The students’ first move was to create a frame of telephone poles and top them with a roof that sheltered the students when working in bad weather. The house is in a flood plain, so it is raised on footings, and one wall is made of old tires filled with dirt and covered in chicken wire and cement. The students took their cue from the much-photographed Yancey Chapel (1995), also called the tire chapel, in Sawyerville.
