A Slovakian firm called DesignDevelop has created a triangular tiny house design on stilts that can be used in conjunction with a billboard ad as housing for the homeless. Right now it’s called The Gregory Project.
And like me, I think you’ll be surprised as to how nice the interior design of these units might be. Inside you’ll find a loft bed with storage, a bathroom, kitchen, and desk space too. Enjoy and re-share below.
There’s a lot we don’t see that goes on unnoticed and I believe this film gives us all a glance at why affordable housing is so important. And why tiny housing for the homeless is so important. And why standing up to laws that are unjust like building codes is so important.
In this particular case, we see a community of homeless people taking care of themselves without the help of government funding. And sadly, they end up arrested and mistreated by the authorities. Not only that, but they also have destroyed their homes.
In case you’re able and wanting to help I wanted to show you how but obviously please don’t feel obligated because I really just want to show you how amazing this is.
So enjoy the article and photos below and re-share this post if you feel drawn to do so because it’s a great opportunity to help spread the Tiny House Movement in the way that truly helps those in need.
I’ve been covering tiny houses and other smaller and alternative types of housing for the last few years and I can say that it’s easy to find great examples of small homes every day.
What bothers me is that the majority of what I find is the opposite of affordable housing. It’s normally boutique hotels, places to go “glamping”, and/or expensive real estate in highly populated areas.
And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of that. I think it’s great that there are all of these ways that people who aren’t in need can explore and discover housing that might one day make their lives better through simplicity.
And all of this helps lead to making our world better (environmentally, socially and economically). But now, more than ever, there seems to be a dire need for truly affordable and smarter housing. And in this area of Austin, Texas, one man is leading the way to accomplishing that right now.
The goal? To help get 200 people back on their feet and out of homelessness.
