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—everything from intimate backyard co-ops and eco-villages to resort style developments. Communities typically provide hassle-free tiny house parking with like-minded neighbors.
Tiny house communities come in several different types, each catering to a diverse crowd and addressing a different need. Some attract retirees looking to trade in square footage for free time. Others are experiments in how to solve the affordable housing crunch. During our tiny house travels, we have visited many distinct tiny home community models. You can choose from a broad variety of approaches, and models. Maybe you prefer a neighborhood feel or cohousing environment with shared resources—a kind of intentional community.
