More about the Tiny House
Apprentices completed the Tiny House project last month through their community service hours. Reinhold Electric finished the interior electric in this tiny home and the interior cabinets were crafted by the St. Louis Cabinet Makers Apprenticeship program. All materials for this project were donated.
Thanks to Cabinet Makers' Coordinator Jim Clarkin for the interior cabinet construction; to STLCJAP instructors John Mormon, Rico Luna, Vince Bandermann, Ed Doyle, Lynda Drendel; and to all of the Apprentices who helped in the completion of the interior through their community service hours.
In addition, a special thanks goes out to Tammy Ridgely, HBA Staff, VP for Home Shows, who coordinated and scheduled delivery of our Tiny House and provided a great location at this large event.
Stay tuned for updates on this Tiny House's future home.
