The City of Calgary council recently approved a village of tiny homes for homeless veterans.
The Homes for Heroes village will open in Forest Lawn in southeast Calgary in the spring of 2019 at the corner of 36th Street and Eighth Avenue S.E.
The CBC says ATCO took care of the design and construction, and will take care of the delivery and placement of the 275-square-foot homes, and the Mustard Seed is selecting suitable tenants for the village.
The tiny homes are fully equipped with a kitchen, a three-piece bathroom and a living room that doubles as a bedroom with a Murphy-bed.
The goal is to start moving veterans into the units late next spring. The village will have 15 homes, a resource centre, community gardens and memorials to Canadian soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan.
