Friends of the Tiny Homes Village gathered at a 40-acre farm eight miles southwest of campus for an off-site event hosted by UNC School of Social Work. Guests toured 15 permanent homes built for an average of $50,000 a home. Each “tiny home” is 416-square-foot in size. The permanent residences were designed for people living with mental illnesses and veterans living on a fixed income.
