Adorable tiny house will be auctioned off for charity

Design for good

Tiny home with blue siding Re/Max

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.

Tiny home kitchen Re/Max

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.
