Short Movie: It Takes a Village to Make a Village

Please watch this new short movie about this recent tiny house volunteer build:  It Takes a Village to Make a Village

Enterprise James Rouse Day of Service 

Enterprise, Seattle Vocation Institute, LIHI and Community Partners  Build 8 Tiny Houses in a Day

On Friday, Aug 18, over 100 volunteers with Enterprise and their industry partners, students in Seattle Vocational Institute’s pre-apprenticeship program and LIHI volunteers came together and built eight tiny homes in one day in SVI’s parking lot. Mark Huber and Mike Kirkman of Huber’s Custom Building were the designers of the innovative tiny house model and helped lead the construction. During the lunch break, a current resident and former resident of the tiny house villages shared their stories and inspiring words.

Everyone had a great time building these homes, which will be moved to the new tiny house villages in Seattle where the current Ballard and Interbay villages will be relocating. These homes will improve and save lives, and we are grateful to the many volunteers and community leaders who made this possible!
