So a while back I had posted about some land that I was planning on living on in my tiny house. I am sad to report that spot isn’t going to work out well because the owners have since decided to sell the property.
So this meant I have to finish up building and then move on, which left me in a tough spot. I had quite a few sleepless nights over the whole thing while I searched frantically for land to get my house on. I pursued some properties to purchase, but they didn’t work out for various reasons. I looked for farm land to rent, but people aren’t keen on this. I tried for trailer parks to setup up shop in, but they wouldn’t let me in even if I got designated as a park model, RV or mobile home. My search lead me father and farther out of the city to the point where I was considering the next state over!
This is the story of tiny houses that isn’t told. It’s not a glamorous one, it frustrating, its stressful and it will keep you up at night.
The fact is that getting tiny houses to work in a big city like Charlotte is tough, while I could easily move to the country, I’d leave behind friends, family and good paying jobs. So I decided to tough it out here in Charlotte for many reasons. Luckily I have found some land to live on, but now I need to get all the utilities setup without raising any eyebrows.
On my to do list is the following
- Cable internet
- Trash service
So in the next few weeks I am going to be chronicling my journey in getting these things setup. So stay tuned!
So now some photos of the property that my house will be on, it is quite big for being in the city and I can’t wait for the spring because there isn’t much green after the winter!
