Emerald Village Euguene (EVE) will include 22 tiny houses (160–288
sq. ft.) designed as permanent dwellings on a slab foundation—complete with sleeping and living areas, kitchenette, and bathroom.
The tiny houses will be supported by a community building that will provide a
common larger kitchen, meeting space, laundry, and tool storage.
Residents of EVE will be members of a housing cooperative and will have a share in the village—enabling them to create a modest asset that can be cashed out when
they choose to move-out.
The monthly cost to live at EVE will be $250–$350 per month, and will cover the share
payment, utility expenses, maintenance, and all other operating costs.
A community agreement outlines a basic code of conduct that all residents must abide
by, and requires that each resident participate in helping to manage the village.
EVE will offer security of a stable home to very low-income people, as well as a voice in shaping how their housing is operated and managed through a democratic process.
Potential residents must submit an application and interview with the membership committee. Applicants need to meet income requirements, demonstrate willingness to live in accordance with the community agreements, and contribute 50 hours of sweat equity during EVE’s development phase.

Emerald Village Euguene is a project developed by SquareOne Village, a non-profit organization creating self-managed communities of low-cost tiny homes for people in need of housing. It builds upon the success of Opportunity Village Eugene, a transitional micro-housing community for otherwise homeless individuals and couple.
