    We would like to help and would like to help design some to look like log homes. We have the wood cut already and they are very quaint.

  4. […] Over the past year OM Build has been busy creating the nation’s first neighborhood based tiny home village with and for some of our [formerly] homeless community members. It is has been a long, difficult, and expensive journey so far and we have one major hurdle left before we can move houses onto our new village/workshop property… we need you to help us raise $100,000. The requirements for occupancy include handicap accessible restrooms, a new roof, removal of much of the parking lot, new curb cuts and a great deal of construction utilizing a contractor. This is very expensive stuff. We are so close, we have come so far, and we are all very excited to move onto the next phase of creating our ground-breaking community. Please consider making a generous donation (and spreading the word)! Checks can be made out to Occupy Madison Inc and sent to P.O. Box 949, Madison, WI 53701.
