you?!” and this summer, we’ve been lucky enough to host some of our enthusiastic supporters on the job site.

Led Sawhorse Student Ambassadors, our team of radical builders have been working all summer on “Simon and Garfunkel,” a pair of mirror-image tiny homes to benefit Seattle’s homeless population. Students that have gone through past programs with Sawhorse applied for this paid leadership program, in which they build the confidence to act as site superintendents, teaching safety and tool skills and delegating tasks to a rotating cast of community members. They even got the chance to lead a group of students, when the awesome team Seattle Art Museum’s “Design Your Hood” program came by for a build! Big thanks to all the groups that have provided professional build mentors and folks new to construction, keeping this awesome network of community members hard at work to serve our neighborhoods!
