April Goes to College

Graduate student April Anson is bringing her tiny house to school.

“The final cost of Anson’s tiny house will be between $8,000 and $9,000. She will park it on a piece of family-owned land, where she can get electrical service until she eventually installs solar panels. So-called gray water from sinks and shower will be filtered, and sewage will be pumped out and taken away for disposal. “My plan is to keep working, to make living in the tiny house as self-contained as possible,” she said.”

High School Students Design/Build Project

This is a great story about a class of high school students in Canada designing and building tiny houses. Each student is coming up with a design. Three houses will be built. In the end two will be dismantled and recycled into future projects and one will be sold to raise money for the school. I’m certain this will be just the first of a series of articles on this wonderful school project.
