Southeastern Holds Raffle for its First “Tiny House”

A local tiny house, fully equipped with electrical wiring, heating, plumbing, and all the amenities of a comfortable home, is being raffled off this month through Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School.  Tickets are $30 and the tentative drawing date is May 31.

The house will be on display this Thursday, May 18, at Raynham Park from 4 p.m., as part of the Wheels of Time Cruise Night, and the public will be able to tour the house and buy raffle tickets.  The house will also be open for touring next Tuesday and Wednesday, May 23 and 24, at the school during school hours (until 2 p.m.).  Tickets can be purchased at the school office or by calling the school at 508-230-1259.  Proceeds will benefit the school’s Travel Club, which is planning a trip to Japan during the 2018 school year.

The tiny house was built by vocational students at the school’s new Makerspace facility, which is designed for student-led projects.  It is on wheels and it includes a bathroom, kitchen, loft bedroom with a convertible couch (living space converts to sleep area), heat, air conditioning, a convection oven, a gas-run refrigerator, and a built-in kitchen table with stools.
