Today I want to share a very special tiny house with you. This home, constructed by a Central Wisconsin native named Brian Berg, will be donated as a shelter to a somebody who lost their home during Hurricane Harvey.
Berg works for a door company in Neenah. After seeing cool videos of tiny houses on YouTube, he decided he would try making one of his own.
The structure measures 16 feet long by 8 ½ feet wide. It stands 13 ½ feet tall.
The home has been under construction for three years now. While the outside has been completed, much of the interior work still needs to be finished before the structure can be lived in.
While the tiny house was Berg’s dream for himself, his dreams changed when he found out about the misfortunes of Hurricane Harvey victims.
Realizing that many people lost everything during the storm, Berg decided that instead of keeping the house, he would donate it on completion to one of the homeless victims, most likely a single mother.
When Tiny House Rescue and the United Tiny House Association heard about his plans, they picked up the house and moved it to Georgia. There they will complete it professionally and then locate a recipient.
I am very impressed by Brian Berg’s story, and find both his tiny house and his charitable spirit inspiring. Three years is a lot of time and hard work to put into construction, and now he has given all of that to a family in need. This is the very best of what the tiny house movement stands for, and a great example of how building small can change lives in a big way.
