Tiny Cottage Construction Update
Tiny Cottage #12 Under Construction in Bremerton
On Friday, June 22nd, the United Way of Kitsap County holds it's annual Day of Caring. On this day volunteers came together to work on several projects. One of these will be the construction of another tiny cottage for the village. The Olympic Educational Service District coordinates building projects with their students across the county to build homes through the Habitat For Humanity and all start Friday building the first of many tiny cottages for the Homes For All project. A group of students began on Friday constructing the foundation and walls of the #12 cottage at the Youth Skills Center on National Way in Bremerton. The Youth Build director, Jeff Allen, met with Tim Blair several weeks ago and pledged to build one new tiny cottage with each cohort of students that comes through their Youth Build program. This will translate into many new tiny cottages over the next few years. What a blessing for the Homes For All village project.
