A Dream of a Tiny Home Village:
Proposals for Low-Cost Housing Options for Seniors in Chico
Simplicity Village was our proposal for a tiny-homes village for unhoused seniors. Unfortunately we had to drop the proposal for the village at Notre Dame Ave due to a lawsuit from another member of the community, but we remain deeply committed to a tiny homes village or some other low-cost alternative housing model at another location
We are looking for an acre or more of land in or near Chico to put a tiny homes village on. If you have some property you can donate, lease, or sell, please contact CHAT Executive Director Leslie Johnson: 530-518-9992.
Some options we're working on:
Tiny houses with a community building
Conestoga huts: quick to build and lightweight!
Cobb houses: materials are cheap and readily available, houses are well insulated
Many other possibilities! Contact us if you have some ideas!
