Remember the Community First Village we told you about? Well now we want to tell you about The Field’s Edge, founded by a group of people who interned at Community First for four months so that they could replicate the awesome community-based system in Midland, Texas.

This group has been raising funding while finding RVs to house some of their homeless neighbors. They now have the property for their village and everything is coming together!

Construction began on Phase I in March 2021. Phase I includes the Mabee Foundation Community Center which houses The Field’s Edge offices, a behavioral and physical healthcare clinic space, a market, and a multipurpose great room. Also included in Phase I is the first “pod” of homes which includes 9 single-occupant tiny homes for the chronically homeless, one missional home, and a commercial bath, kitchen, and laundry facility that we lovingly call the Bathhouse. Construction of Phase I will be completed in June 2022.

The Village sits on 23.5 acres inside of the city limits of southwestern Midland and will eventually have 10 “pods” of homes, 90 homes for the chronically homeless, and 10 homes for missional residents who voluntarily live on site to help cultivate community.

This is so great! Could your community use a village like this?

Today we’re excited to introduce the beautiful Eclipse Cottages, built with low-maintenance SIP panels and including rainwater catch base filtration systems, greywater reuse systems and other amazing sustainable options! They come with a few layout options and plenty of customization color/finish-wise.

Right now, these cottages are only available to be placed in one of Eclipse’s three tiny house villages in South Carolina, but eventually they will built and ship them to the general public.

Did I say tiny house village? Yes! Stay tuned for a more in-depth post about the communities, but you can head over here and here to learn more about two of them (which are currently taking residents) and here for a third one in production. Tell us what you think in the comments!

Martha had been wanting to go tiny for a long time and one day she came across Randy and Incredible Tiny Homes on YouTube. She stayed up all night watching his videos, found out about his community, got in touch with them, and put down a deposit — all in a couple of days!

She loves her one-floor tiny home, dubbed the “Death Star” by her neighbors. As an avid Star Wars fan, she also loves the name. Most of all, though, she loves the community! Every day she has coffee or lunch or dinner or walks with neighbors who are all living tiny just like she is.

M was one of the first 5 long-term tiny homes that rolled into Acony Bell Tiny Home Community in North Carolina. Her lot abuts two winding creeks on the 56 acres in the community and features not only her professionally-built THOW but her pottery studio as well.

She’s a professional artist and sells her pottery and teaches classes onsite. The walls of her THOW are covered in meaningful art she’s purchased, been given, or created herself. She chose a design without a loft and has no regrets on that front.

Brandy retired just before 2020, and the pandemic set her on a new path to tiny living. She’s honest about her downsize — it hasn’t been easy to purge her items or give up wall space for relatives’ artwork. But she’s also found ways to make the space work for her, including using her downstairs bedroom as an awesome crafting space (I’m jealous!).

She lives in a tiny house community with community gardens and she loves to cook and prepare the food she’s grown and give it to her neighbors. She sounds like someone you’d love living next door to.

Homelessness is a problem in every city in the country, and many times when we see tiny homes we think, “We need more of these for the homeless!” Community First! Village in Austin, Texas took that idea and brought it to life, with 51 acres of property with more than 500 homes for the chronically homeless.

But they’ve gone beyond just building houses — they’ve built a community. Residents find family and friends at the village, as well as work on the premises. There’s an art house, automotive shop, forge, organic garden and so much more designed to give the neighbors at the community purpose. The FAQ page answers tons of questions about the village here.

One of the ways they get revenue for the park is through some tiny house rentals where anyone can stay during a visit to Austin! Check that out here.
