From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

Are you interested in supporting École Secondaire Notre Dame High School and winning a tiny home? Get your tickets today! There are only 1520 tickets available.

The school will be raffling off their tiny home (40’ x 8.5 x 8’) on June 10, 2020. Tickets are $20 each or three for $50. You can purchase your ticket by visiting the school’s front office.

You must be 18 years or older to purchase a ticket. The winner is responsible for all foundational, utility hook-ups and legal documentation needs for the destination site prior to August 31, 2020.

This tiny home is designed and constructed by students at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School. The Design Studies, Building Opportunities and Landscape Design classes have been working together for the past two years to design and construct this home.

Working with professionals in the industry, the Design Studies students have been drafting layouts and building models of the tiny (sea-can) house, while learning the requirements of residential construction.

The Building Opportunities students will start on construction in the second semester and continue to receive hands-on training working on the construction of the sea-can house, alongside a ticketed tradesman.

The Landscape Design students are working with professionals in the areas of architecture, skills and project management to create a living roof for the sea-can house.

“The sea-can conversion brings an innovative project-based learning opportunity. It facilitates cross-curricular and inquiry-based learning by encouraging students in the pursuit of design and trade skills,” said Janna Vandermeer, teacher at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.

The money raised from the raffle will be put towards a future tiny home project and $200 will go to this year’s grad service project.

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.

The Laft Hus celebrates 35 years in Red Deer

Published on

The Laft Hus is a replica of an 18th-century farmhouse in the Numedal district in Norway. It was created through the efforts of volunteers, and it officially opened to the public in 1987.

The museum contains many old artifacts and examples of Norwegian arts and crafts and a small butikk of Norwegian items and the house itself is of note due to its traditional sod roof.

The museum and gift shop are open to visitors every day (except Mondays) from June 1 through to August 31, 9:00 am to 3 pm. For the remainder of the year, the Norwegian Laft Hus is open each Wednesday when a group of ladies meet to work on Norwegian arts and crafts.

This year, the Laft Hus celebrates its 35th year in Red Deer. The annual festival will take place on June 18, 2022 and will have many activities, entertainment, Norwegian food and vendors for the visitors to enjoy. Help us celebrate!
