First 2 Tiny Homes

In Place At Meadows

Brian Wilcox, of Wilcox Construction Co., Norwich, top, examines the first two of 15 “tiny homes” behind the county’s Meadows Office Complex, Town of Middlefield.  The small structures are a county Board of Representatives’ initiative to provide temporary housing for the county’s homeless.  Inset, Senior County Planner Erik Scrivener examines the space in one of the structures where the bathroom will be located.  The small homes are designed by Mike Steiger, Smsa Architectural Services, Cassville, and are being built by SUNY Delhi construction students at the Delaware County campus, then transported here.  Under construction on site is a community center, and plans are to power the complex, to the degree possible, with geothermal and solar powers, according to County Planning Director Karen Sullivan.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
