EUGENE, Ore. — Two homeless Eugene families won’t have to brave the cold much longer. That’s because two Eugene council Conestoga huts will be ready this Saturday.
Erik Debuhr with Tiny Life Industries in Eugene is hard at work putting the finishing touches on the huts. He makes all the modular panels, along with the doors and windows in the shop. The rest will be installed onsite.
Two people on St. Vincent de Paul’s car camping waiting list will get to live in the huts.
“It’s really exciting to see this starting to take off, and we are doing a good job here at the Tiny Life shop to figure out how we can mass produce these this winter,” Debuhr said.
Debuhr hopes this pilot period will go well and that the huts will eventually be allowed in Opportunity Village.
