Camp Quixote is a self-governing tent community of about 30 homeless adults located in Olympia, Washington. It’s supported by Panza, a local non-profit organization, and recently became home to 30 tiny prefab homes, each of which cost $19,000 to build. The village is just one of many microhouse projects that have started to attract attention recently, and could provide a solution for many of the homeless people on the streets across America.
