Over the next few months, a half dozen more tiny houses will move onto the property which can accommodate 13 homes. The residences range from 200 to 400 square feet and each will occupy a plot of approximately 800 to 900 square feet, leaving room for a small garden and lawn. Two home sites are still available.
In addition to the initial cost of their home, each homeowner pays rent for their plot of land starting at around $500 per month that includes access to a washeteria, an eventual clubhouse, outdoor communal shaded areas and community garden. Water, sewer and trash pickup are included but each homeowner pays for their own electric service.
The Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village is located at 206 Gotcher Ave., near the historic downtown area of Lake Dallas. Nearby restaurants, shopping, schools and parks offer convenience to the new homeowners while still maintaining the small-town atmosphere of this unique municipality on the shores of Lake Lewisville.
