Tiny House Parking Options in Florida

The Burg Tiny House - Tampa Bay Tiny HomesSome tiny house owners are looking for a nomadic, off-grid or remote experience while others are seeking a community of like minded individuals. For the time being permanent and long term parking for tiny homes is still a area that could improve drastically! While there are options for owning and parking on your own land, we will focus on established parks, campgrounds and communities. At Tampa Bay Tiny Homes we are excited to be working with tiny home community organizers, owners and service providers to ensure we see more communities like Circle Pond Tiny Home Community!

    I am trying to find a place to park my tiny home (preferably in Martin County). Has anyone heard of any RV parks that allow them in/near that area?

      Keri, are you looking for permanent placement or parking your tiny home for 6 months or less?

    Hello, my name is Nancy. I am 56 years old and currently living in a home with a pool that is over 1,200 sq ft. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. There are days when i am not able to handle the cleaning and maintance of a pool and cleaning my home. Fortunately, my son 26 years old lives with me. My mother is 76 years old and lost everything in the recent hurricane and is coming to live with me. I have been doing research and viewing Tiny homes. I feel that at this stage in my life and my moms that we would be better living in a Tiny home with a downstairs bedroom and with a loft bedroom with stairs instead of a ladder. I love the idea of having less for us to clean and also the opportunity to have a front and back yard where we can grow our own vegetables. I am retiring soon because of my disability. I plan to hopefully buy the Tiny house cash but my concern is what would the cost be for the land? Where can i place it? Is the new Tiny home community in Ruskin only for young adults? Can someone give me some information? I would greatly appreicate it. Thank you, Nancy

      Hi Nancy, If you intend to purchase land and permanently place a tiny home you are best suited building on foundation and will need to consider building codes the zoning of the property you choose to buy. We can give you more direction once you have a specific property in mind. Katie at http://www.mar-keyservices.com/author/katie-leavitt/ may be able to help you with securing a property. Regarding Circle Pond in Ruskin I believe it is open to everyone but you can can reach out to them directly for more information. http://circlepondtinycommunity.com/ If you own the home you live in now you may be able to place a tiny home on wheels (THOW) or build and accessory dwelling unit on that property. Otherwise you can rent space for your THOW at the locations listed in this post. Hope that helps!

    hi, where can i permanantly put a tiny house?

    • tampabaytinyhomes

      November 12, 2017 at 6:24 pm

      Elizabeth, you can park a tiny home on wheels at the locations listed in this post for up to 6 months typically. For permanently parking a tiny home you can check out Circle Pond Tiny Home Community in Ruskin or otherwise would need your own land zoned appropriately.

        What zoning type would it need to be? I am currently looking for land to build on but don’t know where to start.

        • tampabaytinyhomes

          November 29, 2017 at 4:25 pm

          Janice, If you are building on a trailer it would be considered an RV so you would need to contact your municipality to confirm the type of local zoning that may allow for long term living in a tiny house, you may need to put it on a foundation and remove axles in some cases. On foundation you are concerned more with minimum sq footage codes than zoning issues typically. Thanks!

    Hi! We recently won a 20′ THOW, from the Incredible Tiny Home builders in Newport, TN. We currently live in Naples, FL, and would like to stay either in Collier, Lee, or Charlotte Counties. I know this is “way south” of what you’ve published, but might you know of any places where we can park (and live) permanently, in these three counties? Any help will be greatly appreciated, actually, as we are new on this journey!

    • tampabaytinyhomes

      Congrats Ralph! Sounds like a great thing to win! I am not aware of an actual tiny house community in one of those counties but if you find one let us know we would love to add it to our list. Otherwise RV Parks, Mobile Parks, Campgrounds and the like will be your best bet for now outside of a rural piece of land with no zoning issues. Hope that helps.
