The Village on 17th or “V17” is our new and upcoming tiny house community for both Veterans and Citizens alike. The 24,600 sq ft lot will fit eight to ten tiny homes. Additionally, there will be community gardens, pet walks, and a communal center for the residents. Three to four of the homes will be specifically designated as Veteran Housing. Working in conjuncture with the nonprofit organization, Build Us H.O.P.E., Tiny House Developers will be designing and constructing the largest tiny home community in Phoenix.
Each home will range in size from 300-600 sq ft. They will contain one to two bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom, and storage space. Large outdoor patios will encourage residential cohabitation, spending time outdoors, and create a more full sense of living space. The community center will house laundry units, common areas, and services for the residents. The dedicated Veteran Housing applicants will be chosen through a lottery process, and will include those among the “working homeless” category. We have found this demographic to be the most successful at transition back into a normal life routine, and will pay only a reduced portion of their income for the housing.
The Groundbreaking Event will be held November 7th, 2019. It is open to the public, and we invite you to join us! There will also be many volunteer opportunities leading up to and following the groundbreaking ceremony. Bring your friends and family to get your hands on building a tiny house for veterans, it is a rewarding experience and great learning opportunity. We HOPE to see you there!
