Tiny house to be raffled off


The construction technology department at Texarkana College is building a tiny house which will soon be raffled off for Court Appointed Special Advocates, also known as CASA.

The one hundred eighty square foot house is built on a trailer.  Construction technology coordinator Michael Lee called it a functional space.  “There’s nothing you’re going to miss being in a tiny home, just have to do everything on a little bit smaller scale.  

The tiny house has a two-burner stove, small refrigerator, and a microwave.  It even has a table, which will fold down.  Lee said, “It’s on hinges and you’ve got a single leg that’ll come up as you pull your table up, it has a notch underneath, set that in place and now you’re ready to eat dinner!” 

The master bedroom is located upstairs and has a queen size mattress.  An extra room downstairs will accommodate a twin mattress. 

The little place is set to be raffled off on April 15th with proceeds to benefit CASA.  The non-profit organization assist children in the foster care system.  Lee calls in a win-win for CASA and Texarkana College students.  “We give them know how and we give them the manpower, the student power, to be able to put this together, so it’s a great idea.”
