View this video from our September workshop, hosted with LATCH Collective!
Participants put questions up on the wall, and then we had a discussion about the information available. Tiny house communities are not yet a thing, but we are going to change that! The interest is there, and people are excited. The barriers and considerations are the zoning (needs to be multi-family or multiple properties) and the time and effort needed to create something that doesn’t yet exist. The next steps are building our communication and decision-making skills as a community, so that the group is strong and grounded in a shared vision!
The design charrette for a tiny house village was a great exercise! I found that I had so many similarities to what others had in their designs. A main feature was central community gathering space where residents can eat, play, have a concert, sit around a fire, and other wonderful ideas. There were so many new people, as well. This movement is growing, and we can create this.
This was part of the Tiny House Design Expo organized by LATCH Collective, an amazing group of tiny house enthusiasts. Thanks to LATCH advocacy, the City of Los Angeles is taking our ideas into account as they design new planning laws for backyard homes. This village idea could also be presented to planners as an example of where we want to live.
