EHS construction career students post in front of a framed shed.

District 196 is looking for a client interested in having a tiny cabin built for them by the Eagan High School construction careers students. You buy the materials, they will build it!

Last year students successfully built their first tiny house and are hoping to expand their skillset again this year. A single tiny cabin will be built during the 2018-19 school year, and all interested clients will be entered into a lottery. Lottery applications will be accepted Aug. 1-15, 2018. The lottery drawing will take place Aug. 16, 2018. Fill out our Google Form to be included in the lottery.

The client selected will be expected to purchase and have materials delivered to Eagan High School by Sept. 30, 2018. The client will also be required to enter into an agreement with District 196 and agree to the terms and conditions of the project.

To learn more about the EHS construction careers program, check out these articles from CBS Local and on the District 196 website.
