The photo above shows a tiny home village under construction by Occupy Madison. With help from numerous community groups, Occupy Madison has built nine tiny houses, a day resource center, laundry facilities and a community gardening space in the village. The 96 square foot homes are made from reclaimed and recycled materials and include a bed, a toilet, propane heat and solar panels for electricity. Each building costs around $5,000 to build and the money was raised with private donations.
“Walking With A Purpose Minnesota has helped serve the homeless who live in the wooded areas by walking to them and bringing them some of their basic necessities on a weekly basis. One step at a time we are making a difference.”
