Homeless man jumps for joy over new tiny house
The abrasive buzz of the power saw cut through the cloudy morning, as a frenzied construction crew prepared to frame, wire and ready a set of homes for insulation and roofing.
For days, the group worked in a remote green space just off of Rosa Parks Boulevard, erecting tiny houses.
On Friday morning they traveled by trailer down Broadway and by lunchtime a village of small, stand-alone structures assumed permanent residence at Green Street Church of Christ ready to shelter Nashville’s homeless.
“I get emotional about this, because this is so cool,” said Roger McGue, who has twice lived in the homeless tent camp set up on the green space the church calls its sanctuary, including his current year-long stint.
