CCHS building strong futures with construction project of tiny house

An unattended and quiet construction site is a waste to those who yearn to work with their hands. Knowing that they can’t come to finish it offers a taunting call to those dedicated to a job’s completion.

Rilee Hauber, 17, felt that acutely in the spring after COVID-19 closed area schools and he could no longer work in Campbell County High School’s woodworking and construction workspace. The tiny house he and his classmates were building from the ground up would go unfinished.

What a great project for the students at CCHS! This will teach every aspect of housing construction from designing an efficient small space through building walls, plumbing, electrical, and roofing. It should also give these young people ideas for their own business constructing tiny houses. I have followed the tiny house movement for several years and I believe that with the current affordable housing crisis there is a big future for tiny houses for many people.
