Tiny Houses Communities In Vermont

Living in a tiny house community gives you access to shared resources and helps to keep your cost of living and financial burdens much lower. It also helps you meet new people in the tiny community and form genuine bonds.

If this sounds appealing to you, there are several communities in Vermont worth looking into. If you know of a tiny house community in Vermont we’ve forgotten, let us know in the comments below.

Headwaters Garden & Learning Center

Headwaters Garden & Learning Center is an intentional living community in Cabot, Vermont. The ecovillage was founded with the idea of providing community members with a nurturing environment and the public with educational, recreational, and healing programs to teach sustainable livelihoods.

The community consists of eight independent dwellings including tiny houses, single-family homes, a yurt, tee-pees, domes, a treehouse, tents, and additional lots to build on. Members share in the community workload by cultivating the land, helping with building projects, providing childcare, growing food, and much more.

Joining is a few-step process — after some time spent attending events at the community, visitors can submit an application that will be considered by the group. To build your own home at Headwaters, you would buy a home site and agree to pay monthly condo fees for shared facilities. Currently, the remaining home site is for sale for $50,000, whereas the average building lot in the area is over $60,000.

Headwaters also provides educational services to the public. Members offer wellness, arts, and lifestyle courses and weekend retreats for those who want to try new things like vegan eating, learning about the climate crisis, or taking up guitar lessons.

Ten Stones Community

Ten Stones is a multi-generational, sustainable co-housing community in Charlotte, Vermont. It was created by 17 humble families who wanted to live as a community. Ten Stones sits on 87.4 acres of woodland, meadow, and preserved agricultural land with 16 clustered, privately owned, half-acre home sites with small dwellings.

Residents live in a close-knit neighborhood that seeks a blend of privacy and community. There is no one dogma other than a desire to live communally, ecologically, and economically. Members tend to be deeply connected to the land and like to live pastorally in the heart of Champlain Valley. Decisions are made via a community consensus and all members are involved in that process.

The families of Ten Stones care for jointly owned land and infrastructure, share resources with one another, work to maintain and improve the community, celebrate important life events, and care for one another deeply.

Tiny Living Social Groups Vermont

Tiny House Fest Vermont

Tiny House Fest Vermont began in 2016 when three friends decided to launch an annual tiny house festival in downtown Brattleboro. At the time, one of the founders was in the process of designing and building a tiny house on wheels, another was renovating homes, and another was completing an energy retrofit. All were considering many questions about the most affordable and ecofriendly housing.

As they considered the economy, flexibility, and proximity of tiny houses, they decided to do something about this community need. And thus, Tiny House Fest Vermont was born!

The festival invites anyone in the city to comes out, eat good food, tour tiny houses on wheels, and join the conversation around why the tiny house movement matters.
