As many people decide to downsize, tiny houses are becoming more and more popular across the country. Students from Erie 1 Boces have been hard at work building a tiny house that will be featured as a “Tiny Guest House” alongside the Design Home at this year’s Buffalo Home Show.
You will be able to tour the tiny house and get a peek at just how easy it is to make the most of a small space without sacrificing function, comfort and style. The student-built tiny home will be auctioned off in June - more details to come! All proceeds from the auction will support the building trades program at Erie 1 Boces and will also fund 2017’s tiny house build.
