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

The Eagan High School construction careers students continue to perfect their home building skills and are once again looking for a client to purchase their latest tiny residence. For the second year, the district is seeking a buyer to purchase materials while the students do the work

A single tiny cabin will be built during the 2019-20 school year, and all interested clients must submit an application and be entered into a lottery. Lottery applications will be accepted May 1-15, 2019. The lottery drawing will take place May 16, 2019. 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. 1, 2019. 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 Eagan construction careers program, check out these articles from CBS Local and on the District 196 website. You can also follow the construction process on the construction careers blog.
