All the finishing touches on a student built Project Tiny House are complete with proceeds from the sale going to a good cause in August.

The energy-efficient home, based on the reality television series Tiny House Nation, is worth about $35,000.

The fundraiser supports a non-profit that helps out the elderly, disabled and low-income families in both Ada and Canyon counties.

High school students in Wilder were dedicated to getting the job done.

"They're able to take this Tiny House and, basically, own it," says Matt Jones with Metro Community Services. "And, they've been working on it for the whole year and just to see it come about in the way that it did is just pretty incredible." 

You can tour the tiny home and purchase tickets on Tuesday in Caldwell following the Fourth of July parade.

Only 1,000 tickets are being sold. The winner will be drawn in August.
