Here’s some news from Transition Exeter this morning:

Tiny homes launch

The crisis in housing is well-known, with homeless people on the street just the tip of the iceberg of those who need a place to live.  Now a local group is seeking to make tiny eco-homes, set up as a community, a real possibility,  Exeter Tiny Homes aims to build an intergenerational community of truly affordable tiny or compact homes in Devon.  It’s launching this month and seeking to establish itself as a community benefit society.  You can help by supporting its crowdfund – more details below.

And here are those details:

Help launch Exeter Tiny House Community

“We are a group of 12 people (and growing!) who have a vision to build an intergenerational community of truly affordable tiny or compact homes in Devon UK. We envisage our inclusive community to be a flagship ‘village’ showing that people can live on the land with a low ecological impact. We are all in favour of the build, process and way of living to reflect our deep care and concern for the planet. This may include sourcing local sustainable materials to build our homes, using local labour and trying to be as self-reliant and resilient as possible.

“We are hoping to raise £2,000 to get the Exeter Tiny House Community project kick-started. Funds are needed to enable us to create a Community Benefit Society then move forward towards identifying and purchasing land.”
