It seems only fitting that we would find a community of tiny house enthusiasts in Austin, Texas. After all, our house was built in Austin, and it's where our solar powered journey across America first began.
Austin Live|Work is located on the outskirts of town, close to the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) F1 racetrack. The founder's vision is to connect entrepreneurs, futurists, and forward-thinking individuals to work together to enrich the lives of one another and sustainably improve the land we inhabit.
For full-time tiny house dwellers, finding a permanent spot to park your home can sometimes be a bit of an uphill legal battle. For example, there was once a community in the small town of Spur, TX which was at the time designated as a "tiny house friendly" location. But after local politics created a fear of the community bringing in the wrong kind of residents, the town decided they would not issue utility permits (water, sewage, electricity), essentially making it impossible for the tiny living ideal to fully blossom.
That being said, Austin Live|Work offers much needed living space to tiny house dwellers who may not legally be able to live in their hometowns.
Staying at the tiny house community was our first real interaction with fellow tiny housers. We were one of nearly twenty tiny houses on the property, making Austin Live|Work one of, if not THE biggest tiny house communities in America!
Pictures Of The Tiny House Community
In addition to permanent parking, electricity, water, and sewage (greywater) hookups for tiny house dwellers, Austin Live|Work also offers tiny house rentals (so that you can see what it's like to live tiny) and a number of tiny houses for sale.
Tiny House Tours
Austin Live|Work offers a monthly tour of the tiny houses in their community which takes place at 10AM on the first Saturday of the month. RSVP is required on the Austin Tiny House Meetup Group.
