According to this article by Heather Cha at Yahoo Makers, Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation is partnering with FYI’s Tiny House Nation to build their first tiny house in New Orleans.

Brad Pitt founded the Make It Right Foundation in 2007 with the purpose of providing affordable housing for people and communities in need. This particular tiny home project is set to sell for under $100,000. It measures 28-by-12.5 feet and offers about 430 sq. ft. of interior space.

The team is working hard to finish the tiny home by August 28th and a local school teacher will be moving into it. What do you think of the Make It Right foundation building tiny in New Orleans? Pretty cool, right? Either way please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This tiny shotgun cottage in New Orleans has about 400 sq. ft. of space with one bedroom. When you walk inside you’re in the living area and open kitchen. Continue walking to the back to find the bedroom and bathroom.

There’s also some yard space in the back to enjoy the outdoors, BBQ, or garden. If you’re staying in New Orleans this cottage is available as a vacation rental in the area, but if you could, would you build one similar to it for yourself on your own land?
