This past week, on December 13, 2016, Habitat for Humanity Cabarrus County introduced it's second tiny home. Lucy Jackson was welcomed into her new home, and was thrilled to have the help of Elevation Church, as well.

This house was titled the "Tiny House 2." The first tiny home was built in 2015.

Elevation Church was a large part of it's construction and organization. In Habitat for Humanity's Facebook post they stated, "Thank you to Elevation Church - Concord and the City of Kannapolis for sponsoring this build. Also, a special thank you to the Housing Opportunity Foundation - Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association for helping us fund the shed and porch as well as a special barn door on the inside of the home."

The first tiny home was built in 2015.

As is typically the case with Habitat for Humanity's projects, this home was largely a community effort. The home is about 
488 square feet (a typically Habitat home is around 1,050 square feet). 

The eligible person will move in, and is required to work a certain number of hours keeping up the home in order to receive 0% interested in their mortgage for 30 years.

Welcome to the Tiny Home Movement, Lucy!
