One of my favorite things about doing email is the interesting tiny house ideas that come in while reading and replying to messages. Today I received the following email from a reader:
Have you done anything with Habitat on Tiny Homes. I have worked with people at church that are trying to get back on there feet and are single. They would love to own a home but would have no need for a full house. A tiny home subdivision on a bus route seems to me a viable idea. Big cities needing low income workers that want the respectability of owning a home.
Let me know if you have any input on this idea.
This got me thinking. What about a tiny house subdivision somewhere that is within a bus route for single people? Maybe small patches of tiny home communities can spring up within current communities. In a separate area from the rest of the homes there.
Tiny House Community Solution: Subdivisions?
You know how when you drive into some gated communities there is an area with condominiums, another one with townhouses, and an area for single family homes?
If not, can it be done in other areas instead? I know what you’re thinking. This can’t be done anywhere! Nobody would allow it. Well let’s go back to what our reader said. Remember he mentioned Habitat for Humanity?
If they’re already connecting with the community and finding places to build homes for folks in need then what if we attempted to work through them to secure a lot for a tiny house subdivision, possibly in one of the very same areas where they’re building Habitat for Humanity Homes? More ideas, too, below..
Tiny House Subdivision Location Ideas:
- RV Parks
- Vacant land
- Empty/unused parking lots
What if some communities opened up to the idea of an area for tiny houses? Do you even think this is possible? If it was possible, how do you think it could work? Please share what you like best about the idea in the comments. Thanks!
