Tiny House Communities

Tiny House August 1, 2017

No one needs to share the news that the tiny house has become extremely popular due to its level of creativity and economics. You can make a tiny house out of just about anything these days, and this is another reason why they have become so popular. There are a multitude of tiny houses built solely from salvaged materials. So it would make sense that there would soon be communities full of tiny houses. All over the world there are tiny house communities, some have a main house where everyone shares the kitchen and showers, and often the WiFi. Here we share tiny house communities where all the residents have decided to take advantage of this new trend, which is a trend that is not going anywhere.

From Washington, DC, America’s capital, to Portland, Oregon, there are tiny house communities where the residents act as a huge family by helping each other with food, cooking, communal showers and WiFi sharing. In these communities there are also people who are the DIY crew that assist in keeping everything working and also act as help when other tiny house dwellers want to add-on or change the construction of their house. For example, Some tiny homes in a community are not built as mobile homes and then choose to become mobile. And it also works the other way around. Some dwellers in a community begin their tiny house lives wanting the freedom to move around and then enter a community they love and decide to stay. Either way, tiny house communities are a great way to live because you always have the support of others who know exactly what the pros and cons are of tiny house dwellers.

Below is a list of a tiny house communities and an eclectic tiny house hotel. We hope to inspire you, if living in a tiny house and/or a tiny house community is a dream of yours.
