High School Student Built Tinies

Tour & Bid!

Construction Careers Academy is hosting its third annual CCA Parade of Homes Build Competition. As part of the Academy’s advanced curriculum 4 teams of high school students were challenged to work together to design, engineer, and construct a fully functional Tiny Home. 

The tiny homes will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Auction will begin at 11am.

The event will include:

  • Tiny house community & industry speakers (like TrailerMade Trailers & us!)

  • Silent auction for the purchase of student projects (sheds, deer blinds, etc)

  • A preview of next year’s build

  • Food trucks

Teams comprised of student engineers, architects, construction managers, plumbers, carpenters, HVAC and electricians will work together to build 4 fully functioning tiny homes. Houses include approximately 152 square feet of living space--not including any loft accommodations. All homes are fully functional i.e. utilities, bathroom, kitchen, sleeping area, etc. Each includes an outdoor living component.

Teams faced the same challenges construction companies face each day in the industry i.e. codes, permits, inspections, banking, scheduling, troubleshooting, materials acquisition, etc.

The final houses were even inspected to by a city building inspector, and they passed! Based on the IRC 2015 building code.
