TimberHut, in partnership with the Rebecca Rose Recovery Centers of Western New York, is embarking on what it called “a groundbreaking initiative” to design and build a sober living community featuring architecturally advanced tiny homes. The collaborative effort, funded through a humanitarian endeavor supported by grant funding from Erie County, and contributions from local donors, aims to promote natural healing and recovery for individuals dealing with addiction.

A press release stated “Over the past year, TimberHut has worked closely with Pastor Al Robinson of Spirit of Truth Urban Ministry in Buffalo to bring this visionary project to life. Inspired by their own experiences with addiction, TimberHut's founder, Brooks Anderson, and Pastor Robinson are committed to providing a transformative environment that supports individuals on the path to recovery.

“The tiny homes, designed in collaboration with ELEV8 Architecture, will not only offer a safe and secure living space but will incorporate innovative architectural designs and technology to foster natural healing. The project places a strong emphasis on creating an environment that combats depression through creative use of colors and natural lighting.”

Anderson said, "We're not just building tiny homes; we're creating villages designed to battle depression.”

The first prototype of the sober living tiny home is expected to be completed by the end of March, with plans to refine and produce 12 units by summer.

The initial village will be situated on property owned by the Rebecca Rose Recovery Centers of Western New York in Lovejoy. Anderson envisions the potential for these tiny homes to be replicated easily, offering communities across the country and worldwide a blueprint for supportive and healing environments.

Robinson said, "Our collaboration isn't just a partnership. It's a joining of hearts and minds to create something extraordinary for those newly embarking on the path of sobriety."
