Sprout Is Designing Affordable Homes For The Physically Challenged, Wheelers, and Aging In Place

PUEBLO, CO, Oct. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE - Sprout Tiny Homes (OTC PINK: STHI) is stepping into a largely ignored but massive housing market - homes for the disabled and exceptional people.  The availability of affordable housing across the world has reached crisis status.  The lack of affordable housing is the number one complaint among almost every demographic in the housing market.  Baby boomers are looking to downsize from their mansions and 70% of millennials who don't yet own a home fear they'll never be able to afford one.  Another crisis that needs a focused effort to solve is meeting the housing needs of the disabled. According to global research statistics, approximately 17% of the global population is suffering from a disability, with approximately 2% of the population requiring wheelchairs. In population over the age of 65, 50% are disabled and 46% of the homeless population have disabilities. This enormous and expanding market requires a new approach to housing.  With an even greater emphasis on affordability, specialized floor plans, innovative designs and equipment have been elusive to this growing population of exceptional individuals.  

Sprout Tiny Homes has formed a partnership with Inclusives Tiny Homes Inc., an experienced and innovative group of disability experts in Europe/Germany.  The partnership will bring a lot of clarity when it comes down to fulfilling the requirements and needs for a fully equipped accessible tiny home for a disabled person, as well as for their family and friends.  The partnership brings global expertise regarding what is required to manage their unconventional and productive lifestyle.  Disabled persons strive to become fully independent and manage their daily activities with solutions that help them feel “non-disabled.”  The partnership will focus on modern and innovative floor plans, collaboration around traffic flow, innovative equipment, automated home controls, HVAC, Air Quality and complimentary services to greatly improve the lifestyle of exceptional people.  “We are very proud and pleased to lead the charge with this forward thinking partnership,” stated Rod Stambaugh, CEO of Sprout.  “It’s meaningful and we believe it can greatly invigorate the lives of so many exceptional people - worldwide. Good design and being able to produce and possibly license it in an affordable footprint is very hard to execute, but we are up for the challenge and we are confident we can execute with the real life expertise and though leadership brought to the partnership.  The American Dream of home ownership for everyone is alive and well at Sprout Tiny Homes.”  

This partnership is very much aligned with Sprout’s recent DOE Zero Energy Ready Home certification to deliver on the commitment of providing truly affordable homes. You have to consider the total cost of ownership when you evaluate the real meaning of affordable housing.  Where other builders attempt affordability by cheapening the materials utilized in the building process and reducing amenities, Sprout is accomplishing the goal through better design, innovation and a smaller footprint that can achieve a net zero annual energy cost.  We are designing and building the future of housing and giving new life to the American Dream of home ownership.  It may come in a smaller footprint, but the attention to innovative design, chemical free interiors and the option of zero energy costs bring a smile to clients that dare to think differently about housing.
