Big Hearts give Tiny Homes

Hello and welcome back!  Today’s topic is one that I would like to shine a little light on in that tiny homes can be a good thing.  This past summer, a huge flood hit parts of West Virginia and destroyed many many homes leaving families with nothing but a mess to clean up.  This is close to my heart as this occurred very close to where I called home for about 10 years.  You can find out more info about the flood here: http://wvflood.com/Pages/default.aspx

The Department of Education and West Virginia got together to create the Big Hearts Give Tiny Homes project in which the career and technical schools within the state built 15 tiny houses for the flood victims….in about 30 days!

You can read about the project here:

They showcased the finished houses at the National Guard property earlier this week. Tiny houses often get a bad rep for various reasons (some of which are legit) but this shows how they can be used for good.   Well done, West Virginia. =)
