Our first publically available manifesto.
We've added to the manifesto to address questions about tiny homeowner demographics and added an Appendix of key Blog topics.
This version of the Manifesto includes a look at the future value of tiny homes and if we expect tiny homes to remain affordable. We have added the Logan32 plans to the package and key points from the Tay Valley, Ontario bylaw amendments from 2018 that enable tiny homes on vacant lots and as inFill housing (secondary dwellings) on a property with an existing home. Yes, you can live tiny legally in Tay Valley Township today!
This is the latest Manifesto with some edits and a new section on Meeting Code with a hybrid trailer design.
An updated version of the Manifesto which now includes the details of the Pocket Community Demonstration Project - PowerPoint video along with the basic budget for the project. We have added the original Logan32 notes, plans along with an OBC Compendium relating to tiny homes, and the Tay Valley tiny home-related zoning by-laws.
We've spent the last week collecting and assembling all our design notes to include in this version of the Manifesto. The most notable additions are the Pocket Community and Urban Pocket sections, which expand on the Pocket Community - Tiny Town Demonstration Project.
The Pocket Community project is for a standalone, off-grid 12-tiny home Community with all our planned eco-living components. There has been growing interest from city's with universities to potentially build this type of project, to demonstrate and study tiny home community living.
The Urban Pocket is a smaller initiative that connects 4 or 8 tiny homes on a single property to city services, again as an alternative urban initiative.
This is our Canadian Elections 2019 Manifesto. It includes our plans to build a national tiny home project, consisting of 241,040 tiny homes/tiny home sites across Canada. Sites will be built in 1,554 cities and towns in all corners of Canada to provide affordable housing everywhere. The plan costs $2.9B, with a net cost to Canada of $1.45B, under $6K per home and includes over 15,500 transitional homes for the homeless.
