The Tiny Homes program at Santa Barbara, San Marcos, and Dos Pueblos high schools will get a $25,000 boost from the district this fall. Since last year, Advanced Woodworking and Construction Technology students have been building the 230-square-foot dwellings — each complete with a bathroom, kitchen, solar panels, and a loft for a queen-size bed — on top of transportable trailers. The homes are expected to be finished by next summer, to be auctioned off to finance subsequent builds. The program was launched last year with a $50,000 grant from the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara, orchestrated by the TRADART Foundation for career development.
