Brad Pitt’s Non-Profit Announces First Tiny House Build In New Orleans

Yes, you read that correctly. Brad Pitt, the actor and not someone with the same name, and his non-profit company Make It Right aim to bring a sustainable housing option to New Orleans, a city that desperately needs viable housing solutions ever since Hurrican Katrina wreaked havoc years ago. They are teaming up with FYI’s “Tiny House Nation” to build a 496 sq. foot solar powered LEED Platinum home for a local teacher who lives in the lower 9th ward. The finished product will be announced in just a few days, and on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the levee failure that caused so much damage in the city.

Update 9/4/2015 – Make It Right shared some more pictures of the completed project. Check them out below!
