Four Lights Tiny House Company



Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

My plans for a village had to be put on hold for a couple years due to unforeseen personal circumstances. They'd still be on the back burner if not for my new developer-friend, Vince Rizzo . Vince is, apparently, the answer to my prayers for someone who'll take care of zoning, permitting and all the other developer-stuff I'd rather not do. 

New site, new plan

I've come up with a new site plan for the community. Unlike my previous designs, this one is designed specifically for an existing piece of land. Nothing's set in stone yet, but it's encouraging that this property has recently come up for sale and that local officials love the idea of a tiny house village in Sonoma County. That it's the same lot I identified seven years ago as the perfect location for what I have in mind, is also encouraging. The Universe conspires. 

Part of my intention with the village is to provide myself and my two little boys with a nice place to live that doesn't cost a fortune. I was, at one point, using the term "co-housing for the antisocial" to describe my vision for the complex, but some folks didn't get it. Company and solitude are most appreciated when they're not forced on us—my village design provides ample room for both. I want to live where I can disappear into my little house for days while always knowing that my neighbors are near and that they've got my back. My boys and I have been needing a supportive community, like this one, for a long time. Judging by the positive response to the idea of a tiny house village, it seems we're not alone.  

A contagious model of efficiency

For the Tiny House Village idea to spread, it will have to demonstrate how affordable, sustainable and livable a neighborhood can be. Yes, I just used two adjectives that I generally try to avoid when describing what I do. Please know that when I say "affordable" I'm not talking about unnecessarily wide streets lined with artificially subsidized houses—all clad in the same beige T-1-11 siding (I like to call beige the color of shame). When I say "sustainable" I don't mean what the word and it's correlate "green" have come to mean (i.e. almost nothing) when used to market pretty much everything. Before "green" and "sustainable" became adjectives for something and nothing in particular, they were just shorthand for "efficient". Efficiency doesn't pose affordability and quality as opposites. They're parts of the same equation. 

This community will have to be more than just a "tiny house village" too. The idea of designing a "tiny house village" doesn't excite me any more than the idea of designing a "tiny house" does. What excites me is designing a vital place where everything's there for a reason and the relationship between these essential parts to each other, and their whole, makes perfect sense. Reducing our collective idea of home (already one of the most meaningful and useful constructs we've got) down until essential meaning and utility are all that's left—THAT'S my idea of a good time. 

A Much needed alternative in a pricey area

The lot we've chosen is near Santa Rosa, California. This part of the world is as expensive as it is beautiful, so it's an ideal spot for a bunch of little houses. There's a dire need for truly affordable homes in this, and many other, pricey areas. Smaller, more efficient houses of quality fit the bill. 

About a third of the 13 acre property will be occupied by a high-density core comprised of 60 houses, a 2,300 square foot common house, a community workshop, and more than 2,000 linear feet of gently winding walkways to connect it all. The houses will range from about 100 to 400 s.f.. Each will have its own storage shed and will sit on its own 25' x 50' (minimum) parcel. A great room with a big fireplace will occupy most of the common house. A shared kitchen and bathroom and 12 small guest rooms will occupy the rest. Covered parking for more than 64 bikes and one and a half open-air parking spots per house are integral to the design. A portion of the remaining land will, most likely, be used for lower-density housing. The seven or eight acres beyond that are likely to stay as is.     

The location feels rural and overlooks one of the state's most biodiverse wildlife habitats, but it's only a 4-minute-walk from a grocery store, a coffee shop and a park. The village has been designed as urban infill so residents won't have to do much driving. 

I can't make any promises, but I'm still hoping that, in spite of all my unexpected delays, we can still break ground before year's end.

This is the second time I’ve found myself getting email about someone trying to start a community in Santa Rosa, and I’m going to ask you two questions I asked the other folks.

The Rogers Creek-Calaveras fault is now considered the most dangerous in the Bay Area and that fault runs under or near every single hospital in the Santa Rosa area. It is anticipated that a major event along the fault will cripple both city and county medical services. How is your community incorporating seismic planning given that the location is going to either be within a few miles of the actual fault zone or may even be on it?

Also, how will this community address water use and the terrible CA drought?

Susan:

I moved from Sonoma County because I could no longer afford it. But I want to come back and live in a small space with room for a garden and some chickens. This looks like the perfect place. Please keep us updated!

