Norwich University students built a 360 sq. ft. ‘tiny home’ in Barre that is being heralded as prototype solution for homelessness.
Designed and built by Norwich University students, the LIFT house is a 360-square-foot, energy-efficient home for a homeless person with mental health issues who would not fit in well in an apartment complex or shared-living housing situation. The students named the project the LIFT house with the idea that the concept and structure itself could help lift someone out of a difficult situation.
