"I see tiny houses as a powerful tool to teach home construction job skills.  When constructing a tiny home we use all the same tools and go through all the same steps as constructing a large home, only the project is expedited into a much shorter time frame. You get to witness how each step effects the next and hopefully gain a decent comprehension of the entire building proecess.  For more experienced builders there is always opportunity to partake in the aspects that you have less experience with as well as the ever-present challenges with space, requiring creative solutions.  Once a person has a good understanding of how homes are constructed as well as a command on the use of the tools required, they have not only a valuable job skill-set, but also a pathway to creating ones own affordable housing solution." - Zack Giffin
