About the tiny home builder
Students in HFC's Building Science Department put practical application to their studies during the semester-long tiny home project. HFC students in Architecture and Interior Design collaboratively designed and built the tiny home — participating in all areas of design, from structure to systems, to the selection of interior furnishings with an eye on trendy and unique styles that would draw bidders to the auction.   

"We are incredibly honored to work on this project in partnership with RE/MAX and to know that this home will not only give our students a unique, hands-on opportunity to design and build a real home, but that the auction of the tiny house will help to provide medical care to children in so many communities," said Henry Ford Chair of Building Science, Chad Richert.
