A unique housing opportunity is presenting itself in Niagara Region as an approach to tackling the housing crisis in the form of a tiny home builder.
Aloft Housing Inc., a company started by former Habitat for Humanity chief operations officer, Keith Gowan, and other former Habitat members is looking to take tiny home living to new heights.
By utilizing over-parking structures, Aloft will build tiny homes on legs to maximize urban coverage and provide housing in urban cores and settings without impacting parking.
According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. approximately 3.5 million homes will be needed within the next decade to meet demand for housing in cities across Canada.
Through a modular design, Aloft will be able to build multiple units to connect together to form housing units between 200-300 square feet of living space with all the amenities a person will need.
