How We Build

The Guild partners exclusively with other non-profits who want a special structure built with our proven model of community-fueled construction. We identify projects that would not otherwise get funded but are seen as important community services. Each year we undertake a small number of projects to provide education to both our professional and our novice members, and to the local community at large. Building on site offers participants a profound sense of place.

These videos from a project for the John C. Campbell Folk School illustrate how a project unfolds.
