Engineering students at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology are looking at the possibility of tiny homes to help Rapid City's homeless population, reports the Rapid City Journal.
The Tiny Homes Team is a branch of the Engineering Projects in Community Service program, and are partners with the non-profit group Western South Dakota Community Action Agency. The group hopes to have a prototype tiny home for this project by next spring. Currently, they are researching designs, materials and local building policies and ordinances.
