About the Tiny Houses

Twelve 8' x 12' wooden structures, called "wooden tents" were constructed between October and December to provide short term winter shelter for the initial tiny house village, names "Peter's Place". These structures were built to create a housing resource, and worked in collaboration with the City of Port Townsend, Jefferson County, and the Port so that this housing resource might be utilized through the housing crisis. The Evangelical Bible Church graciously offered land adjacent to the church as a construction and storage site for the initial building process until such an appropriate site was found. Landing at the Community United Methodist Church, the 12 units were placed and are  accompanied by a bathroom and shower unit as well as a community area for added storage and light cooking.

The 2nd village Community Build is taking place Spring and Summer of 2021. Initial building will take place at the Evangelical Bible Church until the secured village site is ready for tiny house village placement. 

Plans for these structures were provided by the Low Income Housing Institute (lihi.org) and provide insulation, an electric outlet, a light, a heater, and a bed.  Other cities that have such temporary, supportive villages have found that they are designed to be quickly erected and are relatively easy to relocate to another site.
