Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin is proposing to build up to 100 prefabricated tiny homes that have heating and cooling, as well as a desk and bed.

AL.com reported Friday that Woodfin will present the micro-shelter pilot program to the City Council on Jan. 10.

The proposal calls for setting up the mini-houses in safe, private communities.

If the purchase gets approved, a company called Pallet Shelter would build the units.

A statement from the city called Pallet Shelter the “leader in rapid response shelter villages.”

The company says assembly takes less than an hour.
