If you’re in the market for a home that’s environmentally friendly, and your budget and need for personal space is minimal, the Kennewick School District may have the place for you.

Two tiny houses built by students at Tri-Tech Skills Center are to join the desks, textbooks, vehicles and other items the Kennewick School District declared as surplus for sale.

One of the houses requires only a minimum bid of $7,000, but was built as a prototype and needs work to make it livable, said construction trades instructor Tony Milewski.

Students are still working on the other. When complete, it will come with all the comforts of home — albeit in less than 200 square feet — running on solar power and propane. Minimum bid? $22,000.
