There’s more than safety in numbers when it comes to tiny homes. There’s also the ability to share your expertise and knowledge as well as learn from others.
So, if you want to live in a tiny home it can pay to seek out one of these 10 tiny house communities and pool your resources.
Our Top 10 Tiny House Communities
Habitats Tiny Homes | California
Based near San Diego, Habitats Tiny Homes has 20 homes there that are aimed at the “ecologically minded”.
They cost between $35,000 and $60,000 (though that doesn’t include the land) but that doesn’t mean that it’s going to be easy to join the community – California has a long track record of refusing licensing to unusual developments.
Spur | West Texas
Spur was the first town in the country to offer tiny houses a guaranteed building permit.
They won’t allow you to build just anything (sorry but no “yurts”) but as long as you have a reasonable plan then Spur is happy to let you and your tiny home move in.
Lemon Cove Village | Sequoia National Park
That means it’s easy to move and get started and if you haven’t got a “dream home” just yet, they can sell you a prefab.
Orlando Lakefront | Florida
They’ve only got a dozen or so tiny homes on the site at the moment but the Orlando Lakefront is enthusiastic to welcome more people and with lots at as little as $350 a month, we suspect that there will soon be a much larger tiny home community here.
Green Bridge Farm | Georgia
With plots from just $300 a month, Green Bridge Farm is a tiny home builders dream!
If you don’t want to lease then you can buy a small lot for as little as $30,000!
They are also on the doorstep of Savannah National Wildlife Refuge if you want to spend time out in nature enjoying the world.
Airstream Village | Nevada
They’ve got the homes waiting for you from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, all you need is the $1,200 rent which includes your Wi-Fi and the utility bills!
You can’t really argue with that and if you love alpacas, you’ll love Airstream Village.
Chafee County | Colorado
This is the biggest tiny home community in the country.
They have over 200 tiny homes (typical selling price is $60,000) and there are plenty of other similar communities across the whole of the state.
The management company is Sprout Tiny Homes, check them out.
Acme | Michigan
They’ve turned this old RV park into a tiny home lot – though the lots are not tiny with 5,000 Square feet being the typical size of the lot available.
This is a really nice place to set up if you need your own large garden to go with a small home.
Detroit – Michigan
Detroit’s been on hard times and now they’re regenerating with tiny homes as the star attraction.
If you’re looking for a city where they love tiny homes then you can do much worse than move to Detroit and enjoy the community there.
Portland | Oregon
Portland is also a city which is super friendly to tiny homes and if you want to set up in Oregon they’ve got quite the community waiting for you there.
