Hurricane Ian Survivor’s New Life in The Oaks Tampa Bay Village


This post contains affiliate links.

Mark Wildman lost nearly everything in Hurricane Ian and didn’t know where to begin — but when he found The Oaks, a new tiny house village in Tampa, Florida, he found an affordable option for restarting his life. He lives in a Boho XL and was one of the first people to move in! You can hear more of his story below.

Just a few miles from where Mark’s original home was destroyed in Ft. Meyers, Joe’s Boho XL (pictured below) survived the hurricane, even though his vehicle didn’t. ESCAPE builds truly high-quality homes!
