The Tiny Town Movement

Let's talk about making legal places for Tiny Homes. Tiny homes offer another way of addressing affordable housing and homelessness. These discussion areas provide a forum where we can develop the ideas and strategies that can make Tiny Towns a reality. To become part of the discussion simply Join the Association (it's Free) and then get into the conversation on topics that interest you.

We are working on creating a standard tiny home floorplan and design for our Transitional Housing Program. These homes will be rented to successful applicants that are working to move off socially assisted housing to owning their own tiny home. Participants may own the home that they rent by performing the required number of volunteer hours in the town over a 7 year period.

We have been working to design a Tiny Home on Wheels that includes the following necessities/features:

  • queen sized bed
  • shoe/boot storage under/accessible at the foot of the bed
  • under-bed storage
  • cabinet storage above bed
  • wardrobe: hanging and folded storage
  • coat hooks at the end of the wardrobe
  • privacy screen stored behind the wardrobe, that can fold-out when desired
  • 3 seater futon that can fold down into guest double bed
  • double glass entry doors
  • kitchen table that folds down for storage and has a leaf to expand for guests
  • 2 kitchen chairs + 2 folding guest chairs
  • gas range and stove
  • Full-size fridge
  • double kitchen sink
  • built-in dishwasher
  • pantry
  • overhead cabinets
  • 5' tub/shower combo
  • toilet
  • washer/dryer combo
  • sink/vanity
  • mirror/medicine cabinet
  • utility room
  • storage loft with dropdown stairs

Further design notes:

  • 8' 4" wide (+2" overhang on door side)
  • 36' long including hitch
  • 7.9" thick walls includes inside/outside wall cladding
  • shed style roof
  • + add windows above where possible
  • + Egress windows - bathroom, loft
  • 23 5/8" wide: fridge, range, pantry
  • standard dishwasher or RV drawer
  • standard size washer/dryer combo
  • 63 5/8" tub/shower
  • double doors 63" wide with glass
