Biggest Little Streets

Michelle, Living in an Affordable Container

Episode Summary

“This is really such a blessing,” Michelle Nullius Filius Couyette said of living at the Village on Sage Street, a collection of squeezed in $400 per month dorm units inside containers on land donated by the city of Reno. “I am happy for this opportunity and I really hope more people can take advantage of this. If you meet the criteria, come down and see what you can do with a little space.” The Community Foundation of Western Nevada recently announced it was loosening requirements for seniors on fixed incomes to qualify for this housing, which so far has catered more to workers with limited income, amid the region’s growing affordable housing crisis.
