Martin Luther would be proud

It happened recently in Seattle, Washington. Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd donated the land, and volunteers gathered to built fourteen tiny homes in one weekend. Each home has electricity and oil heat, and is insulated. A separate building contains bathrooms and running water, with showers coming soon.

Each home costs about $2,000 to build, and residents who would otherwise be homeless pay $90 per month for utilities. The buildings provide temporary housing until occupants can be moved to permanent homes. The first residents have already moved in. Why do these buildings appeal to the homeless? According to church member Steve Tucker, "The difference is that you have electricity and a lock on the door."
