Why the kind man built her the house
Elvis Summers who is said to have a place he resides in Los Angeles disclosed that the woman usually greets him each morning he passes by.
As time went on, the two began having conversations regularly and Smokie would always request for recyclables.
It was at that point Elvis learnt that she was homeless and took it upon himself to gift her a house.

Elvis had no prior knowledge about tiny houses until he stumbled upon an article about them. He got the materials and set to work.
The kind man shared a video capturing how he started and completed the tiny house within the period of 5 days.
