1 of 6

McKinney York partnered with BEC Austin, whom they worked with on phase one, to build the micro homes. With phase two, their goal was to make the design "easy enough so that people who weren’t skilled laborers and were volunteers could take the drawing and build one themselves," McKinney says. "With phase one, the houses were hard to pull off for anyone that wasn’t a carpenter."
