Microhousing for the homeless



Since yurts seem so scary to people, how about microhousing of the homeless for even less? Here is the tale of microhousing built for $200. Not $200K, $200.

After twenty failed years of affordable housing programs that cost us all tons money while delivering to only a handful, it is time to try alternative strategies. Despite the hundreds of millions we spend on affordable housing in Los Angeles County, the majority of the homeless of five years ago, when I first proposed yurts to the City, are just as homeless today.
