Tiny homes built by local students sold

Seniors from Northside ISD's Construction Careers Academy built tiny homes

SAN ANTONIO – While the homes are small, the event Saturday to sell them drew in large crowds.

Over the course of the year, seniors from Northside ISD's Construction Careers Academy built the tiny homes. The largest home was just under 300 square feet.

Lines of people packed into the homes to try and get a look at what they had to offer. There were lofts for beds, a kitchen, a bathroom and living area.

In all, three homes were sold Saturday, priced between $39,500 and $52,000.

Operation Tiny Home was one of the buyers. The agency decided to donate the home to Freddy Rosario, a veteran injured in combat.

"I was amazed. First off, I was amazed that high school students built, you know, built the exterior and stuff," Rosario said. "These tiny homes are amazing. I mean, they really are."
