A 'tiny home' is where the heart is

Updated: Feb 7, 2022

The first ARK 'Tiny House' is a giant stride to build a community where everyone has a decent place to call home. In a matter of months, the first ARK 'Tiny House' went from a concept drawing on paper, to reality. Cayman's unique and exemplary community kindness created the gift of a whole new beautiful and comfortable world for the family to live.

This process began in August 2021 (read more here) - and yesterday, Saturday 5 February, ARK hosted an official "ribbon cutting" ceremony. The photos below show the previous dwelling, the work in progress, and the end result -- a truly joyous beginning.

This fabulous home is 565 square foot with one bedroom, and open kitchen living and dining area, and a spacious bathroom specially designed for wheelchair access. We are counting down the days to when the family can move in -- and begin their new life.
