You may or may not have already heard that Focus Homes is building a tiny house in Lakeland Florida and construction will soon commence. Hurray! The tiny house will be built close to downtown and Hwy 98. This is not the first customer of ours that has wanted to get their tiny house dream constructed, but it is the first tiny house to get approved by the City of Lakeland for one of our clients . (Image shown is not the actual building location but an example of the types of backyards that may be suitable for a tiny house in Lakeland.)
What is the ideal Lakeland tiny house location?
There are many factors that come into play when planning and budgeting to custom build a tiny house. Location is extremely important, and can make or break the entire project. You might not be surprised to find out that the ideal Lakeland location to build your tiny house is in the back yard of an existing home - surprise (or not)!
Yep, when you construct a solid block tiny house in Lakeland the most affordable place to build is in the back yard of an existing home and the tiny house is considered to be an ADU, accessory dwelling unit, or auxiliary dwelling unit. When this designation occurs, you can save thousands of dollars when designing and building your tiny house. We will speak about the savings in more detail in a future blog.
What type of tiny house projects seem to be working?
As of now, the clients that Focus Homes is currently working with in the design and approval process of a tiny house project are families. One family has a mature daughter living in the main house up front with the retired parents living in the tiny house out back. Another family has the parents living in the main house up front with a married child and grandchild living in the tiny house out back.
