Mini Homes of Manitoba owner says she feels sick, is trying to make things right

Three customers of Mini Homes of Manitoba say the company did not deliver the homes they ordered, and the chief of tornado-ravaged Long Plain has removed the company from being in charge of building new homes on the Manitoba First Nation.
The company, started in 2015 by Manitoba couple Darrell Manuliak and Anita Munn, once touted its compact, energy-efficient, mobile houses as a potential solution for the housing crisis on First Nations and said housing shouldn’t be a privilege.
Terry Anniuk couldn’t afford the cost of a home on Manitoba’s Hecla Island so he opted to buy one of the tiny houses instead. It seemed like a smart idea for Anniuk, who makes his living working on the island’s resort, but months later he still doesn’t have his home and said he’s out his life savings.
