Austin to Shelter Homeless in a Tiny House Village

“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.…”

    I think that this is a wonderful thing to happen…….I have wondered why this cannot be done for victims of disaster as it would be quick to build Tiny Houses when there is a need, I know the NEED is NOW, 'a wonderful think it is'

    This is awesome! My daughter lives in Austin, TX. It's an expensive place to live when you are on your own. She pays close to $1800 a month for rent + her share of the utilities in a 3 bedroom home. In order to live there she has to do without a car because that would be one more expense. Her transportation costs still end up close to $300 a month in bus and cab fare. I wish there were something like this close to the downtown area where she works. There is a lot of run down areas not only in Austin, but also in other major cities that could be turned into Tiny House neighborhoods. I wish I had the funds to start something like this.
