Below are some high-level "Concept" overviews of Ensemble's Tiny Home CLUSTER Community Vision for VSS/Villages for VSS:

   

Together VSS and Ensemble are developing new veteran housing services and solutions to help address emergency, transitional and long term housing needs for Veterans in Colorado, and eventually nationwide in partnership alliances with a number of emerging "Veteran Village" initaitives.

Today we are working with local Veteran assistance agencies and organizations in the creation of emergency and transitional housing programs and services to help create an inventory of available and suitable lodging properties for homeless Veterans and their famlies.  Over the course of the next year we will be creating a unique and modular "Tiny House Capitalization, Configuration, and Construction Solution" that will allow for the creation of "Self-Contained" and "Interconnected" Tiny Houses that can be configured into a "Community Cluster" that can be located on property that is part of a "Veteran Village" development, or stand-alone in its on local plot of land, or part of another Real Estate development.
