First-Ever Veteran’s Tiny House Community in Phoenix

In heart of Phoenix, tiny are being built to create more affordable housing. And in late 2018, first tiny house community for homeless veterans opened. Arizona non-profit, Build Us Hope built it with sustainable principles, long-term durability, and aesthetically pleasing design in mind.

V13 was built on a vacant lot within an existing neighborhood with mostly small older homes. Each of three 288 sq. ft. micro homes included beautiful big porches, and are surrounded by edible landscaping. Veteran residents manage on-site community gardens. Also, the tiny homes are available for or purchase, well below area’s market-rate housing—starting at $450/month. Build Us Hope helps connect residents to financing, as well as supportive services.

groundbreaking of the next Veterans village is slated for August 2019. Coming to the same Phoenix neighborhood.

  4. I salute you by having this wonderful and extremely helpful project. If only more countries would take advantage of this idea, so many people would live with dignity. I’m in Italy right now and see the need for so many people who just can’t make it on their own. Great job.

  7. Being a Veteran myself, this made my eyes well up… Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us! ☺️

  8. 450 dollars a month for a tiny doll house.
    that is terrible. your making out you are helping veterans . Yet your charging them a fortune.

    It is a great idea but the price should be cheap.

  9. God bless and thanks.  Brought a tear to my eye.  I am a vet but am doing ok, I had it easy, I am happy to see someone is helping my brothers and sisters who need a leg up.  We need to do more for those who serve and this is a great example.
