Water Bottle Shelter (in progress)

 

2014 - ARCH 219 - Home2o Build

A special thanks to all that contributed to the Home2O Kickstarter Campaign back in the Fall of 2013. (I remain proud of our students that didn’t stop pushing, helping us raise $650 over the original $4,000 goal).

There’s great news to report. Professor Farzana Gandhi, a handful of dedicated students, and I have started construction this week. We have set-up a construction zone outside of Education Hall (on the NYIT Old Westbury Campus). We started attaching bottles to purlins today!

Naturally, folks are asking about our progress. For all those interested – keep and eye on the Home2O website this Fall. We are working with a former student (Brian Strydom – who helped our student team to win in the 2012 NY State Business Plan Competition!) to redesign the site and post all our progress. Re-launch is set for late August!
