KOMO News in Seattle Washington and Martha Kang write a story about a homeless structure designed to help the homeless in Nickelsville.
The 8-square-foot structure houses the dreams of the residents at Nickelsville.
It’s called a “simple small sturdy sleeping structure,” and each resident hopes to soon call one home.
“It’s sturdy,” said resident Mike Whistler, who helped build the prototype. “It’s a lot better than a tent – I can say that much. And it’s durable.”

Mike Jones, another Nickelsville resident, designed the structure, and several others help build the prototype, which now proudly sits outside the old Lake City fire station, the current home of the Nickelsville (tent encampment).
A mix-and-match of donated and newly-bought parts, the structure cost roughly $250 to build.
