Tiny houses have some obvious benefits: They’re small, efficient, and easy to transport. But this tiny house comes with one more: It’s designed to help sick children.
The miniature craftsman will be auctioned off on July 26 as part of a partnership between the real estate company Re/Max, the architecture school at Henry Ford College, and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals with all of the proceeds from the sale going to CMN Hospitals.
Students at Henry Ford College in Michigan designed, fabricated, and constructed the house, which features some charming details. For starters, there’s the blue pine siding, which gives the house a traditional craftsman feel.
Inside, the 250-square-foot home has butcher countertops, bamboo flooring, a washer and dryer, and a four-burner gas range and stove. The cozy bedroom is lofted and overlooks a living room with a bay window.
Bidding starts on July 26 and runs through July 28. Can’t afford to buy a tiny home yourself? No problem. You can still donate to CMN Hospitals. It doesn’t come with an adorable miniature craftsman, but it will be for a good cause.
