Tiny House Project

SIERRA COLLEGE STUDENTS.

A ONE OF A KIND TINY HOUSE.

CAMBY JOINING US LIVE FROM CAMPUS WITH A LOOK AT THE PROCESS.

HI.

Reporter: GOOD MORNING.

GET YOUR HARD HAT OUT.

IF YOU SEE PEOPLE WITH HARD HATS AT SIERRA COLLEGE IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY ARE CONSTRUCTION WORKERS HIRED BY THE CAMPUS.

IT USUALLY MEANS THEY ARE STUDENTS THAT ARE GETTING HANDS ON EXPERIENCE.

THEY ARE WORKING ON BUILDING THIS TINY HOUSE.

WE WILL SHOW YOU WHAT IT'S GOING TO LOOK LIKE WHEN IT'S DONE IN JUST A SECOND.

FIRST THIS IS A GREAT PROJECT THAT YOU JUST STARTED.

IT'S YOUR FIRST YEAR.

IT'LL TAKE YOU ABOUT A YEAR TO COMPLETE.

WHAT ARE THE STUDENTS WORKING ON? WITH REBUILDING A FANTASTIC TINY HOUSE.

WE HAVE AN AMAZING AWARD WINNING CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM HERE AND ACTUALLY RIGHT NOW THEY ARE WORKING ON THE ROOF.

THEY ARE GETTING READY TO GO DRY IN.

THEY ARE PREPARING THE ROOF AND THEN OUR NEXT CLASS WILL COME IN AND WORK ON THE ELECTRICAL.

WE HAVE SOME PLUMBING IN ON THE TINY HOUSE RIGHT HERE.

IT'S JUST A FABULOUS PROJECT THAT INCORPORATES MANY OF OUR CLASSES AND OUR CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM HERE AT SIERRA COLLEGE.

Reporter: HOW MUCH OF THIS PROGRAM IS DONE IN THE CLASSROOM AND HOW MUCH IS DONE WITH THIS HANDS ON EXPERIENCE LIKE WHAT WE ARE GOING TO SEE RIGHT NOW? ONE THE NICE THINGS — THE CONSTRUCTION CLASSES HERE IS A LOT OF THEM ARE HANDS ON LAB CLASSES.

THE MAJORITY OF THEM.

WE WILL SPEND TIME LEARNING THE LESSONS IN THE CLASSROOM AND THEN WE WILL — THE TINY HOUSE PROJECT.

THEY WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT ON CAMPUS.

EVERYBODY INVOLVED.

WHEN IT'S DONE.

YOU ARE GETTING TOO SEE IT IN THE BEGINNING THE FRAMING IF YOU WATCH THAT SHOW ON TG TV ABOUT THE TINY HOUSES NOT ALL THEM ARE CONSIDERED TINY HOUSES.

YOU CAN LOOK AND SEE HERE WHAT THIS IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE AT THE END.

THEY WANTED TO HAVE A LAKE TAHOE, MORE OF A RUSTIC FEEL.

WHAT WILL BE ON THE OUTSIDE? WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TONGUE IN GROOVE SIDING.

INSIDE WE WILL HAVE KNOTTY PINE.

WE HAVE ALL STAINLESS STEEL.

FULL SIZED APPLIANCES.

IT'S REALLY GOING TO BE A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE WHEN IT'S DONE.

YOU HAVE DONE STUFF WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY.

NOW THIS IS THE FIRST TIME DOING THIS.

THE PLAN IS EITHER TO AUCTION IT OFF OR WHAT? I WOULD LOVE TO DONATE IT TO FAMILIES IN NEED.

THAT WILL REQUIRE US TO GET A GRANT.

WE ARE PLANNING TO DO ONE EVERY YEAR FROM HERE ON OUT.

Reporter: HERE IS THE CLASSROOM RIGHT HERE.

IN A CLASS THAT DEAL WAS REUSABLE MATERIALS AND THEN NOT ONLY THAT BUT THEY WILL HAVE THE PLUMBING CLASSES COMING IN, AN ELECTRICAL CLASS AND THEN THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY ENERGY FISHMENT HOME.

THEY HAVE A SOLAR PROGRAM HERE AS WELL WHICH IS HOW HE GOT TO THE CAMPUS HERE AT SIERRA COLLEGE.

IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF SPOTS AVAILABLE AND I LEARNED LAST WEEKEND VERY GOOD PAYING JOBS, SOMETIMES UP TO SIX FIGURES DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO.

AND IT'S A TWO YEAR DEGREE.
