Santa Rosa Veterans Hall

A nearly complete Veterans Village in Santa Rosa, CA

This project came to Modular Lifestyles from Community Housing of Sonoma County  (https://www.communityhousingsc.org/) project manager. The thought was as a Tiny House RV Classification community project of 14 units for Veterans in Wheelchairs. We design and built a factory built prototype Tiny House “On Wheels” as a ADA/ADU for their consideration. We were not chosen for the RFP however this unit is now approved in the City of San Luis Obispo parcels for backyard living Seniors who are on Social Security and no hope for assistive living. The project photos show a Site Built community on a one acre commercial County location for affordable hosuing.

My recent visit to Hope Valley RV Resort in Salem, Oregon was to see how a community of Park Models was planned and constructed. I was told to go see in its early development. Originally Hope Valley was an old KOA campground for travel trailers. The owners decided to rebuild this campground and transformed it into streets of Tiny House for Village concept. It is advertised as “Simplify your lifestyles in our upscale “tiny home” community. The lots are Land Leased, with specific footprints for a Tiny Home owner to choose one of their the different floor plans. A Tiny House size is 12’ x 36’ front porch model size with a loft. The Homes all have long-lasting metal roofs and are built by Palm Harbor factory which is a few miles down the I-5 freeway in Millersburg, OR. The Tiny House is becoming more prevalent in its acceptance. More and more communities of Tiny houses appears to have a future for affordable housing solutions to meet citizens expectations for alternative housing.
