When fifth- and sixth-graders at Torrey Hills School were challenged to find housing options for the homeless, veterans and elderly, they started by thinking small. Really small. In fact, their solutions fit into less than 500 square feet. As part of a math and design project, 105 students at the Carmel Mountain campus teamed up to make scale models of tiny homes for people with mobility issues, mental disabilities and other needs. They will eventually build full-scale models, and lobby to include tiny homes in county housing plans.
