I have noticed many people in (and around) the Tiny House community wondering about building Tiny House Communities. I was out for a little drive around my community and decided to take a few peeks in at the beautiful Rideau Canal. On one of my stops I noticed a Tiny Cottage community which I realize is simply small rental cottages; however, I wonder since these are already built, would these not be a good location for a Tiny House Community? I also think that they set a precedence for Tiny House Communities to be allowed within Ontario. At least in the communities which have allowed these Tiny seasonal cottages. Any lawyers reading who have experience with municipal building codes, input would be excellent!
Adorable aren’t they?
As a group of eco oriented homesteaders, preppers,sustainability proponents, we’ve been forming a community for the past few years, with the intent of settling on a unique rural, semi-remote property in North Muskoka, with hundreds of acres crown land on either side.
A natural component of this is the Tiny House, and/or larger cabins on the ground.. Yurts, tepees,wofatis….to seasonally camp, build, 4-season retreat,or permanent homestead/retirement , with support of likeminded neighbors … It takes a village.
This is all do-able, legal , and at this point in global/social events, is timely and overdue as part of the precedent that more will be seeking in the next months/years.
Affordability,ownership, mobility, sustainability, eco respectful, consensual governance….all features of a viable alternative for the pioneers who share the vision.
There are many economically sustaining scenarios possible with an ingenious group like this as well.
Our final window of opportunity for this unique space is likely this spring…maybe till summer, but not likely.
If any share this vision, and seek co-operative community with the passion for living lighter/tinier on the land , contact asap to ride the crest with us…..henry
