Cass Community Tiny Homes is located at Woodrow Wilson and Elmhurst streets on a two-and-a-half-block parcel of land that CCSS owns just north of its main campus. Community residents have access to programs on CCSS’s main campus (just a short walk away), including home ownership training, a medical clinic and mental health services, a gym, a library, and transportation services. While other cities have used tiny homes to house the homeless, this creative rent-to-own program is the first of its kind in Detroit, and possibly, in the country.
Window Wall Turns Heads, It's hard to believe, but this unique home (plan 923-6) holds a modest 1,098 square feet with a slim (28'6") width. That means that this design would fit well in a narrow city lot, where land can be expensive. A sleeping loft provides room for visitors, while owners get a comfortable suite with a walk-in closet and private bath on the main floor. The eat-in kitchen offers plenty of room for a table to create a casual vibe.
Tiny Home with a View, This striking design, plan 479-12, takes splendid advantage of a scenic lot. Walls of windows let light stream inside to illuminate the open living spaces. On the main level, the kitchen invites everyone to hang out at the island, where there's seating for four (and the range also lives here, letting you saute dinner without turning your back on guests). The upper level lets you store tons of books in a row of bookshelves. Grab a volume and hop into your big bed.
Board-and-Batten Siding. The board-and-batten look, originally associated with farmhouses, is showing up on the exterior of homes of all stripes -- as you can see in some of Houseplans.com most popular new designs, like Plan 430-156, above. It’s also being used for decoration inside homes. Batten strips add texture to walls, notes Binkley. They also add “solar animation,” he says, by casting shadows on the wall. In the classic look, 1x2 batten strips run vertically over siding boards. “But I’ve seen them turned at an angle to create a diamond pattern,” says Binkley.
