Technical schools are such a great option for students and can give them amazing hands-on skills to take into the workplace! Milton Hershey School has their students building a tiny home for a local campground, and maybe someday these kids can build their own tiny homes.
In the video below you’ll hear from some of the students, and we hope to follow up once they’re done so you can all see the finished product.
In the Fall 2016, 20 design students competed for the chance to have their designs come to life. From there, outside contractors, architects, and builders thoroughly evaluated each design, choosing the best options that would be suitable to build.
Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thanks!
After raising the initial funds to create the shell (about $6,000) via Go Fund Me, Olson constructed the home in his spare time and will donate it to Fellowship Community, a local nonprofit who will use it to house foreign exchange students learning how to care for the elderly.
Watch Lohud’s interview with Olson below, and read the full story about his project here. If he raises any more money, he might even work on finishing some of the interior!
This is a student-built Lee Tiny House that’s up for online auction.
The students at the Lee County Area Technology Center, located in Beattyville, KY, have built a Tiny House with the grant funding they received from KVEC’s Building It Forward project. Now completed, the Tiny House is up for online auction. The link to the online auction is here. The funds from the sale go back to the Lee County ATC for students to do another Tiny House project next year.
Upwards of $50,000 in labor and supplies was donated by community members, businesses and sponsors to fund the students’ amazing project, and I must say this is probably the most beautiful student-built tiny home I’ve seen! It includes high-end appliances, a very cozy seating room, a functional kitchen and a loft bedroom.
Like many student-built homes, this one is for sale, but it’s being sold via online auction (now closed). You have until May 3 to make your bid right here, and the house is going for $24,600 (sold for $44,898) at the time of publication. You can visit the home at different Oklahoma locations outlined on their tour page here.
