Charles City, IA – A few groups of students at Charles City High School are doing something a little different than traditional classes at school this year. They are building a house.
The Tiny House Program is already a few phases into the project. Art, construction and journalism students have been working on assembling this building. Brian Bohlen, CCHS teacher, says where the idea for this project came from.
Falyn Knecht is a senior at Charles City and she is taking a lot of way from her experience with this project.
It is not just hard work, however. Charles City sophomore, Kaleb Byers, says what he likes about this assignment.
Bohlen says the project is constructed out of cardboard right now, but the actual building of the tiny house will be starting here shortly.
Knecht says that the different groups of students are working well together and that she is excited for it to be finished.
