We have a newly-formed tiny home company here in Bluffton, South Carolina, near Hilton Head Island. The concept of Driftwood Homes USA began several months ago when the intrigue and popularity of the tiny home movement caught our attention and the discussion of building tiny homes began.
In the process of getting ready to build our first tiny home, the tragedy of the floods in South Carolina hit the areas to the north of us. In the words of our owner, Ben Kennedy, “I knew we had to step in and help, and I trust others would do the same if we were in this situation. We were fortunate that our area was not affected and are able to safely tuck our children in at night. That’s when I had the inspiration to build and donate two Tiny Homes to those who need it most.”
Our parent company is a custom home building business, so we combined the knowledge that we already had with the tiny home information we had gathered and began building tiny homes with the support of our community, subcontractors and suppliers. The first tiny home has been completed and we have begun construction on the second tiny home.
We are currently working with several organizations in the selection of the families that will benefit from these homes. Our hope is that when the immediate housing need of a family is met, they will continue to pay it forward to other families so that as many people as possible are able to benefit.
There is currently a donation site set up at www.BlufftonCares.com to cover the cost of building these homes. Although several weeks have passed since this historic flooding, many victims are just beginning to rebuild their homes and their lives.