May 15 2015 at 09:05 AM

Miranda:

I, too, am VERY interested. In fact, I started saving money last year. I love the idea of a tiny house community; you get both quiet, alone time and a community of like-minded people. I don’t know a single person in my area who is interested in living tiny. I’m ready to move cross country when this place opens!

Couple of questions:
How will people know when you are taking applications or whatnot?
Will all the homes be built in advance, or will people have the option of choosing their home design?
Will residents own the homes or rent them?

Keep us updated please!

Otessa Regina Compton:

GREAT CONCEPT, DOES IT HAVE SAFETY FEATURES ON STAIRS AND/OR LOFTS, AND WOULD THIS BE SOMETHING SENIORS CAN CONSIDER??? SURE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE INTERIORS OF THESE HOMES. MORE SHOULD BE MADE NATIONWIDE!!!

May 15 2015 at 11:05 AM

Diane:

I very much hope the project proceeds as planned and is a tremendous success. And that it has a ripple effect nationwide.

thank you Jay, great! life is sometimes a matter of hanging on until the dust settles. take good care

May 15 2015 at 04:05 PM

Stephanie:

This is awesome! This is exactly the kind of thing I’ve been thinking about for years! Kudos to you for getting it up off the ground :)

May 16 2015 at 07:05 AM

Laura Aronson :

This looks like such an exciting project. We’ve been looking into a move into a smaller (tiny) home and this looks right up our alley! Please keep me posted. We would like it very much if you would add us to your wait list. Wishing you the very best. :)

May 16 2015 at 08:05 AM

Hannah:

Wow, this looks fantastic! It wouldn’t work for my husband and I right now, but I would love to live somewhere like this someday. My question is, however, what are you going to do with people who have two cars and want to keep them both? Is the 1.5 just an average, assuming some will have one and some will have two and then some extra for visitor parking? Or is being a one-car family a requirement?

May 16 2015 at 10:05 AM

Kate:

Congradulations. Best wishes for your new old venture. Hope you and your children are home soon.

Mandi Pimental:

my husband and I are looking to build of purchase a tiny house in California and this community would be a dream! (Walking to the store?!) (California nature views) just what we’re looking for. We are looking for 400 sq ft as we plan to raise our little in a tiny house. Would love to be put on your list of any further information that comes to light on this project. Thank you!!

Just less cookie cutter.

This is so exciting. How much is one of the denser spaces going to cost a month??? Best of luck and may this be reality soooon!!!!

SJ Weigel:

Great news! At one point I was on an email list for the village, or so I thought, but I found out about this posting on a FB group. Is there a list of interested parties? And how might we be added? Thanks much,
Stephanie

Debbie Williams:

I have been anxiously staying tuned for news on your tiny home community. I would also like to know if you are taking names for a waiting list of folks who want to live in your TH community. I am very interested.

Many thanks for keeping up updated.

Congratulations on your renewed interest in this project. Interested in the “co-housing for the antisocial” village. Keep us posted.

Mark Hamilton:

This is fantastic news. I have dreamed of such for many years, but the lack of legal places to live (given zoning, etc.) has kept me from building. I AM more than ready to sell my house, purchase a plot, and have my own 400 ‘tiny house’ built and set up (hopefully I don’t have to purchase a pre-made cookie cutter house).

Heck, I even picked out a couple of lots that look idea for my 400 sq ft tiny home. As soon as deposits are ready, I am ready.

May 16 2015 at 09:05 PM

Maggie:

So excited you’re going forward with this project! I can’t wait to hear more details, including how it’ll be decided who gets to be a part of this tiny slice of paradise. :-)

May 16 2015 at 09:05 PM

Teri Foster:

Jay, will you be selling the spaces or will there be some for folks like me who need to rent a space?
So glad it’s finally happening for you!

May 16 2015 at 10:05 PM

Ina:

I’m so excited to read this and can’t wait. This is exactly the kind of community I’ve been hoping and waiting for. Prayers answered. And for this I will even move up north rather than down south. Thank you for your vision and perseverance, Jay. I can’t wait to see this come to life. Where do we sign up? ;)

May 17 2015 at 12:05 AM

Dan:

Put us on your very interested list! What about pets? Any community rules on that yet? What about some kind of loose governing body?

