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.

Tiny Home Community Variables:

Intended only for moveable tiny houses, aka tiny house on wheels, but often a combination of THOWs and tiny houses on foundation, park models & RVs

Include DIY built tiny homes and/or professionally built & manufactured

Rentals—offers lot rentals and/or a selection of tiny house rentals (short or long term)

Lifestyle Choice - Created for those who've downsized by choice

Created for low-income housing, including full-time, part-time and/or transitional housing

Legal status— permitted and zoned specifically for tiny houses, zoned for RVs, sanctioned by the city as a pilot project or under the radar. See our docu-series Living Tiny Legally to learn more.
