Did you miss Macy Miller’s Tiny Open House this last weekend in Boise? It was great to see the place and ask all the questions we could that come up when you see the details up close in person. Macy did a great job and the highlights for me were the metal work, the repurposed wood siding, and the sliding door for the bathroom. To read more about her Tiny House project visit her website at MiniMotives.com. There are also some very professional photos of her house that are just slightly higher quality than mine!

The Idaho Chapter is sending a delegation as usual to collaborate with our colleagues at national USGBC and with chapter leaders around the country and world. We’re particularly excited to hear from all the great speakers including former Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton and political polling statistician Nate Silver.
