|Tiny-house village in late stage of construction.|
rom King 5 News in Seattle, we learn about a village of 15 tiny houses that will open in Seattle on January 4 to provide shelter from cold for homeless people. The village seems cramped, but the homes seem substantial enough. Residents -- which can be one or two people per house -- will pay $90/month per housing unit to cover utilities.
This is something Safe Ground in Sacramento has never been able to accomplish. Perhaps mimicking the Seattle model -- a small community of substantive tiny houses with very responsible residents -- is something that can be done here, in California.
Below, is an altered photograph that shows what the village will look like, placed in a residential community amongst very large houses (some of which may be apartment buildings).
