Planning and Designs for the Tiny House Village Bay Area

What a journey!

The Tiny House Bay Area group has gone land scouting in May and June respectively. One of the parcels of land was a great one to model off of because of how secluded it was in its own little grove with lots of lush greenery with close enough proximity to San Francisco.

The working groups (on land scouting expeditions) have spoken to the city of Santa Rosa, a community focused real estate agent, and several other experts during two full Friday afternoons.

One of theĀ Tiny House Bay Area members is David Ludwig, who is an award-winning architect by trade, living in an Airstream (read: aerodynamic tiny home) for the past decade plus. He loves to dance and move and along with that movement comes his house. When ever he travels locally and needs a place to stay, he brings his casa right along with him. While David loves his Airstream, he’s ready to live in a community dedicated to tiny homes in a more lush environment. He’s the mastermind behind these designs!

One of the first parcels we ever looked at in Sebastopol is the landform used to create both the visual and financial models that we can present to cities and local jurisdictions as well as investors when the time comes.

This is a rough drawing at the moment – we’re still seeking feedback from the Tiny House Bay Area community and look forward to grabbing cold drinks in the sunshine on Tuesday, September 22nd at 7pm in Hayes Valley, San Francisco.

Tiny House Village Vision & Social – April 1st, 2015

Hey all, I finally finished writing It’s a Shareable Life and sent it off to the press, so I now have the time and energy to fulfill the dream / vision of creating a small, sustainable community with tiny houses in the outskirts of San Francisco. There are many, many tiny house enthusiasts in San Francisco and beyond – I know this because I get several emails daily from people who want to help!

Well, now is the time – let’s get together and strategize funding, property, and align on vision. I’m pretty clear on the vision I have for how this village can operate, but open to feedback and suggestion as well. On April 1st, we’re going to have a tiny house village social for tiny home enthusiasts, owners, people interested in communities, etc.

Also, check out the press the village received in Curbed SF this February: Tiny House Villages Seek Tiny Plots of Land in San Francisco.

I hope to see you soon!
