News and information about making a legal place for Tiny Homes and creating a place for vulnerable people to regain their independence.

Welcome 2019

​ The new year always seems to provide an opportunity to review one's plans in a new light. Maybe it's the weather with winter taking away the distractions of many outdoor activities, or simply the realization that another year has gone, that I find I'm looking at what I want to do from a perspective of what I have done. I continue to tweak my plan...

Tiny Town Benefit 5

Why own the land you park your tiny home on?

It’s an asset that ties you down, limits when and where you can go, plus it’s a huge expense. In addition to purchasing the land, you will also need electricity, water, sewer, internet, and gas. These utilities require a further investment, they will need to be maintained and they add to the things that tie you to your land. At some time in the future, you may want to move. What then? Do you sell your tiny home with the land the way traditional homes are sold or do you try and sell the land alone? Either way, moving has now become a chore.

Tiny Towns will be owned by the not-for-profit Association so that revenues can be re-invested in the development and maintenance of the towns. Rents are planned to be kept low by using renewable resources to provide the utilities for its citizens. Citizens are free to move within the town and between towns by simply booking their new location online. All sites will provide complete hookups (included in the monthly rent) so it’s just plug-n-go to connect to your site. Services provided will include water, sewer, electricity, gas, TV, internet (fiber optic connection to each tiny home). We have designed our towns with 12 tiny homes to the acre, which we call a Pod (like a mini-neighborhood). Each site has a concrete pad with tie-downs to park on, lots of green space, a central common area and gardens for the residents of each Pod. Common areas are community maintained and socializing will be available for those that want to participate.

Tiny Towns complete the concept of tiny homes as an affordable housing option by removing the biggest upfront costs, the land purchase and utility installation. Looking forward, they will enable a tiny home’s mobility through plug-n-go and provide a network with access to all major cities. We believe that while tiny homes will expand our housing options, they also have the potential to expand other areas of our lives.

Healthy Tiny Homes

We are working to build #AccessibleTinyHomes #HealthyTinyHomes so that they can be used and enjoyed by everyone. With this new housing option comes the possibility of designing and building them so that they are healthy and safe. Join the discussion at https://www.tinytownassociation.com/board-discussions/categories/healthy-tiny-home.html and help us get it right. We want our model tiny home that we will be touring with this year to include all we can to be healthy, safe and accessible.
