Exception. . .not a tiny house!

Baukat Enterprises LLC is collaborating with Humanitarian House Int’l Architect, Stuart Ohlson, and a Durango home builder to develop The Village of Hope of La Plata County for Community Compassion Outreach.

CCO is an advocate for alternative housing for people in homelessness and poverty. CoFounders Donna Mae Baukat (Executive Director) and Pastor Jon Alsdorf of Durango Christian Church has led the program until Community Compassion Outreach became a Colorado Nonprofit Corporation on March 29 2018.

CCO Board of Directors has endorsed the HHi SIPs House, also referred to as a dignified insulated lockable safe shelter, for sustainable living. It is the HHi Small House, which is designed for either conventional wood materials or prefabricated structural insulated panels (SIPs) — a more expensive option.

The image below is a 256-Square Feet 16’x16′ structure. It is designed to accommodate one couple or a single person.

“HHi SIPs House” is designed by Stuart Ohlson, AIA, Founder and CEO of Humanitarian House International, Inc.

Floor Plan includes kitchenette and compact bathroom unit.
