VIU, YukonU students design tiny homes

Students at two university campuses are developing their skills by building tiny homes for members of their local communities. At Vancouver Island University’s Cowichan Trades Centre, students are working on a tiny home for a customer in Saanich. VIU Instructor Andrew MacLeod explained that the project offers more hands-on experience than a typical job site and added that he hopes that this project is the first of many. At Yukon University, students in the House Maintainer Program recently sent their latest accomplishment—a one-bedroom tiny home—to its permanent location in the Takhini River subdivision. “We’re meeting the needs of Yukon’s labour force and we’re doing what we can to address the housing crisis,” said YukonU President Dr Lesley Brown.
