Rob Dunn, of Henniker, who earned a Granger Fellowship award earlier this year through Plan NH’s Scholarship and Fellowship Program, has received recognition in media across the country for his tiny house, in which he lives as he continues his studies at Green Mountain College in Vermont.

A story about him and his tiny house first appeared in a Rutland paper, and got picked up by AP.  Here is a link to one of the AP stories as it appeared in a Seattle media pubication.

Rob told us last week that “I was also told it wound up in a Virginia paper as a filler story, possibly will get picked up by the Burlington Free Press, and the story has generally sparked a lot of curiosity about the project and Green Mountain College.”  Since he wrote us, we learned that NPR has done a piece on this as well.

Not just a tiny house, but off the grid.  Rob finds this an interesting, “intense” way to save money while being in school.

As the challenge of finding smaller, affordable and efficient homes grows, tiny houses may be an answer for some.

For Rob, we are proud to be a part of support for his endeavors.
