Working on housing the unhoused in Sacramento. The city has had several designs proposed for tiny houses. But the price for these designs is not tiny at ALL. A Tiny hut or Conestoga hut can be built for $1500. Not including the trailer. It comes off the trailer and sits on the ground.
So basically.... TEN Tinyhuts or Conestoga huts can be built for the price of ONE of the tiny houses being proposed to the city.
