UPDATE: Just spoke with Mr Brock Taylor - Riverside's Director of Planning & Zoning. Seems he is on our side as to Tiny Houses. He admitted that if he wasn't married, he would be living "tiny"; if he didn't have 3 children, if he didn't have 2 dogs and a cat and 3 vehicles - other than that.... He has purchased a tract of vacant land with small houses in mind. The wooded property is over an acre WITH an open well (hhmmm) AND an older, overgrown pond (double HHmmm).
For those who want to check it out before the Meetup here's the address:
2313 Bonnieview Ave, Riverside
Once a lavish estate, it sits ready for a cleanup and new life. Rough guess as to price: about $30,000. We have already figure that an acre could easily hold 20 small houses maybe a few more (under 400 sq ft). We can each have a buildable lot for a little over $1,000. (You didn't think it would be free??? But then again, you would own a clear fee simple deed that is marketable which banks kinda like. Speaking of banks, how's that savings account working out for you?)
See the little name Wickers right in the lower center? That is the access into #16. The pond is to the east. Very promising for those who are ready to build this year.
