A tiny house built by students at Bemidji State University’s School of Technology, Art and Design (TAD) in Minnesota has become a home. Virginia “Ginny” and Chris Kelly of Stillwater, Minnesota, closed on the house in April 2022 after the project went on the market in July 2021.

The sale of the 206-square-foot tiny house will sponsor a student endowment fund at the university, which started the project in the fall of 2017. The build includes energy-efficient windows, structural insulated panels and rooftop solar panels, as well as the capability to connect to a power grid when necessary.

Professors in the TAD department—along with other university officials and numerous local and regional partners—contributed to the project, including Wanzek Construction, a MasTec company, and ACME tools, both of which are members of Associated Builders and Contractors.