May 17 2015 at 04:05 AM

Deirdre:

That is awesome! We are very interested. I am also a freelance features writer— please stay in touch with news about this development!

I am highly interested in living in this community. How can I purchase a tiny home in this new community?

May 17 2015 at 08:05 PM

Jean mckay:

Hi Jay,
We are, hopefully, on the list for a lot at the Napolean Complex. We will have our own tiny house from a different builder. Are you accepting tiny houses other than your own? It is a 440 sqft footprint, with a 200sqft loft.

Thanks for your time…..We.Can’t.Wait.

May 18 2015 at 06:05 PM

Nyander:

I would love to know more about this! I signed up with email list. Too bad there will only be 60 lots. I want to be on board with the simpler life and I like the size they are thinking of the homes.

May 19 2015 at 07:05 AM

Holly:

I will be interested if you branch out to other areas .Specifically, WA State. Great idea for those of us in retirement and want to scale down, but love community.
Thank you Jay.

Ina Layus:

I’m so excited by this news! I had been , rather impatiently, waiting for news on your project. I’m sorry to hear about your “unforeseen personal circumstances” and hope all is good, now. As some of the people before me, I am very interested in living in a community exactly as you describe. I’m a single Mom, soon to be empty nester as my little one heads off to college this fall, and without any family in this country a community such as this one is exactly what I’m looking for. A place where I can have complete solitude if I want to but can step out of my door and be surrounded by people, and hopefully lots of kids and laughter and community.
I’m currently in the planning stages for my Tiny House, found a builder and am working on finding a private investor to loan me the funds, as conventional financing is not in the cards for me. But before I go too far in planning, would we be allowed to bring in our own Tiny Houses, or is it a community which will be completely build and we will just buy the floor plan we most love? How do we get on a waiting list and when do you expect this to be ready for occupancy?

Thank you so much for all you do, for being a pioneer in this whole effort of living smaller, simpler lives.

All my best to you and I can’t wait!

I would love to be part of this! Please let me know how I can help.

May 27 2015 at 10:05 PM

Miranda:

I, too, am VERY interested. If there is a waiting list or pre-purchase option, I am all in. Every year I visit Northern California for my vacation. It feels like home to me, and I very much want to move there. As soon as I read about your tiny home community it seemed like a good fit for me because it offers the best of both worlds. I even have a savings account I contribute to each month earmarked for my tiny house. I look forward to more updates!

May 31 2015 at 08:05 AM

Elizabeth Jose:

Excited to read this and wondering if/hoping that we can expect a similar positive update on the U-House soon. I think I have last year’s teaser page memorized. Might you at least be selling the plans? Please, throw us a bone! :)

May 31 2015 at 05:05 PM

Joel:

Essentially, the Napolean Complex has turned into a trailer park, correct? People won’t be able to buy lots, they’ll have to pay lot rent. Everyone will have to pay for the common house, regardless if they use it?

June 02 2015 at 09:06 AM

Wendy Miller:

Dear Jay,
Your project is exactly what I have been looking for – for many, many years. I have subscribed to the newsletter and have just sold my old property in France to move back to the States to the Santa Rosa area. I am passionately interested in being an owner, resident & part of the community you are creating – not only for its inherent values but because I love small, economical/ecological living. I am ready to commit time, energy, enthusiasm, finances, and all my skills to the project. I am crossing my fingers that you or someone on the team could get in touch – many thanks!

June 04 2015 at 12:06 PM

Rik:

hey Jay —
thanks for the update! what’s the next step for any of us who are interested in participating?
any gatherings coming up for interested parties?
thanks!

Jean McKay :

Hi Jay…
Please put us on the list for a parcel. We will begin building our tiny house (440sqft, with an add’l 200sqft loft) as soon as the complex is ready for inhabiting…..this is SO exciting…..j

June 09 2015 at 06:06 PM

Jennifer:

This will revive the American Dream that is dying — owning a home. And much more sustainable! Great possibilities for edible permaculture. Count me IN please.

