Vets Volunteer to Build 52 Tiny Houses for Fellow Vets in Missouri
Tiny houses are a growing trend across the US. But for veterans in Kansas City, these tiny houses will be more than just a place to call home. It’ll be a chance for a fresh start.
Ten tiny houses all in a row…built by veterans for veterans.
Jeffrey Penfield spent more than 30-years in the Navy. He and other vet volunteers, all wearing camouflage hats, spend the weekend building at this “Veterans Village.”
“When you’re in the US military, it’s all about serving – giving of oneself for the greater good,” Penfield says. “And that doesn’t stop when you put the uniform away.”
Eventually a 5-acre lot at 89th and Troost in Kansas City will be filled with 52 of these tiny homes, complete with kitchen, bed, and bathroom.
“It’s amazing what you can put into 240 square feet,” says Mark Solomon, co-founder of the Veterans Community Project.
