High schooler Josiah Bartlett climbs down off the ladder as local electrician Cam Chesbro works on plans for the days work on Wednesday. The construction classes are continuing work on the tiny house that is being built.
Buffalo high schooler Wade Heller helps run the electrical cable through the ceiling beams during class on Wednesday. Heller was one of two students working inside the house on electrical wiring on Wednesday.
Buffalo student Josiah Bartlett pulls the electrical cable through tight before continuing to run it to the end of the house on Wednesday. They ran the cable up from where an electrical switch will sit, through the ceiling over the main area and the lofted area and then back down the side wall.
Electrician Cam Chesbro watch as the students run the cable along the walls of the tiny house on Wednesday. Chesbro’s brother Clark teaches the classes and so Cam comes in to help with the electrical components.
Buffalo student Brandon Sweeney drills in what will eventually be the fuse box on Wednesday. The breakers will sit in the bottom of the box and the box will remain attached to the side of the house closest to the inside loft.
Beyond the hands on learning, students are expected to learn the technical expectations and codes put in place for different elements of the project. One example is of the group Hyram Hatch, Garrett Chamberlain and Hunter Stone learning the expectations for pouring a concrete foundation for the tiny house.
Buffalo High School's construction classes have begun the electrical work on their tiny house. The past few semesters of students have been working on the building of the house. Once the house is complete, it will be auctioned off and the money hopefully used to start the next tiny house.
