Tiny Cedar siding house

Cedar shingle donation for a school project

Waska got the opportunity to help provide cedar shingles for a project at the Shaker Road School in Concord NH, sponsored by Marinace Architects. The project was to conceptualize, design, and build of a tiny house on their school property.

The best part of this project is its reason for being: to introduce the next generation, and particularly girls, who are underrepresented in the design fields and trades, to the fields of architecture, interior design, engineering, and construction. The hope is that they will one day consider working in one of these careers.

They felt that the best way to get kids interested in a subject is to have them engaged in a hands-on project where they do the work, and have a stake in creating something themselves. They had over 20 students of grade 5 to 8 involved in the project. The kids are being introduced to a variety of different tools. They are learning about foundations, structural design principles and how to install cedar shingles. They have also designed, built, and installed custom windows and doors. They even learned about electrical wiring as well as plenty of other techniques.

Cedar shingles for the construction of an exterior classroom

In October 2017, Waska was offered an opportunity to contribute to a great project by donating white cedar shingles for a gazebo (exterior classroom) that was being built at Centre d’apprentissage du Haut-Madawaska school with the help of New Brunswick Community College of Edmundston. The official unveiling will take place at the end of May 2018.

Here is a video that showcases the project from beginning to end!
