Building homes from tiny houses: students tour Quixote Village

The Tinny Homes of Quixote Village

A warm day in late June found groups of students being led around a village of two lines of 15 tiny homes on either side. Seven years ago, Quixote Village was a moving camp for people experiencing homelessness, hosted for 90-day stretches by volunteering churches in the community. The 5 week summer class at Evergreen, Tiny Homes, Earthships, and other Innovative Buildings: Design Principles for Low-impact Homes, taught by faculty member Scott Morgan, was looking at how that camp became tiny houses, and how those tiny houses became homes.
