In the News (Here and Elsewhere): "Tiny House" Village for Homeless

Occupy Madison's 'tiny house' village plan embraced by some neighbors, cops not sold. (Capital Times, 1/16/2014)

The plan is to construct a cluster of eleven 99-square-foot homes in the Emerson East neighborhood of Madison.

Much more ambitious than the Madison plan.  In Austin, Texas, a project to offer affordable housing to some 200 chronically homeless citizens is on the move. Community First! Village, which has been in the planning stages for nearly 10 years, is set to soon break ground on a 27-acre property sprinkled with tiny houses, mobile homes, teepees, refurbished RVs, a three-acre community garden, a chapel, a medical facility, a workshop, a bed and breakfast, and an Alamo Drafthouse outdoor movie theater.
