Chicago has plummeted to record lows and there are still people left sleeping outside. This photo was taken yesterday night in uptown – proof that people are still struggling to survive in the frigged weather here right next to us in Chicago.
People ask me why I am so adamant about bringing tiny houses to Chicago. This photo is reason alone. Please help Chicago Tiny House Inc to get zoning so we can start helping our brothers and sisters in our neighborhoods.

Dear Tiny House community Friday, September 28, 2018 This call to action is being submitted by Chicago Tiny House Inc. to all the fine residents of Chicago who are in favor of building community based tiny houses for our veterans and homeless residents of Chicago. Our Organization has taken on the challenge of helping our city support our fellow residents by providing community based housing at low to no cost to our clients. We cannot continue our plan of aiding our fellow homeless, without proper zoning changes. We feel our voices have gone unheard and have been put through wave after wave of political red tape. We have submitted two different proposals which outline a basic plan of building tiny house communities throughout Chicago and have hundreds of people backing our project as well as two prominent alderman backing our project. Our organization, Chicago Tiny House Inc., turned in the first proposal to build to our city department of planning back in April of 2018, to which was asked to be reworked and resubmitted. We then reworked the proposal and included the suggested changes and resubmitted on 07/10/2018. The second turn in of our proposal was accepted and tabled at Rahm Emmanuel’s request citing the city needed more information on tiny houses. Since then, we have no idea on what is going on nor do we know what direction our proposal is headed. We kindly ask that our proposal be approved so that we can continue helping our fellow residents to the best ability that we can. We have tried all legal endeavors and are now at the point where all we need is city approval and are not getting any communication from the city. Therefore, we encourage all our supporters to stand in mass, along with Chicago Tiny House Inc. to support our project. We want to show this city that we are serious and need to implement tiny houses to help put a dent in homelessness. We are asking all our supporters to show interest by rallying on the sidewalks of city hall alongside with Chicago Tiny House Inc.

Today we had the pleasure of visiting a highly talented group of youths, at West Town Academy High School. A special Thank You goes out to Marianne Pallozzi, a math teacher at West Town Academy High School, who reached out to us to help get kids involved with our project. Today our organization was invited to three periods of their day to talk about our project as well as getting West Town Academy involved with our project. It really was an awesome day to see the youth of today interested in doing good for our homeless residents. I’m proud to have participated and had a great time with the students today and hope many more visits to come.
This was an exercise that Marianne Pallozzi created in class where she asked all the students to create a mock tiny house in the classroom actually finding the sq ft area then trying to see if all the furniture would fit into the area – It was a blast to see the brainstorming going on.

This is an amazing inspiration written on the wall of the classroom
