The WAHS Tiny House went on the auction block last weekend at a morning event hosted by WAHS parent volunteer and local realtor Rod Phillips alongside school principal Darah Bonham. The 280-square-foot house, built by students in the school’s shop class under the direction of teacher Kevin Matheny, was constructed over the past year with the help of generous donations from local contractors. While the top bidder, WAHS parent and alum Corbin Snow, owner of Snow’s Garden Center, was enthused about the house’s prospects, bids did not reach the school’s hoped-for threshold of $30,000, and the disposition of the Tiny House remains in limbo. The eventual sale’s proceeds will be used to fund the next Tiny House project at the school. Interested buyers are encouraged to call Rod Phillips of RE/MAX in Crozet.
