Description

Tour Date:  June 18th, 2022 – begins at 1 pm

This tour will include a walk about the grounds, exploring the various buildings and features of Blue Rock Station (more detail about what you will see on the tour).

Some salvaged materials destined for the Tiny House.

This tour features some of the many examples of reuse and re-purpose utilized in the buildings at Blue Rock Station. Over the years hundreds of students and interns have contributed to the creativity, whimsy and beauty of the structures.   After a tour and a proper cup of tea learn a bit about the basics of deconstruction, how to store reuse items until use, project planning and more.

Open day tour fees are $20.00 per person (infants and toddlers under 5 are free but this is really not an event intended for children).  Tours take about 3 hours (sometimes longer if there are lots of questions) and will include some light refreshments.  Tours begin promptly at 1 p.m.

Open day tours are limited to 25 people (we can handle larger groups for a private group tour but really would rather not).  Please ensure you will be able to go on the tour before purchasing your ticket.  Most tours sell out well in advance and if your plans change and you can’t make it, let us know so we can give someone else a chance.
