NICHOLAS COUNTY (WOAY) – Mark O’Dell’s students at the Nicholas County Career & Tech Center are making a big difference in the lives of flood victims by constructing a “tiny” home.
“It’s really a great project for the students. It gives them a lot of experience,” says O’Dell.
The tiny home will sleep six people and features a bedroom, loft area, bathroom and kitchen. While the carpentry and construction skills these students learn are priceless, knowing they’re helping their fellow West Virginians is just as important..
“It makes me feel good because there are people living in tents,” said student Garrett Gumm.
David Clutter, who is also a student at the tech center said, “The flood done a lot of damage.”
And their teacher sees that passion in his students, not only in the quality of their work, but also in their effort.
This group of Mountain State builders also wants to thank the local community for the generous donations they’ve made to make this tiny home a reality.
