This is the story of Northern California’s legal tiny house community called Park Delta bay in Isleton, California.
It’s an RV park that is home to more than 12 tiny homes! And they are all different. Rent and utilities are around $750 a month, but space is limited. And of course, that doesn’t include the cost of your tiny home. In this location, you are two hours from San Francisco.
This is to let you know about the new Delta Bay Tiny House Village in Northern California. It’s located about 31 miles from Concord/Walnut Creek and less than an hour away from Berkeley and downtown Sacramento.
It’s a 12-acre tiny house-friendly RV park and Tiny House Resort right on the San Joaquin River. Amenities include a pool, tennis courts, a marina for fishing and boating, and a dog park.
Monthly site fees start at just under $700 a month. You can buy a tiny house from ESCAPE and live in the area yourself and/or you can rent out your tiny house using Airbnb. There are already a few ESCAPE tiny homes in the park! If you’re interested in getting your own tiny house to live at this park, just fill out the form at the bottom of this page and someone from ESCAPE will be in touch to help get you started. If you already have a tiny home, you can contact Delta Bay directly and check out their rates here.
LEGAL Tiny House Community in Northern California: Delta Bay Tiny House Village
I started the life of a tiny dweller when I moved to the country in Northern California. I landed at a sweet community spot where other artists and farmers lived, and was thrilled at the idea of having my own space, no matter how tiny. It was common to find people living alternatively and exploring a range of creative and inexpensive spaces.
Many of these people were artists, and other creative types living comfortably in trailers, buses, cabins, attics, warehouses and barns. Over the course of 1 year I moved around the land from a veggie powered school bus, to a studio with an attic loft in a warehouse, and a small 8’x8′ shack. There was a community kitchen and bathroom available on the land, and the people shared these amenities. It was a very sweet and community interactive situation.
That experience gave me the notion that I could live with less furniture, and so I found ways to make my things more mobile in case I wanted to move my studio at any given opportunity. I learned more about what I could do without, and more about my basic needs in daily life.
As an artist, I tend to collect lots of little fascinating relics and natural objects as reference for my drawings. These objects don’t move everywhere with me, but have proven to be useful as they reflect the environment around me and appear in my paintings. In a special way, they are preserved in the artwork, so there is an ongoing acknowledgement that all stuff is replaceable and this helps me curb my long term hoarding. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

This is a guest post by Kelly Patton on her 432 sq. ft. Artist Studio Yurt in Northern California.
This yurt is comfortable rustic living, or as I call it, fancy camping. It is nestled in the woods of Northern California and it is the perfect dwelling for the nature artist and writer that lives here. It was built by the land owner, 15 years ago, I rent it and have lived here for 2 years. Inside you will find a full kitchen with a classic Wedgewood stove, and the very efficient country wood burning stove. Fragrant cedar siding lines the interior and four Low-E windows add natural light. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
In search of a more simple life and completeness, the couple, Michael and Diana lived in a 144 square foot tiny home in Northern California for seven years. They feel their house was not tiny but just right for them.
The tiny house does not feel small as you will see below. The natural sunlight and surrounding trees there are magical.
Diana says you enter a timeless time here. And it’s easy to forget about everything but the present moment.
The fireplace is a necessity in this home as it creates heat for the home and bathing water.
With no electricity which means no refrigerator, no meat, no ice cream Diana would cook beautifully colored fresh vegetables in one small cast iron pot over the open fire for their meals.
