University of Southern Indiana, located just outside Evansville in Vanderburgh County, is about to feature a new model of a special type of “tiny house.” Building of the compact home model starts on campus this year. It’s all part of a pilot project to create a cultural transformation to help the community. So, it’s called the MAGIC Project: Multi-Ability, multi-Generational, Inclusive Community (MAGIC).
No one will live in the house. At least, not for now. The university released information on the community project this month. The projects will be the result of a partnership with USI and the USI Foundation. Plus, support for the project will also come from AARP and AARP Indiana.
The model house in Evansville will show the public how accessible and innovative tiny homes can be. So, it will actually be a smart-house. It will show how these homes can maximize independence and well-being. They’re meant to be affordable and adaptable. They aren’t strictly for the aging community though. It’s a housing model for both students and older adults. Courier & Press reported that the houses are also called Minkas and that they can be adapted to meet the needs of adults of all ages and abilities.
