The residents already had their tiny homes before deciding to live together in their own tiny neighborhood. They worked hard digging trenches for electricity cables so that power can be pumped into the community from the grid, with each house having a 30 amp box outside. Simply Home consists of six people ranging from 28 to 50 years, sharing one-third of an acre of land and the 1,450-square-foot 'big house' that came along with it.
One member of the community, Tony Diethelm, said finding the space was pure good luck. "We made the right offer at the right time with the right people, and it worked," he says. But Tony didn't wait around for it to happen, either. He turned his dream to own a plot of land into positive action.
