In this post you’ll learn about a group of students who took part in a tiny house carpentry program at Carcross/Tagish First Nation in Carcross, Yukon.

This is an initiative that took place in 2014 in partnership with government and non-government organizations who helped put it all together. Every morning the students meet in class and in the afternoon they go to the job site to put their knowledge to work. Together they’re building tiny houses from start to finish.

The best part is, the results and experiences that the students now have as well as the positive difference it’s making in their lives right now. If you agree that we need more tiny house construction learning programs please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you.
