This timber frame straw bale tiny house is about 500 sq. ft. inside with two levels which makes it great for a small family, couple, or even a single person. A great choice if you want to go ‘simple’ and ‘small’ but want a little bit of room to grow. (UPDATE: SOLD)
Once you walk inside you can see the amazing handmade spiral staircase. You can tell there’s a really warm feeling inside. The floors are made from reclaimed wood, it feels spacious inside, and it has an artistic touch throughout (see below).
The community is unique because it’s about 3 miles west of downtown Los Angeles and all residents are car-free (their main source of transportation are bicycles). Even better, the Los Angeles Ecovillage residents have created a bicycle shop, vegetable gardens, composting areas, clotheslines, fruit trees, micro-businesses, chickens, a food co-op, and more. We need more places like this, don’t we?
I’m excited about building up a list of up and coming as well as current tiny house communities and in this post I’m introducing you to the 333 acre Sacred Mountain Sanctuary Eco Village which is in Candler, North Carolina.
It’s near Asheville (about 25 minute drive away) and it is a new permaculture eco village that is still being developed. Right now it’s possible to arrange a visit, stay in a cabin, and learn about permaculture.
A few years ago, Alex did a piece on some land for sale near Dancing Rabbit Eco Village. Let’s return to Missouri to check out some of the most recent projects of this thriving intentional community. Brian Liloia goes by Ziggy and has been living at Dancing Rabbit Eco Village for nearly four years. He started his busy blog, The Year of Mud, soon after.
Ziggy has given the tiny house and natural building community a huge resource by continuing to document his construction projects through his blog. Today, hundreds of blog posts take readers step by step through his building process.
