Gimme Shelter is a 48 hour building blitz! Teams will compete for the best micro shelter, judged in 4 categories- Cost, Replicability, Functionality, and Style. The perfect house will be cheap, easy to reproduce, good looking, and 100% off the grid. Teams will start building on Friday, September 20th, and finish at 6pm on Sunday, September 22nd.

There will be prizes, schmoozing, and every house will be on display! This event will be donation based, sliding scale from $5-20. Every dollar donated will go directly to building tiny houses. Why are tiny houses important? Tiny houses are important because they are fun, easy to build, and can help address a lot of real-world challenges, like houselessness, affordable housing, urban growth, and energy footprint. Our goal is to use healthy competition to spur design of open-source micro homes, to spur conversation around these topics, and developing new solutions. http://www.facebook.com/events/562949917075390/
