Village with tiny houses for the homeless students from Seattle


Students from Seattle want to build a village with tiny houses for the homeless.

Care for the homeless is a noble and necessary cause. But most of all for the homeless organized points of distribution of food. At the same time, homeless people should be able, for example, shelter from different weather conditions. Sawhorse Revolution, a Seattle non-profit company, which for a couple with high school student volunteers hopes for a gradual influx of finances in their new construction of "the mobile eco-villages" for the city's homeless residents.

The proposed shelters will be developed and implemented for local high school students, under the guidance of architects, engineers and builders. Founded by Adam Nishimura (Nishimura Adam) as an educational program to teach adolescents specific skills in the real world, Sawhorse Revolution aims to build a portable, sustainable shelter for homeless Nickelsville, formally, a self-governing camp, which has been around since 2008 (there are several official Parking lots around Seattle).

The project dubbed "the impossible city" (the Impossible City) and as a Sawhorse Revolution explains on the indiegogo page, these tent cities are needed as chaste safe residential facilities for vulnerable segments of the population:

Taking anywhere from 40 – 100 people at one time, these encampment vital to help the homeless who will have the opportunity to stand up with them. Needs at the camp sites are large, as the tent cities will be forced to move every 3 to 12 months, with very limited facilities, besides being under an hour outside the network.

Still, Sawhorse Revolution has already built a couple of portable, small shelters out of recycled materials. Their goal is to create six more personal shelters made of stretchable or foldable materials, using principles and concepts outside the grid. They received the inspiration from the housing for elimination of consequences of natural disasters. Another goal is the creation of charging stations on solar batteries, place for cooking food community, and composting latrines.

Thus, the project "Impossible City" from the Sawhorse Revolution in addition, which solves the problem of the homeless, gives teenagers the opportunity to delve more deeply into the actual construction of housing.published
