Laguna Creek High School Students Build & Donate Tiny House to Homeless Veteran

Laguna Creek High School Students Build & Donate Tiny House to Homeless Veteran

On Tuesday, August 1, 2017, twenty Laguna Creek High School (LCHS) students will put the final touches on their first-ever tiny house construction project to be donated to a homeless veteran. Eager students from the Manufacturing Production Technology (MPTA) and Green Energy Technology (GETA) academies will add the final touches and trim before delivering their gift of a home. Students partnered with industry professionals for the past year to learn how to build a home by reading the blueprints. These student builders framed and insulated the building, hung and finished the drywall, shingled the roof, installed cabinetry, installed the solar-electric system and painted the tiny home inside and out.

The finished tiny home will be unveiled to the public at an open house event on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 beginning at 9:00 a.m. at Laguna Creek High School. The students anticipate completing a second tiny home this fall. Both tiny houses will be delivered to a nearby organization, Kavanah Homes, that offers assistance to veterans.
