A gigantic community effort helps build Tiny Homes for Vets

Milwaukee (CBS 58)--A Tiny Home for a homeless veteran will get some major help from community members and vets this weekend at Summerfest. These workers are finalizing the exterior of a 200 square foot structure by putting in windows, siding, and doors.

Professional builder Zack Giffin with “Tiny Home Nation” on A & E will supervise the work being done. He’s helped build 15 of these type of houses.  He and the other organizers say each one symbolizes so much more than just a roof over someone’s head.

You can check out this Tiny Home all weekend long at Summerfest. It’s close to the North Gate.  If you know of a homeless vet who needs a place to live or if you want to help build a Tiny Home yourself, Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin can help. And if you're wanting to volunteer to build a Tiny Home, Operation Tiny Home is the organization to contact.
