Tiny House Communities
Spur, Texas "America's First Tiny House Friendly Town".
This west Texas town of around 1,000 people set out to become a place where you can
"build or bring your dream house no matter the size and set it on a foundation on a regular
city lot and live the way you choose."
So in 2014 they passed ordinances that made it easier for people that shared the dream of
tiny house living to buy a lot and purchase or build their home.
Located a little over an hour from Lubbock, this may be the perfect town to begin your tiny
house lifestyle with supportive, like minded people around you. Also, just 4 miles outside of
the city of Spur is a neighborhood of intentionally tiny communities called Makerton.
Lots in Makerton and Spur are very affordable and potential "new pioneers" are welcomed to
come and visit to decide if they would like to be a part of the community. The last time I
checked the jSpur, Texas Website they had sold 60 lots, 11 new tiny houses and welcomed
26 new pioneers in town.
The Village of Wildflowers
This is a 26 acre tiny home community in Flat Rock, NC. They have tiny homes for sale as a
primary residence or vacation home. Also available for rent. If you have never been to this
area it is beautiful mountainous country in North Carolina, just about a half hour south of
Asheville. There are numerous activities in the area in the summer including hiking, fishing,
zip lining and more. And in the winter it is located close to some great skiing.
Little River Escape Tiny House Community
This is a private gated community of tiny houses in Lookout Mountain Georgia on the Little
River. The community even includes a common guest house and pool. There are all kinds of
activities available in the area including hiking, floating down the river, fishing, exploring the
caves and waterfalls in the area and more.
Even though the community has all this great nature surrounding it, you are actually not that
far from some fairly decent urban areas as well. These tiny houses are located in the north
western corner of Georgia near the Tennessee border, so it is only about an hour to
Chattanooga, an hour and 45 minutes to Atlanta and just about 2 hours to Birmingham, AL.
Like most tiny house communities, they offer weekend tours and also offer prospective
buyers a chance to rent one of their models for a night or two to see how they like it.
