CONWAY — One hundred percent student-built.
That's the claim the advanced building trades students in the Mount Washington Valley Career and Technical Center at Kennett High School can proudly make about their tiny house, which finished second in a five-school competition at the 50th N.H. State Home Show at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester over the weekend.
The same cannot be said of the winning school, Huot Career and Technical Center of Laconia, which utilized a professional architect, a landscape architect and members of the Lakes Region Home Builders Association to complete its project on time.
In fact, according to an association press release, builders were at the school minus the students.
"Blizzard or not work continues on the Lakes Region Tiny House," it said. "Ray Boelig from Ponders Hollow Custom Wood Flooring & Millwork says, 'We are so close. We are working desperately to get the final steps done.' ... The kids couldn't make it in today but our builders and associates are not wasting time and continue the work even with this snowstorm."
The homes were judged by Gov. Chris Sununu and Sen. Maggie Hassan on Saturday.
