I have been working nearly full time for nearly two weeks now! I do find it a bit difficult to manage a regular work schedule after years of retirement. Also construction is hard on a soft old body like mine. But I am one of a team of RoseWind volunteers building an 8’x12′ tiny house for transitional housing, and we have made good progress. Most of us are building, but we also get moral support and regular refreshments from other RoseWind supporters!
The tiny house, aka “tiny wooden bedroom”, that we build will be moved to a final location TBD. It will be one of several cabins in a small village. Residents will share a restroom & bath house, and a minimal kitchen. The new village will be the second one in our area, and it will provide transitional housing for homeless individuals. Residents will have help, but will need to participate in managing their new community. The hope is the stay will temporary, while while residents seek financial stability through jobs, social security, etc. and find longer term housing.
These tiny cabins are indeed tiny, but are dry, secure, insulated, with lights and heat. The door locks, there are operable windows, and there will be built in furnishings: a bed platform, shelves, wardrobe, and small desk.
There are some fun aspects to building a tiny house for transitional house. We get to do a bit of decorating, and we have named our tiny wooden bedroom “Tucked Inn”. I made this little sign for Tucked Inn.
