Live, Love, and Laugh In HOA-Free Housing

guest blog by Nila Ridings

Many people have been made homeless after HOA foreclosures. A degree in one hand, school loan in another, and living in a nightmare HOA with their parents has yet another age group seeking housing with no debt and no CC&R’s. Others find it’s time to downsize, keep only what’s necessary, and find a way to live without an HOA. Still others want to live in cooler summer and warmer winter climates…taking their house-on-wheels along with them.
Housing is achievable for all of the above.

The Tiny House Movement is rapidly growing. The designs have gotten very creative. For some, the economic factors are thought-provoking for working less and living more. The obvious reduction in the carbon footprint tiny houses is also appealing.

Needless to say you can’t park one of these in the backyard of your HOA-restricted Granny’s house. But there are current efforts to start developing Tiny House Communities. Hopefully, they’ll keep the HOA concept out of their plans!

How about it, would you live in a custom-built Tiny House?

    What a Great concept!Just imagine the time you would save on housework, not to mention this would keep you from buying all that unnecessary brick a brack. No HOA dues, probably no property tax and very low insurance rates. Great story Nila, thanks for sharing.
