Homelessness is a problem in every city in the country, and many times when we see tiny homes we think, “We need more of these for the homeless!” Community First! Village in Austin, Texas took that idea and brought it to life, with 51 acres of property with more than 500 homes for the chronically homeless.

But they’ve gone beyond just building houses — they’ve built a community. Residents find family and friends at the village, as well as work on the premises. There’s an art house, automotive shop, forge, organic garden and so much more designed to give the neighbors at the community purpose. The FAQ page answers tons of questions about the village here.

One of the ways they get revenue for the park is through some tiny house rentals where anyone can stay during a visit to Austin! Check that out here.

We have some great news about a new tiny house community set to open this fall on the Coosa River. The Seven Lilly Luxury Lots Minimal Lifestyle Living will welcome both tiny homes and RVs in a beautiful natural setting for a very affordable price.

The annual lot leases will start at $200 monthly (water included), and there will be 50amp power at each site (each lot responsible to activate power with Power Company).

Power and water should be in by November 2020, but you may want to call Shana at 256-493-2376 to discuss securing a spot. It looks like it’ll be a great community (but make sure to never send money unless it’s all checked out!).

While we introduced you to Tiny Tranquility back in 2018, much more has happened since then! The area is more developed, and has a waiting list for long-term stays, I’m afraid! There are 5 TruForm Tiny Houses at the park, which you can see in the video below.

The park has 43 sites which accept RVIA-certified tiny houses on wheels. Sites include water, power, and sewer hookups, free wifi, parking for one car (additional car — and boat — parking available) and between 2,400 and 4,000 square feet of lot space. The village now includes a Lodge complete with a 65″ flat screen TV, multiple seating areas, a wood stove, ping pong and pool tables, covered eating and grilling area and a fire pit/seating area. There’s also a 5,000 square foot dog park, a grassy park for people, and a 12,000 square foot greenhouse you can rent a part of to grow your own veggies!

Lot rent is around $575/month, plus electricity, and plot of greenhouse space is an additional $65-$150 a month. To request a spot on the waiting list or to visit the park, email [email protected].

In addition to long-term stays, the park also has a handful of tinies and Airstreams you can rent on a nightly basis for vacation. One of those, the Sandbug, was built by TruForm Tiny and is absolutely gorgeous. See pictures of it below, and rent it here.

One of the biggest questions we get here at Tiny House Talk is, “Where do I park it!?” Well, sister-brother duo Melissa and Jon Block of Tiny House Block transformed a run-down trailer park into California’s first legal tiny house village, where they not only welcome short and long term renters, but rent out land to existing tiny house owners. It’s located on the Pacific Crest Trail, in Mount Laguna, beautifully nestled in the trees.

Tiny House Block currently houses 17 tiny homes, each with its own unique theme (including the very popular 420 House, which is marijuana themed). If you’re looking to just try out the tiny life, you can stay for as little as one night and book via Airbnb. But if you’re interested in renting a tiny home long term, you can check out their price guide here and contact them for more details. You can even purchase one of the tiny homes from the village (prices vary).

Already have a tiny home? For $750 a month you get land, water, sewage and trash. Utilities typically come to another $50 per month.

Jenna at Tiny House Giant Journey did a great interview and video tour with Melissa and Jon, so be sure to check that out below! We’ll be following up with tours of each of the Tiny House Block homes, so make sure to sign up for our tiny house newsletter so you don’t miss any.
