A team of construction management students from Lyles College of Engineering dedicated multiple semesters, class time and weekends to the research, design and implementation of the Fresno State Tiny House Project. Throughout the build, they were joined by several student and community volunteers who committed their labor and resources to complete the home, and students from Fresno State’s Media, Communications and Journalism Department helped promote the project.
The 190-square-foot, eco-friendly tiny house traveled to Cosumnes River College in Sacramento to be judged during the Sacramento Metropolitan Utility District tiny house competition in October. The house was judge in several categories, including architecture, energy efficiency, home life and communications.
“This project makes Fresno State unique since most construction management programs don’t include full-scale, hands-on builds. Plus it’s a great way for students to learn that the building process can be challenging, even on the simplest projects,” Brad Hyatt, Chair of the Construction Management Department said.
