California Needs an Affordable Tiny House Company
With its beautiful beaches and mountains and so many things to see and do, California has always been a desirable place to live. Combine that with very strict building codes and you start to understand why housing is so expensive in many parts of California. It also explains why tiny houses are so popular. Cheeky Monkey is a tiny home company that serves all of California to help ease the housing cost pressure.
The price of California housing is putting pressure on city governments to look at alternative ways to help make affordable housing available. According to Zillow, the median home value in California as of 2019 is $548,600. In places such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego, it can be twice that much. Tiny houses on wheels are a perfect solution. The average cost of a Tiny House is $73,000.
Cheeky Monkey Tiny Houses is very active in California and offers some of the most affordable tiny houses on the market. In fact, our entry-level home pricing starts in the $40Ks. That is substantially less than many builders.
Adoption of Tiny Home Ordinances
California is a very progressive state and is leading the way in adopting ordinances for tiny houses. Several California Cities have or are in the process of adopting code to allow people to park and live permanently in RV-certified, code-compliant tiny houses.
San Luis Obispo and Fresno Are Legal
San Luis Obispo recently passed an ordinance to allow people to live full time in certified tiny houses on wheels. For more information on that ordinance, please visit: https://www.slocity.org/how-do-i/apply-for/tiny-home-on-wheels
Fresno California was the first major city in California to pass a tiny house ordinance and has had it for a few years. You can see more information on the Fresno tiny house ordinance here: https://www.fresno.gov/darm/wp-content/uploads/sites/10/2018/01/Tiny-Homes-submittal-requirements.pdf
Los Angeles is Almost There
Los Angeles is working hard to pass a tiny house ordinance of their own. It is expected that it will pass in 2019. You can see the draft ordinance here: http://planning.lacity.org/ordinances/docs/ADU/Ordinance.pdf
From Santa Barbara to San Diego, Other Cities Are Working on It
Many other cities in California know that they have a housing shortage and are actively working on ways to make housing affordable. Tiny houses can be one piece of that puzzle. If you would like to explore the idea of going tiny for yourself, please contact us to learn more.
