In Toledo, Ohio, a small village is making a big impact on its community. Bluff Street Village, a project initiated by the Monroe Street Neighborhood Center, has recently welcomed six new tiny homes into its fold. These compact dwellings, spanning only 400 square feet each, may be small in size, but they bring about significant positive changes for the neighborhood. Let’s delve into the story behind Bluff Street Village and its mission to create a transformative living experience.
For years, the organizers of Bluff Street Village pondered over the possibilities for their neighborhood. They sought ways to revitalize the area and foster a sense of pride among residents. In 2020, they embarked on a groundbreaking journey, and the result was the construction of six charming tiny homes just off Bluff Street in Rosedale. Spearheaded by Pastor Larry Clark, the project aims to provide affordable housing and turn individuals into first-time homeowners in approximately seven years, all for around $400 per month.
The structure is 12-ft. wide by 28.5-ft. long, 342-sq.-ft., and it’s for sale out of Springfield, Ohio for $15,000. What do you think? Is it a good deal? Does it seem well-built to you? Would you live in a barn cabin like this?
This is The Homestead Tiny Cabin #20. It’s a part of a group of vacation cabins at Getaway Cabins in Hocking Hills, Ohio. One of the best parts is when you walk inside, it feels huge because of the ultra-high ceilings.
They have many cabins, and this is only one of them. It features a living area, kitchen, bathroom, and an upstairs sleeping loft with room to stand. There’s also a private outdoor area with a hot tub! Very nice. What do you think? Wouldn’t this be a great way to live simply? In a cabin like this?
This is a 160 sq. ft. shipping container tiny house by Katz Box out of Columbus, Ohio. This model is called The Calico.
The Calico Home is designed to grow. Built as an efficiency unit, this 160 square foot home was created to inspire a new generation of homeowners to think small (and in stages). Due to its stature and mobile features, the home is designed to scale from one to three units based on the owners needs.
It’s kind of like a multi-functional studio apartment in a box, isn’t it? What do you think? To explore more amazing tiny homes like this, join our Tiny House Newsletter. It’s free and you’ll be glad you did! You even get free downloadable tiny house plans just for joining!
