Tiny Cottage Construction Update
Our local Lowes store on Sedgwick Rd. has stored three of our tiny houses over the last few months. They have now been moved out into the parking lot at Lowe's and are clustered close to many other garden sheds. Thank you to Valerie the store manager for accepting our request for help to park these tiny cottages in their parking lot.
We are presently working on transferring the titles to five donated construction trailers that are parked in Silverdale, Washington. We are hoping to have the trailers moved within the next few weeks. One of the trailers will become the bathroom facility for the village. This 24 foot long trailer will be moved to the First Lutheran parking lot in Port Orchard soon and our two churches (First Lutheran and Ekklesia) will begin remodel work to transform it into a bathroom facility.

Eleven cottages have been built and the twelfth is under construction at the high school wood shop class!
Ekklesia has been blessed by
Leo's Towing who offered to move all our completed tiny houses over the last year. Sadly, Leo passed away a few weeks ago after a brief illness. We will now need to secure another tow truck company to help us as the tiny houses need to be moved.
