Students in the Sustainable Living* program at Maharishi University of Management will graduate with a very practical skill: the knowledge and ability to build their own ''tiny house'' and live in it mortgage-free, thanks to a recently completed course taught by Mark Stimson.

During the course, which covered much of what an architecture student would learn in the first semester of an architecture program, the students learned the elements of building, the principles of structure, and the drafting skills necessary to create a plan for a house, as well as the ability to wield a range of tools.

Each student drafted a complete plan for his or her own house, including floor plans, elevations (side views), and structure diagrams. In addition, the class as a whole built the frame of a tiny house.

The course is part of the building-and-built-environment track of the Sustainable Living program.

* Among many special features of the MUM Sustainable Living program is its focus on developing inner sustainability, described in the department's web page: ''We believe that developing sustainable businesses, societies, and communities is dependent upon those entities being comprised of highly developed individuals. . . . Sustainability is about creating a thriving world in which we lead rich, productive, and fulfilling lives—without depleting the environment or ourselves. To meet our responsibility to current and future generations, we must connect with our own inner nature. MUM's Consciousness-Based education and Transcendental Meditation technique expand your awareness and help you realign to act in harmony with nature.''
