Big things can come from ‘tiny’ packages. Or, at least in this case, a tiny house.

Students enrolled in Industrial and Arts Department have been making progress on the Tiny House, a project designed to highlight the Science / Technology / Engineering / Art / Math (STEAM) initiative in order to learners to experience a “real world” home-building project.

Funded by the Hammonton Education Foundation and under the supervision of Materials Processing instructor Mr. James Ziegler, the 8.5′ wide by 20′ long trailer. 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.

After serving as a hands-on project for students in the entire Industrial Arts department, 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. The HEF provided $20,000 for the project.

According to an interview with Ziegler in June, “Students will learn the usual carpentry that building a home requires, but now, they will also learn the plumbing, electrical work and so much more of the things that help make a home work.”
