Frequently Asked Questions

 

As Southern California’s first tiny house village, we get a lot of questions! That’s great! We appreciate your curiosity!

While we love connecting with you 1 on 1, we have found this handy FAQ section saves you and us considerable time. Please read through these questions first to see if your questions are answered here.

If there is something we have not answered, please contact us.

 

How do I book a tiny house for a one-night stay or more?

While we’re working to build our own reservation system, you can find our Tinies and availability on AirBNB! This goes for both Mt. Laguna and Julian (Banner Ranch) locations. See you soon!

 

Are all your houses available for short-term and long-term?

Yes. The only time a house will not be available for short-term is because it’s currently being rented for long-term.

 

I’m interested in long-term renting. How do I schedule a showing?

After you have gone through the “Rent our Tiny Houses” page and determined which house(s) you would like to see (more photos coming soon), please email us through the contact form and let us know how soon you are looking to move in!

 

How do you get water into the houses? How does the septic system work?

Each space has water spigot and septic hookup. Septic is where there is underground waste storage tanks where the waste settles and the liquid is dispersed through leech fields.

 

Are you off grid? How do you get power?

We are tied to San Diego Gas & Electric. If you are a long-term renter with us, you will be billed separately for your power usage.

 

Do you build these houses yourself?

We have had some built and have bought others outright. We are currently working to build a referral page, with links to top builders!

 

What zoning or permits do you need to make a tiny house village? I know a lot of people have tried to do this.

We are zoned as an RV Park, and our tiny houses on wheels (THOW’s) fall under the same jurisdiction.

 

What do you do for insulation?

We use R13 and R30 fiberglass batts.

 

What resources can you provide about legalizing tiny houses and where else to park them besides at Tiny House Block?
