Tiny Home community officially open!

Rick Kearney (with scissors) is flanked by members of the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce and other supporters Monday for ribbon-cutting ceremonies that mark the official opening of The Dwellings, a community of tiny houses. Eleven of the units built on the west side of Tallahassee are already occupied and Kearney said most of the first 24 should have tenants within the next month. The houses are intended to do away with homelessness and help individuals get back to normal life, Kearney said. Applicants will have to meet several qualifications, but they could get in without credit checks or deposits. Photo by St. Clair Murraine
