Building it Forward at Ashland!

Ashland Tiny House Thumbnail

The students of Ashland Blazer High School have worked all year long to build this tiny home. It’s almost impossible to fathom students building such a structure. The craftsmanship on display is something you’d never expect from a student with only a couple years of experience.

The Ashland students and teachers worked together and brought their blueprints into the physical world. This isn’t an easy feat for students limited by class schedules and other school work. Yet, this home and all the others are proof of the great things students can accomplish in vocational classes. 

The photos and videos do a great job at highlighting the tiny homes, but there is nothing like seeing them in person. If you’re able, then do yourself a favor and tour these tiny homes.


Beginning June 25, prospective buyers may tour the houses in person and be guided by an experienced tradesman. Tours will be available any Tuesday or Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. outside the KVEC offices at 412 Roy Campbell Drive, Hazard, KY 41701 or you may join us for an open house Tiny Home celebration on June 27 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

    Ashland Tiny House 2019

    While starting out with a Dual Axle 14,000 LB trailer purchased from P&J Trailers Sales, LLC in Paintsville, KY, we built an 8' wide x 26' long x 13'-5" Tall Tiny House which only weighs 11,500 LB with a total living space of 255 sq. ft. of storage in the front loft and 10 sq. ft. of outside storage in the utility closet on the back. Spray foam insulation was used in between the trailer beams and we used Advantech flooring as our sub-floor.

    Once the sub-flooring was done, the walls were installed and then the rafters were put into place and attached to a Glulam Ridge Beam 3.125" x 5.875" x 26"

    On the outside, we went with Rustic Cedar Beveled Siding, Jelf Wen Premium Vinyl Awning Windows, and Graber Metal Roofing (Hartford Green) with a Class 4 impact resistance rating.

    On the inside, the walls and ceiling were insulated with batting insulation and Appalachian Red Oak Tongue & Grove Flooring was used for the floor. Appalachian Red Oak T & G 5" wide planks with a reversible pattern were used for the loft floor and ceiling and also used on the walls as wainscoting. The top section of the walls was finished out with 1/2" Oak Plywood.

    There is a 50 amp electrical connection on the outside, which can be changed over to a 100 amp service if need be. All receptacles are wired with a 12-2 wire while all lights are on 14-2 wire.

    The plumbing was overseen by a licensed plumber and was given a final inspection by the county inspector. This house has a Haier 2.0 Ventless Combination Washer and Dryer and an Ascent 2 Macerating toilet system all hooked into the plumbing system. All plumbing lines run to two 6 outlet manifolds with individual shut-off values which are easily accessable.

    It is cooled and heated by a Senville 12,000 BTU Mini Split Air Conditioner/heat pump with a wireless remote.

    There is also a Whirlpool 14.3 cu. ft. top freezer refrigerator, 19-gallon hot water tank, and two 30 gallon propane tanks.
