The public came out on Sunday December 18 to see the tiny home before it shipped out. The house was built by Skip Lantz’s high school Carpentry class with help from several students throughout the school. Mountaineer Kitchens & Baths provided many of materials and even some labor to help outfit the home.

It was a cold and windy day, but visitors who toured the tiny home quickly forgot about the weather. One small heating and cooling unit kept the house warm and cozy even as the wind howled outside. The house will be a great relief to the flood victims of Southern West Virginia currently living in tents.

Visitors frequently expressed how impressed they were with the quality and craftsmanship displayed in the house. This is no mere shelter. This house will provide a much needed feeling of home to a family of three. Mr. Lantz is working in partnership with Habit for Humanity. The organization is so impressed with the school’s quality and speed, they are hoping to increase the number of homes produced next school year.
