A little village of tiny houses for the homeless is taking shape on a plot of land owned by a Lutheran church in Seattle, Washington.
Volunteers gathered in a weekend to build 14 homes. Each one is insulated and has electricity and oil heat. More importantly, a central building houses restrooms and running water–with showers being installed soon.

Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd put up the land for the village — the first of its kind in Seattle.
Each house cost about $2,200 to build and residents will pay $90 a month for utilities.
They will serve as a model for more tiny house villages, and as an alternative to the Nicklelsville encampment, organized by the city for homeless camping.
The houses will provide temporary housing, until occupants can be housed in permanent homes.
“The difference is you have electricity and a lock on the door,” church member Steve Tucker told KIRO News.
The village’s first residents are now moved in and beginning lives under new roofs.
