A non-profit organization in Northern California is leading a team of homebuilders and contractors in building six tiny homes to help house the working homeless. HomeAid Northern California is constructing the homes on the parking lot of a church in Castro Valley.

Each 157-square-foot home will be equipped with a kitchen, bed, and shower to aid people in their transition from homelessness into permanent housing. Team members include Pulte Homes, Brookfield Residential, Branagh, William Lyon Homes, Richmond American Homes and XL Construction with CoBuild acting as the project manager.

The cost to design, construct, and install the six tiny homes was about $240,000 for all six homes or about $40,000 each.
