Development of a Tiny House Community in Canada

Today I read about a tiny house village that is under way…

And I’m really excited to tell you about it.

It’s planned to be on the southern tip of Vancouver Island in a place called Port Renfrew.

The title of the article is,

“A big future for tiny houses.”

tiny houses have a big future tiny house village in port renfrew

A tiny village of tiny cottages with prices set to be right around $130,000. This would get you a 400 square foot cottage on a waterfront property that used to be a park for recreational vehicle.

For $130k residents would get a wood framed cabin with vaulted ceilings, appliances, wood flooring, cedar shingles, metal roofs, and large covered decks. It’s planned to have about 200 residents and the little village will boast a general store, post office, cafes, pubs, and more.

The project is being developed by a company called Three Point Properties. This particular village is known as Wild Coast Cottages. If it’s successful it can become an example for future developments worldwide and an embracing of simplicity towards housing, especially in areas of need where organizations are spending more than this to assist the homeless.