June 19 2015 at 03:06 PM

Barbara Larimer:

Hello Jay, I would love to hear more about your plans and be on the list as potential resident. I love the tiny house concept but so often see them in the alone and isolated or in someone’s driveway or back yard. I love the idea of a community and am excited to learn more about your plans and how one might join the process. Thanks for your vision!

June 23 2015 at 03:06 PM

Hi……..I would love to see these when they are ready tobe sold….i am interested in possibly purchasing one…….

Thank you,

Deborah Linton:

Will buyers be able bring in their own tiny houses as opposed to buying a developer-planned & -designed tiny house? I was hoping the village would be ready to open sometime in the next year as I will have a tiny house by June or July of next year. Sounds like the village likely won’t be open by then, correct?

hehe, I tried to enter “4 squared” for the answer to 8 + 8. oh, well.

June 26 2015 at 08:06 AM

gabriella cannon:

Hi Jay! I am in the planning stages of building a mobile tiny house of my own using one of your designs. I am wondering if there will be rental only options in the village for folks like me. I have no doubt you are well aware that one major obstacles to living in a tiny house is figuring out where to put it! :) I’ve been following your posts with interest. Looking forward to hearing more details!

July 01 2015 at 07:07 AM

Susan:

I would like a 400 s.f. house in this complex, too. This has been my dream for years! Please do let us know how to get in on the ground floor. I am so there! :-)

Maureen:

I am very interested in living in your tiny house community. I’ve been researching tiny houses for awhile and am looking for a place to put my tiny house once I’ve built or purchased it. I’ve found that it’s a little difficult to find a location to put a tiny house. I would most likely want something around 200 square feet. When will more information be available about this community?

I am excited to learn about the community. I unfortunately am a new divorcee after over 40 years of marriage. So I am excited to learn more of a new path of life, and discover myself. I just turned 60 and what a way to start my new age.

Diana Holmes:

Hi
I have been looking at plans of tiny houses and have found one I particularly like – My husband is a contractor and will build it for us. My question is – are you planning on building all the tiny houses and will they all be your designs?
Are you willing to sell a plot to someone who has built their tiny house and wants to move it to your community? It is more of a modern design than your houses – but by a well known tiny house designer and builder (Andrew and Gabrielle Morrison). Thank you. Diana Holmes

This seems perfect! I would love to live here! How can I help with this project? I have time to help as I just became an empty nester. I was previously a stay at home mom of five children … busy, busy working at their school and part time fitness instructor. Now looking forward to a cozy, small home in a community and serving others with my whole heart.

This is amazing news! I have been keeping tabs on this project since you first posted it on the website, and I am now thoroughly enamored. Currently, I already live in the bay area and am very actively fantasizing about the tiny house life in Sonoma county. Any idea what commuting to the city from the site might look like?

August 04 2015 at 04:08 PM

Deborah Linton:

Glad to see some progress in the planning for the Napoleon Complex. I am definitely interested, and will be ready to build my tiny house by Spring 2016. Timing sounds about right for me, so please keep me informed as plans move forward. Happy to help with any hands-on work for the village development and/or graphic design services that might be needed.

i too an interested in the tiny house village and would like to be kept informed as houses are able to be purchased (or built).

August 11 2015 at 08:08 AM

Anita:

On your next update, could you say a little more about the houses? Will they be built by the “village” and then purchased by the residents? Or can people design, build, and transport their own house to the village? Thank you, this sounds like a great idea.

August 15 2015 at 02:08 PM

Robin:

Hi!
So happy to hear that despite all the challenges, it is moving forward! Adaption and evolution is what the movement is about so I hope all parties involved are understanding of the delays or set backs.
I know you get so many inquiries, so we appreciate your patience.
Will this community offer rental plots for already existing tiny home who wish to be a part of the community?
Is there a waiting list available?
Thanks and looking forward to the next update!

Tracey embring :

Well it looks like more people than there are lots in the Napoleon complex have beaten me to the punch. But I’ll add my interest to theirs. I’m currently living in Santa Rosa in a studio apartment. Unfortunately it is not a permanent living situation so I have been looking into the tiny house concept as my next move. I’m used to living minimally and an empty nester, recently divorced “mature” person. I would love nothing more than being able to continue living small and living in community AND staying in Sonoma county! Tiny house living seems to mean either living in an RV park or buying property, neither of which offer much community. Or being willing to move somewhere else to one of the handful of communities in other parts of the country!

