Students who took a Manufacturing and Fabrication class under the Career and Technical Education program offered at Waldport High School designed and then built each element of a Tiny House Shell. The first finished Tiny House Shell is in the parking lot ready to be sold. The Tiny Home is the product from one of the branches of study in the Career Pathways Program at the Waldport High School called Manufacturing and Fabrication. The money raised will go directly back to the school to use to create the next Tiny Home. Ultimately, the Tiny Home projects should be self-sustaining.
According to teacher, Melissa Steinman, students themselves came up with the concept, created the designs with an architect, and selected which would be the best design for what they feel a local client would find to be the most livable. Students were involved in every single detail down to what stain color they preferred. The Tiny Homes construction takes place under the guidance of CTE-certified instructors, Greg Wood and Melissa Steinman who have created many partnerships with local businesses and use a collaborative style with the students.
