Plans

We currently don’t have plans to share.  We built the first house, are working on the second one.  We took a break, redesigned the third house and are beginning that as of Martin Luther King Jr Day 2014.  Once we have built the third house we will make the plans available.  Sign up below to get notification of the plans being done or to ask specific questions about the houses.

    What hoops does one have to jump through to get a piece of land to put 30 of these portable homes on? It seems like it would have to be a unincorporated piece of land.

  2. Churches properties are another great place for these developments. In Seattle there is a city-funded project to get churches to allow for “safe parking” of overnight vehicles in their lots to help people who are living in their cars or RVs. Religious organizations can get around a lot of codes when it comes to sheltering homeless people by claiming that it is a part of their faith to welcome and care for neighbors in need without government interference. You can even have a church lease a piece of property for $1 to make it part of their tax-exempt estate. http://madronagrace.org/ministries/nimby/

    I believe this is a great way to get the homeless community back on their feet along with counseling n childcare

    Are these available to anyone or just the homeless?

    Images of exteriors, interiors and the area surrounding each home would greatly enhance this website.

  6. What a treasure to have found you. I am a homeless man in Dallas, TX. For two years now I have been asking myself, why not here? And with the help of my friends and church I believe we are well on our way to making the Trinity Dignity Community a reality in Dallas.

    We are still in our infancy of this endeavor, but the need and the love of friends will see this through, no doubt. I have toyed with numerous plans for micro houses. Yet, I seem to be stymied at the electricity, running water, sanitation issue. And find away to keep the costs affordable. I could go on and on about the logistics of this, but you no doubt have been down this road. I sure would be blessed to hear from you. And certainly welcome any advice you might be able to offer.

    Respectfully,
