Hi,

I love the small town feel, 25 mph speed limit, and island living surrounded by water.

Hi, I am recording a series of podcasts on communities in the greater Bay Area. If you are living in a community and want to be on the show I would love to hear from you. Thanks.

That sounds like a fantastic pod - what's it called?

Hi,
I saw this tiny house in the Sunset a couple days ago.
Anyone know the story?
Best,
Clay

Hi,

I hope everyone is well.

I have been following this idea for what seems like years and I'm wondering what progress has been made or where it is stuck?

My own experience is that anytime I have fully committed to something it has started within a few months.

I saw the Mac fund has some $100 million give away to solve a problem, this confirmed my belief that the resources are always available.

For myself I am unsure of how I could commit to living in a tiny house community in the city. I'm married and we have a house and child in Alameda. At most I could commit to being there a day or two a week.

I'm curious where everyone else is at, how much they can contribute or committ to a tiny house community?

I see a problem with terminology. A 'tiny house village' is really a variation on the trailer park. This would not work in a dense urban environment. So a 'tiny house village in San Francisco' probably would have to be a demonstration project that would highlight building design, and not the 'village' aspect. I'm more interested in the concept of permanent small homes as urban infill. Either single family or multi unit, as long as they can take advantage of lots that would otherwise deemed unbuildable primarily due to their size.

Hi Chelsea, I appreciate the response.
Yes I would love to connect with the folks who are working on this. One of my talents is creative problemy solving, especially when it comes to finding loopholes.
Thanks,
Clay
