RB is the SustainaFest Tiny House Build Project Manager. He came to us through a Key School recommendation and we are so excited he has joined our team. RB is a father of two, a military veteran who served in the Army, an experienced carpenter and project manager, and has years of experience working with the Anne Arundel County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity as a Construction Manager. He is interested in helping with the Tiny House Project because he values hands-on learning and spearheading an educational legacy that students can create, experience and take with them into the future. He is also really enthusiastic about the excitement around the tiny house movement and sustainability in general. RB is looking forward to working with all the campers, working together as a team, and the satisfaction of building a house from the ground up. We look forward to RB leading Tiny House construction!!!

This is the Minim House, currently located at Boneyard Studios in Washington, DC. It was designed by Brian Levy and will be the model that campers will build this summer at Key School as part of the inaugural Lab project focused on sustainability living and shelter. Did you know that the average new home size in America has more than doubled in the last 35 years? Due to increased demands on natural resources and ever-growing individual debt, a movement has begun to take shape that encourages a deeper understanding of living choices and tends toward a realignment of priorities, valuing quality over quantity, community over separation, and time over material assets.
