Tiny Home Communities & Parking
Across North America
With more and more people living tiny, the need for parking is at all-time high. The desire for community living is on the rise too. Across the nation, more than a dozen cities have become officially tiny-home friendly and communities of tiny homes are cropping up, of varying legal status—everything from intimate backyard co-ops and eco-villages to resort style developments.
