Big gift, tiny house

"Alpha" (lower left) built by David Latimer's New Frontier Tiny Homes was unveiled on Good Morning America in NYC to promote Freeform's giveaway.

A lucky, but deserving contestant will win a Tiny Home in Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas. The home is built by New Frontier Tiny Homes (Nashville), the enterprise of 2005 Furman University literature graduate, David Latimer. The house was unveiled during a segment of ABC’s Good Morning America, which aired outside the Oculus Transportation hub at the World Trade Center in New York City. The 245 square-foot home will be given away to a family impacted this year by hurricane, wildfire or other disaster. The house-on-wheels is indeed tiny, but it sports an equipped kitchen, space for a king-size bed, a bathroom including hot tub and shower, living space with dining table, two benches and storage system, and a drop-down deck with awning. More about the home may be found at FreeformĀ (formerly known as ABC Family).
