The objective is to build 1 Tiny house (small movable wooden house), with the participation of the future user of this house, and with a maximum of materials resulting from reuse, available on the Emmaüs de Norges la ville site and on other other sites.
It is jointly supported by the following two partners :
- ADEFO, which is an association under the 1901 law working in the field of reception, accommodation and support for people in great social difficulty ;
- the EMMAUS De Norges la Ville community, which welcomes 130 companions on its site.
Since March 2021, following a call for expressions of interest from DIHAL, Interministerial Directorate for Housing and Access to Housing, ADEFO has opened a housing and support service called « Grands Précaires » .
Following the regular observations of the SIAO 115 21, the SIAO social monitoring committee identified around twenty people known to all the players in accommodation and housing, more particularly in Dijon Métropole, experiencing difficult life paths, interspersed with breakups and unable to settle permanently in housing or even accommodation. The issues identified are those related to child welfare pathways, addiction, behavioral problems and being on the street for several years, despite the various proposals / effective orientations. These are the people who are directed to the Grands Précaires service. Some of them with a long journey on the street and wandering cannot immediately imagine living in a traditional habitat.
The accommodation offered when the Grands Précaires service opened, here called Machureau, was organized from two townhouses close to each other, made available by Dijon Métropole. They both have a garden. Depending on their particularities, the people received can be installed inside one of the houses, alone or in pairs, also in diffused housing (elsewhere) but also today for two of them in caravans installed in the gardens .
Caravans are damaged, their need is still relevant and this type of habitat is still suitable for a few people. The tiny intended for Machureau is made without toilets, in order to create a progressive airlock between the street and more traditional accommodation for the people received who will have to use the toilets of the houses. It is built so that it can later be moved to another site (transport on a truck bed, then placed on simple studs on the host site). It is equipped with a simple electrical installation (light points, power outlet, 1 electric heater which are powered by a connection to the existing room).
Building users opinion
Benoit took ownership of his future home very quickly as he took part in its construction.
If you had to do it again?
A second tiny is already planned, this time for a companion from the Emmaus community of Norges la ville, and with his participation. ADEFO is considering with Greater Dijon the provision of other sites that would allow the installation of other tinys made according to the same principle for other people waiting for housing.

Benoit's Tiny is installed on the Machureau site, made available to ADEFO by Le grand Dijon Métropole. These are two houses with an interior courtyard and a large garden
Benoit's tiny will be placed in the courtyard, near one of the houses and facing the garden.
This site is the subject of an urban planning project on the horizon of 1 to 2 years. This will require it to be moved to another site, also offered by Greater Dijon, and will allow ADEFO to continue its housing action for people in great difficulty.

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)
When circular economy and social and solidarity economy go hand in hand, it's a Tiny house built from reused materials, collected by the companions of the Emmaüs community of Norges la ville.
This Tiny is built with and for people in great precariousness and without fixed accommodation, today hosted by the Association Dijonnaise ADEFO .
The strength of this type of housing: it can be moved to where the housing need is.
