MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Charleston Home Builders Association (CHBA) has partnered with the Wando High School Engineering and Architect Departments during the 2017-2018 school year for a 3-phase project which will result in students building a Tiny House under the guidance of members of the CHBA.
The winning student will also receive a $6,000 college scholarship as a result of the chosen home from Phase 2 of the project which will take place at Wando High School on December 12, according to a news release.
The students will present their Tiny Houses to a panel of judges, focusing on the inside of the home.
Phase 1 of the project took place in October 2017 as students formed teams to create the outside of the Tiny House. The judges chose three homes from a selection of over twenty for Phase 2. The winning Tiny House on December 12th will be the home built over a two week summer camp during Phase 3 in Summer 2018.
The Tiny House has already been purchased by a local farmer and teacher at Wando High School for a 1-acre agriculture educational demonstration farm off SC-41, and will provide housing for one college student each semester studying Sustainable Agriculture.
