I think this makes the most sense for dealing with the homeless problem -- especially if the tiny buildings are portable, because those who are homeless often have a wanderlust that' can't be quelled.

Kudos to Austin for thinking out of the box. There is so much room that is not wasted as you can have beds that pull out of a closet or wall and ironing boards that flip down from a wall etc Hey Christeen, they even have a small garden for you to work in without hardly moving. Your M.D. and you would love that idea..Thanks for sharing!

A great idea that puts human beings before the bottom line. Way to go Austin.
