Tiny House Donation
Tuscaloosa, AL (October 13, 2015) As a commercial contractor, J.T. Harrison Construction Co., Inc. is usually not seen fulfilling a residential contractor role. However, at last weeks inaugural West Alabama WOW Career Expo, we stepped outside our comfort zone to build our very first tiny house with the students. The 160 square foot tiny house features a kitchen, bathroom, and living space designed for a sleeper sofa. Special finishes were selected for the tiny house, including a barn door, wooden accent wall and back splash, and rustic, wood flooring. The tiny house construction began on day one of the expo, and was complete by the end of day two. Students were able to assist with building processes such as, painting, masonry, etc.. Today, the final product is being donated to The Salvation Army, who will in turn auction the tiny house. All proceeds will be used by the organization to assist in funding their new facility, which is currently under construction.
