This could be very nice & I think the price is good. I’m just wondering about the Rules and if concrete will be poured? Will porches be permitted?
Hello Karen, I am just now seeing comments on this posting. I did not have that option turned on.
In answer to your questions, porches are allowed, and probably no concrete, although if someone wanted to pour a pad, I would at least listen to and consider their request.
For 400 bucks a month, you could buy your own piece of land. Seems a tad steep. Especially in Texas. Ugh. And yes, I lived in Texas for a while. Way too hot. I’m waiting for a tiny community in Maine or Vermont, LOL.
Phatkhat, it’s a developing community, they’re starting from scratch… So you’re helping fund that development if you join in but means everyone will get common amenities as the community is developed…
Shared outdoor kitchen and fireplace being the early examples they’re giving…
Installing infrastructure will take time and funds but means they can offer more later and costs may go down once more people are involved…
Truth be told, it sounds like a tiny house mobile home park. Not an attractive idea for me, but if you like it, go for it. I’d find it hard to give up my privacy enjoyed on the current 20 acre place that ended up being less mortgage than the $400 lot rent you are speaking of. Of course, I live in an area where there are NO restrictions, so zoning isn’t an issue, either.
I’m kind of anti-social in a lot of ways, and living closely with a lot of other people isn’t my cuppa. And certainly “shared amenities” are NOT attractive. Lived in enough apartment complexes with those, and suffered through pool parties, barbecues, etc.
Depends where you live, but private infrastructure doesn’t have to be awfully expensive, either. And you are INVESTING in something you will own. Why pay into someone ELSE’s investment, unless these are actually some sort of condo association where you will own your lot outright at some point.
Oh. One more thing. I see maybe one oak tree. The rest are mesquites. This kind of indicates the sort of environment favored by rattlesnakes. ;o) Just sayin’… Rattlers are especially bad this year, and a lot of places have signs warning of them.
Sure, if you’re anti-social or just like your privacy and can afford to buy land outright then that’s certainly an option…
However, many people can’t afford both land and a house at the same time!
Putting away the 400 a month may add up to enough, but that’s over time… The problem is people need someplace to park their home until then.
While shared amenities means shared costs, which means lower individual costs that in turn help people save so someday they can opt to buy their own land.
This is hardly the only option, however, and yes there are places that will offer rent to own as well, but that means a stronger commitment to be a permanent part of the community and will usually mean a higher pay in cost.
At least with a rental you can always leave and that may suite those who wish to travel as a better alternative for their chosen lifestyle…
While yet others may do a combination… Owning land in a place they can use as their home base, but renting places as they travel… Or, if they can afford it, owning land in multiple locations and just traveling between them.
Sure, there’s very few options that will appeal to everyone but a range of options allows for flexibility of choices that can cover a wider range of people’s needs and ultimately the point is to be able to live your life the way you wish to and the more choices available then the easier that goal becomes…
Anywhere with shade can be attractive to rattlesnakes… brush piles, any kind of rat nests, under rocks…
But wherever you go, unless it’s a city, you have to be aware of the native wildlife…
Did you miss where I said I lived in Texas for a while? LOL. But evidently the rattlesnake problem is growing worse with climate change, and they are invading towns and places they didn’t go before.
I live in Arkansas, in the boonies, and have never seen a rattlesnake, though I’m sure they are out there. We have copperheads, mostly. I encourage the black snakes to hang around for that reason. I really don’t care for snakes at all.
I’m sure there are “things” in the woods in Maine, but rattlesnakes are not one of them. If we ever decide to pack and go, that’s where it will be.
No, I didn’t miss that you stated you had lived in Texas for awhile… It just didn’t change anything of what was stated.
Besides, rattlesnakes aren’t really a problem in Texas…
Only 15 of the approximately 113 species and subspecies of snakes found in Texas are venomous, and some of those are only in remote areas where contact with humans is rare and snakes in general will avoid people.
The rate of reported snake bites hasn’t really increased over the years, unless you have a health issue you can usually drive yourself to the nearest medical facility to be treated for a snake bit, and frankly most Texans would be more concerned about the skeeters and termites and drunk drivers than snakes.
