Over the last several years, my boyfriend and I have parked our tiny house in a wide variety of locations. By far our most frequent parking locale has been backyards. Always so convenient—less expensive than RV parks and close to town. These spots can be readily available, especially with many friends and family with sizable yards.
Recently, we met up with Alan, a DIY tiny house RV owner. He parked on a beautiful wooded piece of land, located in a rural neighborhood outside of a Colorado mountain town.
With more and more people going tiny, the need for parking is at an all-time high. The desire for tiny house community parking is on the rise too. Across the nation, more than a dozen cities have become officially tiny-friendly, and communities of tiny houses are cropping up, of varying legal status.
For anyone looking to leap into tiny house living, the age-old question is always, “where can I park?” The uncertainty, even anxiety, around this topic keeps a multitude of would-be tiny dwellers from pursuing the idea any further. The truth is there are more options available than most realize.
