More about TTHN
Tiny homes are smaller than usual living space that challenges traditional concepts of a housing layout. Most people have seen small apartments or wheeled homes on a trailer, but there are many variants.
For the purpose of our first project Think Tiny Homes Northumberland (TTHN) is defining a tiny house as a non-mobile build with a maximum square footage of 650 square feet.
Our initial project will be a micro village concept. This proposed build would involve a single parcel of land developed to accommodate several living spaces in common buildings with shared outdoor space. Such a model allows for a diversity of ownership and community interactions.
As a chapter of Habitat for Humanity our focus will be on builds that result in homeownership. This does not mean that we are opposed to rental opportunities that involve tiny homes, but rather that our initial project will pursue homeownership as an outcome.
TTHN is committed to coordinating and aligning projects with the County’s affordable housing strategy.
