FlashHarry: madison is awesome.
abhorrent1: No. It's a shed on wheels and I could build one for less than that.
Anayalator: [img.fark.net image 54x11]Awesome project. Bravo Madison.
gopher321: "There's no plumbing or electricity, but the home is insulated and has a propane heater to get the residents through the harsh Wisconsin winters."Umm...how about "No"?
stupiddream: I didn't see a bathroom in any of those pics. Do they have a central bathhouse like a campground? Still, I guess it's better than a shelter.
ThighsofGlory: Anayalator: [img.fark.net image 54x11]Awesome project. Bravo Madison.It's a tasteful shantytown, I'll give you that.
phenn: Anayalator: [img.fark.net image 54x11]Awesome project. Bravo Madison.Yes. Bravo, indeed.
nekom: I bought a $1,500 house. Granted it was built in 1910 but it was adjacent to our house and came with 2 lots. Makes a nice project shack.
Anayalator: For all of the rhetoric and vitriol we hear from DC daily, isn't great to read a story like this to restore a little bit of faith in humanity? If everyone did a tried just a little bit, there would be very little homelessness and poverty in this country. These people got it right. I'm going to carry a little smile on my face for the day.
LasersHurt: stupiddream: I didn't see a bathroom in any of those pics. Do they have a central bathhouse like a campground? Still, I guess it's better than a shelter.They have composting toilets and no plumbing. And no electrical.I applaud the idea, but it seems like the tiny-house movement in general could squeeze more out of 5k.
RobertBruce: http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/ expensive but much better built.
Pfighting Polish: Madison is the home of the Wisconsin Badgers, ergo, it sucks more than any other city on the planet./Go Marquette//Worked for Bo Ryan for one year. I have sympathy for Jarrod Uthoff.
