You might remember the tiny house community that Canadian millionaire Marcel LeBrun was building in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Well, he just placed house #96, meaning they’ve built a house every week since the project started two years ago! Impressive.

While there is still plenty to do, like landscaping and building some of the community structures, it’s a great start to helping the unhoused community in his area. He has been getting requests from folks across the globe on how they can replicate this kind of village! What do you think?
