BENEFITING: HABITAT FOR HUMANITY INTERNATIONAL INC
My name is Ben Brown. I am building a tiny house with Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity. Like many areas of our country, the Kalamazoo region has a huge need for housing. Tiny houses can play a role in meeting that need, simply, affordably, and elegantly in a variety of situations with a variety of people. I am impressed that Habitat and the City of Kalamazoo are partnering with me to make the construction and purchase of my own tiny house possible.
In the housing market, tiny houses could be an additional choice for the single, retired or small households who simply value a modest lifestyle, who want to devote less of their income to housing and more to savings and/or quality of life.
While some funders making a Habitat purchase easier have stepped up to the plate, others are unsure if there is sufficient interest in tiny houses. Without a completed, viable, and legal example, it is difficult to justify the case of endorsing tiny houses to these and other organizations.
Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity needs donations to help fund this ground breaking project. Consider donating and opening doors for affordable tiny housing.
