Tiny Homes by Elvis Summers, house the Homeless

Ever since Elvis Summers’s good deed – building a tiny house for his homeless neighbor Smokie – went viral, his life has been “nothing but chaos.” That one good deed has transformed into his life’s work virtually overnight. “[If] I have to do it singlehandedly ’til it’s done – building one tiny house at a time until there’s no more homelessness – then that’s what I’ll do,” Summers tells PEOPLE. Since raising over $80,000 on GoFundMe, the Los Angeles man has been working seven days a week to build a movement (and of course, more houses). On Monday, he’ll complete a slightly bigger tiny house for a homeless man named Lorenzo and his three dogs.” – People.com

Los Angeles ‘Treehouse’

Perched atop steel pylons that abstractly emulate natural branches, the project is not literally a tree house but rather a modern interpretation of one. The design pays the ultimate respect to the pre-existing tree, literally shaping itself around the contours of the trunk. Inside, a single glass cut out in the floor reconnects the tree house inhabitant to the tree itself, a respectful and subtle nod to Mother Nature” – ArchDaily

Urban Rancher

This is a great story of the Urban Rancher, a freelance designer in Los Angeles who has bought some property in the mountains outside of town and is building a mortgage free tiny house. Construction has just begun but first he’s got to visualize some design options. This is definitely a project to follow.
