ACE’s Tiny House project
Tiny House Project
ACE’s Tiny House project builds on the idea of home construction by exposing students to all the essential elements of residential construction while learning energy technologies (renewables) and how to reduce their carbon footprint.
What is a “Tiny House” and Why should you live smaller?
Most Americans dedicate 1/3 to 1/2 of their lifetime income to the structure they live in. That translates to 15 years of working over your lifetime just to pay for your house. As a result, 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
The alternative? Live smaller, of course. Tiny Houses take up less real estate, cost far less money than the average single family home and, most importantly, still give the inhabitants sufficient living space while leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
Sound Fiscal Plans
The Latest in Technology
ACE High School has a long history of being on the forefront of exposing its students to the latest and most innovative technologies and practices the building industry has to offer.
The students actually use student built thermal solar collectors in the Tiny Houses, with teachers monitoring and measuring their effectiveness and feasibility for residential applications… true implementation of environmentally and economically advantageous energy solutions!
In addition to solar power, The Tiny House project also shows participating students the intricacies of house plumbing, wiring, and space utilization.
In short… ACE students plan, build and expedite houses that people will actually purchase and live in!
