Tiny House

Floyd County Area Technology students built this “Tiny House” for 2019 Tiny House Auctions, which continue through July 16. For details, visit, theholler.org/auctions.

A “Tiny House” built by Floyd County Area Technology students is among several that will be sold online this month.

The Kentucky Valley Education Cooperative is seeking bids online through 3 p.m. on July 16 in the 2019 Tiny House Auctions.

In its third year, the program is part of the cooperative’s “Building it Forward” program that teaches students skills in carpentry, welding, electricity, design and budgeting.

Floyd County Area Technology students built this year’s Tiny House with energy efficient appliances and windows and a split air-conditioning system. 

It offers 302 sq. ft. of total living space with two lofts, waterproof laminate flooring and oak stair treads. 

All homes featured on the online auction are sold “as is,” and the majority of the proceeds from the sale will be reinvested back into the school’s program to pay for next year’s Tiny House project. 

On June 27, the annual “Tiny House Cookout” was held at Roy Campbell Drive in Hazard, adjacent to the KVEC office on Roy Campbell Drive. 

During the event, community members were able to tour seven tiny houses up for auction. 

The online auction may be accessed at, theholler.org/auctions.

The public may tour Tiny House projects that are available for sale on any Tuesday or Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the KVEC offices, located at 412 Roy Campbell Drive in Hazard. 

For more information, call Danny Vance at, (606) 765-9743.
