A small charity group in Madison, Wisconsin is collecting donations and building 98 sq. ft. $3,000 tiny houses on wheels with the area’s homeless.
And it’s not just a hand out since the future tiny home owners labor away to help build their own homes, and hopefully some of their future neighbors homes too.
The houses are really tiny and very basic but they’re bound to make a huge difference in these people’s lives who have never had the chance to own a home in their lives.
With bathrooms and kitchens and a cost of just $3,000 to build I think there’s a huge opportunity to help lots of people get back on their feet and into a better environment to improve their lives.
Because nothing beats simply having a front door to close and be inside a warm home of your own. Occupy Madison is aiming to complete 10 more tiny homes by the end of 2014.
Where are they putting them? Great question! They’ve temporarily arranged parking with local churches until the group finds a permanent location for the homes.

The goal is to obtain a plot of land where they can park around 30 of them.
