Digital Original: Tiny home being auctioned to help provide veteran with mortgage-free home

Local News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A tiny house at the Clinton Presidential Center will be auctioned off on Thursday at 2 p.m. to help provide a mortgage-free home to a wounded veteran in Conway. 

Bret Franks was asked by the Clinton Center to build a tiny house for the “White House Green Building” exhibit. 

“This project was a labor of love for me,” says Franks. “These little unique projects are something we love to do and as we built this house six months ago it just kept getting better and better in my mind.” 

Franks Construction is proud to partner with Operation Finally Home a nonprofit providing custom-built, mortgage-free homes to America’s military heroes and the widows of the fallen service members. 

“I loved it as it came together and every time I come down here and show people what we’ve done I fall in love with it some more,” Franks explains. “I am going to hate to see it go but it’s for a great cause.” 

The tiny home is a fully green structure, so the ecological footprint will be minimal. The appliances are all eco-friendly. Even the insulation is from recycled denim jeans, according to Franks. 

A reserve of $35,000 is on the house. Anyone interested in purchasing the miniature home must come with a $10,000 cashiers check on Thursday to confirm the bid. The reserve fund will allow the construction company to take the house apart, move it and rebuild it in the place of the winner’s choosing.
