Tiny House, Big Ideadrawing of the tiny homes village

The Tiny Homes Village is a collaboration with Cross Disability Services, Inc., (XDS, Inc.), a local nonprofit and the UNC School of Social Work. The project aim is to develop a new affordable housing option for people with mental illness and other health conditions living on a fixed income. The village will include 15 tiny homes. Each tiny home will be about 400 square ft, built on a permanent foundation. Veterans with chronic health conditions will be given priority for 5 of the village’s 15 homes. The Tiny Homes Village will also include community amenities that foster activities and interactions among residents, such as a clubhouse, walking trails and an outdoor pavilion.

Tiny Homes Village is located on the grounds of the UNC Farm at Penny Lane, an alternative therapeutic farm in Pittsboro, NC. This location provides residents with access to healthy food, meaningful daily activities, transportation and physical health and behavioral health services.
