This is a 300 sq. ft. Ness City High School Student-Built tiny house that’s for sale.


Ness City is a remote Kansas town home to just 1,440 people and 150 public school students, but that didn’t stop this handful of construction class students from achieving their dream of building a tiny home!

The house features two lofts, a spiral staircase, oak cabinetry and even concrete counters! You can read more about the students and the build from the Kansas Agland and the Topeka Capital-Journal.

    Great job students!! I see a bright future for you all!!! I love your build and the style!

    Congratulations on a job well done. I love the way each person gets to comment on one section. If the camera was held horizontal you would score 100%. The stairs are unique and seem to work very well. It would be interesting to get more information on how you did that.

      Yes those stairs are too cool! And I do wish the video was horizontal 🙂

    Really beautiful house- they did an excellent job! I love when schools build tiny houses. Not sure if there were any girls in the class but I do wish there were.

    Ness City… 1440 people? Good grief in New Zealand it used to be 20,000 people before you could call it a city but the government amended that to 50,000 people.

    Makes me wonder if there is a city in the States with 4 or 5 people… /smh

    But… congrats to the students on a job well done. But… I wouldn’t have used concrete for the counter. That’d kill the fuel consumption of any vehicle unlucky enough to have to tow it someplace.

      In the states they determine “village,” “town,” “city” etc. based more on your type of local government than your size, haha. I live in a “town” of 60,000 people, and I went to college in a “city” of 8,000 (with the students included).

      Yes Eric, we do have cities in the US with a couple of people in them. Mostly, they’re older cities that have died out with a few stragglers left behind. But, they don’t lose their status. We pretty much refer to them as towns though.

    Wow, I’m impressed that high school students constructed this home. I especially like that they didn’t skimp in the kitchen by using open shelving. Real cabinets with doors works best every time. The house looks great.

    I have one question though. With the concrete counter tops and siding, doesn’t that increase the weight of the home significantly?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 31, 2017, 9:30 am

      I’m sure it does increase the weight. The question is just if it increases the weight too much — I suppose if the rest of the structure is light-weight enough it won’t matter as much 🙂
