This is the Scupper tiny house on wheels designed and built by Marblehead High School students in Massachusetts.

On the outside you’ll notice the gable-roof house has been primed with grey paint so the new owner’s can pick their favorite color.

The interior is unfinished, but the students assembled the framing, walls, windows, doors and the paneling. The house is 116 sq. ft. and has two lofts inside. It’s available for purchase by bid, and the official bidding starts today. See below for more details.

Students designed the tiny house in teams, using AutoCAD and Sketchup software. They created floor plans, elevations, framing, and detail drawings. Drawings are reviewed by an architect, structural engineer,  electrician, plumber and carpenters and built to code as possible.

The Scupper will be sold to fund the following year’s tiny house.

    I totally agree with Gale, about young people getting real life skills. I find too many of them have too much time on their hands and getting into trouble.
    Good job guys! Keep it up, you are doing good!
