Students at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences built this 144-square-foot tiny house which is now for sale for $11,000 or best offer.

It might be turned into a mobile home for camping or summer road trips. Or, it could become a hot dog stand.

The 144-square-foot home on wheels built by students at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences (CHSAS) two years ago has been used for several school projects, but now the school is selling its “tiny house.”

The asking price is $11,000, school officials said, but they’re willing to negotiate.
The house was built for the school’s 2015 flower and garden show, officials said, but plans to continue using it for other purposes haven’t worked out.

“There was talk of keeping it and using it for out-of-town guests—sometimes we have exchange students,” said Jim Slee, CHSAS agricultural mechanics teacher. “But, it wasn’t feasible, so they decided somebody could make better use of it.”

The house’s interior includes a kitchen sink, a kitchen table and a bathroom, although the school said the toilet currently isn’t operable; for an additional $1,000, they will work with the buyer to install a working toilet.

A loft with a bed is above the kitchen table.

According to the school, the house can sleep four or five people and has a porch with stairs.
