The Maine Office of Tourism featured Shelter Institute in an ad in the recent New York Times Magazine summer travel issue. It was an great pleasure to be mentioned among great summer destinations like L.L. Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School, Bay Sailing School, Summer Keys, and other fine Maine institutions.
Early in Shelter’s history, the Times ran articles that described the growth of the self-build movement and the emergence of schools to teach homebuilding skills. Here’s one quote from Pat in 1981:
”America is based on pilgrims coming over here and knocking together log cabins,” said Patrice Hennin, a 35-year-old lawyer who, with his wife, Patsy, founded the Shelter Institute. ”Everyone, deepdown in his heart, knows he can build a house.”
We’re always excited and honored to see our name in local or nationally respected publications. Follow your heart and come join us this summer. Become part of the fun and continuing story. And best of all, become empowered to learn how to build your own home or learn a new and valuable skill.
