Review for Yestermorrow Design/Build School, Warren, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I heard about Yestermorrow in a book called The House that Jill Built, which told stories of women who had built their own homes. The first course I took, in September 2008, was Home Design. I loved it--the teachers, my fellow students, connecting with a neglected creative part of myself. I also took a course In England on building a stone wall. And this summer I will be taking Carpentry for Women as well as Rustic Furniture. There are always at least a dozen or more courses that I want to take. I'm now looking for land so that I can start to build my dream home. Yestermorrow is a wonderful, magical place. Experience it for yourself!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Making plans to build my own home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it a little easier to get to using public transportation. That said, I don't really know if there's anything the school can actually do to make that happen.

Role:  Client Served & I've taken two courses at Yestermorrow and will soon be taking two more.
