Last December, we told you about nine high school students who were building a tiny house for charity, while learning skills in construction. Now the project is complete and it’s time to raffle off the house to help seniors and others in need.

The City of Boise Thursday celebrated the opening of a new apartment complex for low-income seniors. It’s called the Vineyard at Eagle Promenade, though it’s actually in Boise just across the road from Eagle. The City of Boise helped pay for the 30-unit project along with several partners, including the Idaho Housing and Finance association and New Beginnings Housing which has other low-income housing in Nampa, Caldwell and Hailey.
