Man Builds A House For A Homeless Woman After He Sees Her Sleeping In The Street

Elvis Summers has already built 37 tiny houses for homeless residents of Los Angeles after seeing one woman sleeping in the street.


One man is taking on homelessness by tapping into the tiny-house craze that’s sweeping the nation right now.

It all started after Los Angeles resident Elvis Summers noticed a 60-year-old woman in his neighborhood sleeping in the dirt a few doors down from where he lived. Feeling like it was his duty as a fellow human to try and do something to help the poor woman, he decided to build a tiny home for her out of recycled materials.

It took Summers five days to build the home, which comes complete with a window and sturdy wheels to move it between different locations. These materials, including the wheels and two locks for the front door, cost him about $500.

His words say it all: “Nobody should be homeless, especially in one of the richest countries in the world.”

Feeling inspired by what he’d managed to do in such a short time, Summers founded My Tiny House Project LA. He’s already built over 30 tiny houses for homeless people across the city.
