For structures that aren’t terribly large, tiny homes can occupy a lot of mental real estate for a lot of people. The reasons for that are numerous: you can admire tiny houses for their innovative designs, or you might be fascinated with the ways they can make home ownership affordable. (Or both.)
A new endeavor in Kentucky serves as another reason for the popularity of tiny homes: they have the potential to benefit some of the least fortunate in society, changing their lives for the better.
Ben Tobin at the Louisville Courier Journal reports that a tiny home community designed to benefit homeless veterans will break ground next year. The project is based in the Louisville area; Tobin writes that “[t]he community, called Camp Restoration, will consist of 25 tiny homes, a community center, offices and a spiritual wellness center on land off Dixie Highway near Stuart Avenue.”
The Courier Journal reports that the groundbreaking is scheduled for early next year, with construction slated to begin in the spring. The total cost is estimated to be $3.5 million; while some donations have already been received, including the land where the community will be based, Harrell is still at work to raise the money to complete the project.
It’s an ambitious project, but one that has the potential to do a lot of good — and to inspire similar efforts around the country.
