Thinking small: UGA students building tiny house
Instructors and coaches often encourage students to think big, but a new class at the University of Georgia this semester is getting them to think small.
It’s a “tiny house” course, and the 13 students enrolled are actually building one of the little dwellings out at the university’s UGArden off South Milledge Avenue.
Students are learning more than carpentry, though, said Kim Skobbe, a professor in UGA’s Department of Financial Planning, Housing and Consumer Economics. Skobbe is co-teaching the class with UGA horticulture professor David Berle.
