We pulled into my home state the day before our tour event at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln just in time to hang out at a campground with some geese and this wood duck.

The following day we arrived on campus and set up shop at Hardin Hall. This is the school of natural resources at the university and was a perfect fit for us. A colleague of ours who I used to work at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium now works there and was a fantastic help in getting us set up. Thanks Elyse!

Throughout the day we had staff, students, and even a friend stop by who we met this summer at the Fourth of July celebration in Seward. His name is James, and he’s building a tiny home of his own. He’s also a high school junior with hopes of attending MIT in a couple years. He and his family are partially though the build process and had a ton of questions.

We love to answer questions about our experiences with both tiny homes and working with animals, so this was a welcome surprise.

We gave a presentation that evening to staff, students, and the public and it was one of our best Q&A sessions yet. Apparently Nebraska is hungry for tiny home knowledge!

We can’t thank everyone enough for having us and coming out to see the house and the presentation, you all are awesome. Till next time Nebraska…Go Big Red.
