Tiny House, Big Impact

BALLSTON SPA — Tuesday, May 22, the Ballston Spa High School technology department unveiled their two years in the making “tiny house” project and their new partnership with the Malta VETERANS Appreciation Program. 
The three years young program is run entirely through volunteer work and the partnership with the Ballston Spa school district is expected to enable a significant outcome in the years to come. “We’d like to say thank you to all the contributors. This was not a small project by any means. This whole community jumped in on a bandwagon in about 35 seconds of hearing about the project,” stated Renee Farley, Chairperson of the Malta VETERANS Appreciation Program. 
Jared Marcantoni, the technology teacher at Ballston Spa High School and his students spent two years demolishing a 1978 travel trailer and constructing it into a fully functioning tiny house which will serve as a home for a deserving veteran, which was purchased by the Malta VETERANS Appreciation Program. 
The Ballston Spa school district will continue to partner with the Malta VETERANS Appreciation Program to provide students with authentic work-based learning opportunities that benefit the community.
