“Move-In” Day at the YSA Tiny House Village

YSA Tiny House Build Days - volunteer with hammer sets another nail.

Two more weekends (January 30, 31 and February 6, 7) before the residents move in.  Click HERE for the latest photos.

Kehilla members Alex Madonik and Terry McGlynn joined our build leader Nikee Borden to put some finishing touches on two of the 26 Tiny Houses at the nearly-complete Youth Spirit Artworks Tiny House Village adjacent to the Oakland Coliseum.  Sunday, January 10th was overcast, but the bright colors and rapid progress visible all around the Village warmed the hearts of several volunteer groups at work that day.  The two houses “adopted” by the Kehilla team just need mattresses for their Murphy beds and electricity from PG&E and they will be ready for their first young occupants.  The Village will also provide communal shower and bathroom trailors, kitchen yurts, bicycle storage, and 24/7 onsite staff to insure security and provide needed social services.

Enjoy Alex’s photo gallery, and contact YSA if you’d like to help complete the Village – volunteers are needed Wednesdays and weekends.
