USGBC Florida Kicking Off First-of-its-Kind Tiny Home Build

The U.S. Green Building Council Florida Community (USGBC Florida), along with its partners Eco Relics and Norsk Tiny Homes, are celebrating the groundbreaking of the United State’s first LEED certified tiny home on Saturday, August 26, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. at 106 Stockton St., Jacksonville, FL 32204.

The project, known as LEEDing Tiny, is anticipating that at least 75 percent of its building materials will be repurposed and that this will be the first tiny home in the country to earn Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The build, which begins on Monday, August 28, will be open to the public to visit and will also be livestreamed online.

The kickoff event invites the whole community to learn more about tiny home and living smaller, easier, more meaningful lives and making a home healthy, high performing and environmentally sustainable. Live music, food and drinks will be supplied, and members of the project committee, as well as sponsors and partners of the tiny home build will be available to answer any questions.
