The "affordable village" can provide permanent housing based upon a similar village model. The dwellings would be slightly larger with utility hook-ups, and residents would pay a modest rent or mortgage. A goal is for the cost to be similar to government subsidized housing, without the assistance. Below is an initial concept plan for what this could look like:
I want to build something for people that maybe don't have such strong beliefs, but just want something affordable and come to live more sustainably as a result. Not because they are into permaculture but because they simply have few material needs. If people are content living in tiny houses, why don't we capture that and build upon it? Doing so could blur the lines between the housed and the unhoused, where the two finally begin to converge rather than diverge.
