Decide what type of dwelling type fits your location. Depending on where you live could dictate what type of floor plan will best suit your family. Dwellings such as single-family homes give the ability to have outdoor space for a yard and backyard and provide more space to spread out in. An attached home similar to brownstones or condos in a urban area could also meet your “single family home” needs but divided amongst a multi-level floor plan. Split-level floor plans means your entire floors are split to separate levels and don’t consume the entire footprint of your home. Decide which of these types are found in your city.
If phase one is successful, CCSS may consider adding an additional phase of homes for families in the future. In 10 years, Fowler hopes that Cass Community Tiny Homes will be a real neighborhood with a strong sense of community where people know each other and enjoy drinking coffee on their porches while the kids play games and ride bikes.
Keep your views unobstructed. Keep the Space Open. Allowing open views from each area to the next is key in open floor plans. Be stylish but strategic with placement; don’t clutter the sight lines with tall bookcases or inappropriately large furniture or accessories. For example, an arch lamp over the sofa that blocks the view of the kitchen wouldn’t allow for a free flow of conversation. Also be sure to keep windows and natural light unobstructed.
Tiny homes giving formerly homeless people the opportunity to become homeowners? You bet! Tiny homes are now being built in a Detroit neighborhood where formerly homeless folks and people with low incomes can rent—and have the opportunity to buy—their own homes. These very small green houses are part of a community within a neighborhood called Cass Community Tiny Homes that’s being developed by the Detroit-based nonprofit Cass Community Social Services (CCSS), which provides health, housing, food and jobs programs in areas of concentrated poverty in the city.
