It won't cost $13,000 to build The Hundred Story House. In fact, we estimate that building the House will cost half of that amount.
Our Kickstarter goal of $13k represents the sum total figure to cover ALL project expenses incurred both before and after our Kickstarter campaign. Examples of expenses include -but are definitely not limited to:
Project planning, design and promotion, general liability insurance as is required by NYC Parks department, transportation of sculpture from park to park, on-site installation, on site maintenance, removal, professional documentation, NYC Parks department permit fees, and not to mention the 10% taken off the top by Kickstarter, Amazon and credit card fees, -and we've got to buy and ship the rewards to our backers.