September 02 2015 at 01:09 AM

Dan & Pam:

I cannot express how excited my wife and I are about this project. We want to move to the Sonoma / Napa area, and in fact, into a tiny home! It’s like you are our dream come true. I retire in 5 years and truly hope you will have this community developed by then. We’ll be watching very closely. Best of luck!

September 04 2015 at 03:09 PM

Debby:

Would love to be a part of this conscious community of like-minded people. Your timing of breaking ground end of year aligns perfectly with selling my 1,400 sq ft home in Carlsbad and moving into a tiny home community. I’ve been downsizing my belongings and ready to live simpler, with more freedom, and like-minded community. Please contact me when you start your wait list. I am ready for this next chapter and would love to join you and be integral part of the community. I am happy to support the development and progression offering administrative and organizational support! Would be wonderful to help build the community!

Jay,
What is the latest news? Has the land been purchased? How much will monthly lot rent cost? I am about to order a 400 sf tiny home, and would be very interested in your tiny house village as a place to live, if the price works for me.

September 08 2015 at 07:09 AM

Pina Wright:

Hi,

This is the way of the future! I would like to find out how to get into this mini house community and what the anticipated costs will be. Eager to hear back and to get out of So Cal.

I’ve been living in Sebastopol and trying to figure out how to do a tiny house on a small lot. I’ve found small lots hard to find and the permitting process is a bit overwhelming. I love your idea! I would be happy to help work on the larger plan. I tried to build a chicken coop last year and my kids have made me promise to not build the tiny house myself. Please let me know how to help. Thank you.

My tiny house is on order! Just in under 400 sf, it is a completely customized park model. I would love to live in this community!

What is the status of the purchase of the land?

Count me in!

October 13 2015 at 07:10 AM

Evelyn Berkey:

I hope this goes though soon and definitely want on the list to get one any more information about cost and timing would be great. Anything those of us who are interested in this project could do to help ?

Timmie Ballard:

I have been considering the same idea. Except we have property in 29 Palms and plan on dividing it into smaller plots so as to build tiny homes on it and then rent them very cheaply to the military that has its base less than 4 blocks away from us. The biggest problem is getting the money together to build the houses and discuss this with the commander of the base as these homes will be specifically only for the military and our veterans that are out and don’t have much to live on, but would be able to live in a beautiful little home and have a quality way of living. I’m curious on what you all think of that or possibly have suggestions.
Sincerely,

Great news Jay – thanks for all your effort and example so far – it makes it so much easier for those of us who have come into this arena later. Wishing you smooth and delightful progress with this project and I’m looking forward to reading your updates.

Cheryl:

Thanks for the update. I am very interested and would like to add my name to the list of many others who are interested in purchasing a tiny home or two in your tiny home village. As soon as the plan is finalized, I would love to place a deposit to hold a spot. Please keep me updated.

Much needed progress! I have a 180sqft tiny house and nowhere to put it! Would love to install it there or even sell it to someone who would like to live in it.

I am still very much interested in moving to the Napoleon Complex. I would be bringing my 84 yr. old mother to live there as well. Depending on costs, we may buy her a home of her own, next to mine, or I may have her live with me. Do you know an estimated cost of the homes with land? Either two 250-300 sq. foot homes or one 400/400+ sq. foot home.

I am so excited about this project! Do you have to buy a tiny house already there or can you bring your own in and rent a lot? When will it open? I’m so curious to learn more!

Since everyone else seems to be doing it, I thought I would throw my name in the hat for a pre-order. I’ve been following the progress, or at least checking it to see if there was any, for some time now. I’m glad it’s finally closer to breaking ground and I am very eager to find out how to secure home ownership.

As a newly convert to tiny homes, your plans are very exciting. As a senior, I love the idea of retaining my own home combined with supportive community. A dream come true. What is the current status?

I thought I had signed up for updates on this project? To my surprise, I happened upon this update while browsing your site. I’ll once again ask to please be kept up to date on the plans for this complex. I live in Healdsburg and plan to downsize soon. Hope all is well with you and your family.

I bought plans for tiny house several years ago in hipes of building a place in Sonoma County for my daughter who is a student at Sonoma State. Would love to have her be a apart of this village.
