TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT - The wealthy CEO, who bankrolled the new West Pensacola Street homeless shelter and other high-profile developments, is jumping on a new trend — tiny houses. Rick Kearney believes this new trend could help ease Tallahassee's affordable housing plight. These downsized domiciles are growing in popularity and featured on hit shows like "Tiny House Hunters" and "Tiny House, Big Living" on HGTV.

Kearney is proposing a $7.8-million concept he's calling "The Dwellings." It's a "tiny house" community with homes ranging from 250 to 400 square feet on 30 acres next door to Wolf Creek, a subdivision of 200 townhouse units off Blountstown Highway. They'd be sustainable and built with shared areas powered by solar panels. Communal spaces would include on-site community services, an organic garden, greenhouse and a community center.
