A collection of 30 44-square-foot micro-homes in Olympia, Wash., may be a model for future homeless housing projects.

The 2.1-acre, $3.05 million project, known as Quixote Village, is guided and funded by the nonprofit Panza, and currently houses 29 formerly homeless people — 22 men and seven women — who moved in on Dec. 24 last year.

The homes, which measure 8 by 18 feet and, with total site prep, cost approximately $88,000 each, include flush toilets and could become a model for other cities. Delegations from Santa Cruz, Calif., Portland, Ore., and Seattle have already visited the community to see it in person.
