PRESS RELEASE

Mr. Sam Mento III, President of the Hammonton Board of Education, and Mr. James Ziegler, Industrial Arts Teacher at Hammonton High School, observe delivery of the Hammonton Education Foundation’s grant for a “Tiny House Project” trailer.

Ziegler will supervise the construction process set to begin in September after students first receive training on how to operate tools and machines safely and effectively. Other teachers and students from the Industrial Arts and Technology Department will participate in the Science / Technology / Engineering / Art / Math (STEAM) initiative bringing several disciplines together to experience a “real world” home-building project.

The trailer is 8.5′ wide by 20′ long weighing in at 2,245 pounds with a load capacity of 14,000 pounds. The Tiny House is expected to weigh in at approximately 10,000 pounds when finished. The Tiny House foundational trailer was manufactured in Northglenn, CO, by Trailer Made Custom Trailers, LLC, and then delivered to the high school by Mr. and Mrs. Steines, co-owners of Tiny House Foundations of Centerbrook, CT. Lifting service to the loading dock was expertly performed by tow operator Matthew Williams of Battelini Transport and Towing Service, Buena, NJ, using a 50-ton crane system. Such cranes have the capacity to lift the finished home from the loading dock to ground level in the final phase of the project. The home will then be sold at auction and funds returned to the Hammonton Education Foundation and the high school to support future educational endeavors.”