Anyway, a little historical note is that Maine once had the Timber Rattlesnake but not anymore… So you’re timing is perfect ;-p
The remaining snakes in Maine are the non-venomous kind… So you may still run into snakes in Maine and they may still bite you but you’ll just need a band-aid afterward…
Meaning, you’ll mainly only have to worry about Coyotes, brown and black bears, Canadian Lynxs and Bobcats… Moose and whitetail deer may be driving hazards to watch out for, with the Moose possibly running you down if you surprise it and are too close… Raccoons, Bats, and an assortment of similar small mammals which can have rabies… and the occasional skunk… Though, they say wolves have made a comeback in certain parts of Maine…
While possibly worse than rattlesnakes… Ticks with Lyme Disease!
But don’t worry, the CDC is working on a Lyme Disease vaccine… Though, I don’t know if that will cover anaplasmosis and babesiosis, which you can also get from a single Tick bite… But they’re fast tracking the vaccine, so it should get approval pretty soon…
Here in Arkansas we have black bears, coyotes – oh, Dog, do we have coyotes! We have deer, and my truck has a deer scar, so… meh. We also have rabies here, some years more than others. Raccoons, bats, possums, skunks, etc. They say there are wolves here, too. Never seen one. There ARE bobcats in the wilderness, though they avoid people.
While it’s true we don’t have as much Lyme down here, there is a new tickborne virus called Heartland. It is more often fatal than Lyme.
I know they have black flies and mosquitoes up north, but we have horseflies and mosquitos. And chiggers. Every place has some nasty bugs, I suppose.
As to rattlesnakes in Texas… Hubs is a trucker and travels Texas every week. Last week he ran over a huge one. And in Amarillo, the shipper has signs out to watch out for rattlers.
I’ve pretty much lived in the country all my life. I cope with the beasties. But like Indiana Jones, I hate snakes. I tolerate the non-venomous ones. I really pointed out about the snakes for anyone tempted to go to Wimberly or Spur that may not want to be around them.
Anyway, I’m one of those odd people that actually likes winter. ;o) And, as a survivor of an EF4 tornado, I find the idea of a place with few and weak tornadoes a plus.
I hear the nastiest bugs are endemic worldwide. Dey’z called politicians. rg&dfc
Fair enough, weather/climate zone is one of the things people should consider when choosing a place to live. Things like whether you’ll have to worry about Tornadoes are a very valid thing to consider with a THOW…
Though, some things are only issues when certain weather conditions are met… Like flooding will bring out many animals you may not normally ever see.
Droughts and famine can make normally harmless animals ravenous and dangerous and these conditions can make certain diseases more prevalent and cause outbreaks as well…
Then there’s all the different types of natural hazards like landslides, mudslides, sinkholes, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.
And of course where also determines how you should have your Tiny House designed to handle the weather/climate of where you wish to live.
Temperature extremes across the country can be as high as 135 F to as low as -100 F… All besides worrying about extremes like tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, forest fires, simple high speed winds, heavy snowfall, landslides/mudslides, sinkholes, flooding, and other natural hazards…
So all things to keep in mind when planning a move, especially if doing so with a THOW… Along with the usual worries about zoning, distance to nearest store, hospitals, etc.
All in all, these are just many of the things to keep in mind when traveling but they are pretty much all manageable as long as people are aware of them and people can just consider them some of the factors that helps keep life interesting…
It sounds like Maine will be a good fit for you…
Oh, definitely agree on that world wide epidemic ;-p
This is my Tiny House rental site property in Wimberley. I was reading the comment thread and thought I would respond in order to clarify some misperceptions.
First, I have lived in this area for 36 years, am very outdoorsy, and haven’t seen a rattlesnake in decades. Almost everyone I know kills any snake on first sight, venomnous or not. Rattlesnakes used to be sighted regularly when I first moved here, but are a rarity now.
Second, there are no mesquite trees on this property, or anywhere around there that I know of. Mesquite are quite common in some areas of Texas, but not so much in the Hill Country. All of these sites are shaded by oak trees. There are also many “cedar” trees around (actually ashe junipers).
Third, Wimberley is a very hot area, both in the daytime summer temperatures, and in real estate demand. (Summer evenings are cool, in the 70s, and the rest of the year is quite pleasant.
Fourth, we don’t have tornadoes in the Hill Country. The variable topography of the hills prevents the conditions favorable to tornadoes that are unfortunately common in “tornado alley”, to the north of the Hill Country.
Inexpensive places to live in this area are few and far between. These Tiny House sites are one option, and the two current tenants are quite happy living there. I am still looking for two more folks who will be a good fit for the place. Thanks for noticing my ad, and I hope y’all find the right spot to call ‘home’.
Do you still have sites available
