Solving the Affordable Housing Crisis: Building Smart-Tech Tiny Home Communities

Maria Simone July 13, 2022

There’s a deficit of approximately 7 million housing units in the US and homelessness is at crisis proportions.  Tiny Homes provide a solution to the current affordable housing shortage and can also be used as a template to help end homelessness.

Some benefits include:

  • Tiny homes provide an agile housing solution that can be moved as needs change.
  • While generally not more than 400 sq ft, space is efficiently utilized to allow for “full size” living.
  • Off the grid & Micro-grid opportunities are possible using solar and wind, compost toilets, etc.
  • Smart tech is easily incorporated for comfort, convenience and conservation.
  • NFT’s and Tokenization with Tiny Homes. 
  • Intentional tiny home communities allow for individual home ownership while  still maintaining a  connection to others with a variety of shared spaces.
