Home, tiny home! SUNY Delhi construction professor Gary Brackett shows where the kitchen will be in the tiny homes his students are building on behalf of Otsego County, where they will help house homeless men.

 

DELHI – For the students in Gary Beckett’s Construction Management classes at SUNY Delhi, this year’s project is a chance to help change the lives of people in desperate situations. “Usually we just build sheds for people in the community,” he said. “These will help people get on their feet.”
Beckett’s classes – along with students in the electrical, carpentry and plumbing trades – are building “tiny houses” to help combat Otsego County homeless.
“The county spends a million dollars a year housing the homeless,” said Senior Planner Eric Scrivener in the Otsego County Planning Department. “We’re sending them to motels for $65 a night, where they have no supervision and no case management.”
