Green Bridge Farm - Latest Blog Comments en-us Lot Price - Michael Maddox <p>Linda, I am currently trying get approval from the building department where I live , to allow people to live here in Tiny Houses. I have one here now but just in my rental area. i submitted all of my paperwork earlier this week. I will know by mid August whether I will be granted a variance to the minimum sq. ft.requirement. Most zoning/ building departments have minimum square foot requirements for permanent primary dwellings and tiny houses don't meet the minimum requirement. </p> Sat, 17 Jun 2017 07:08:51 -0400 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4357053 Lot Price - Linda cox <p>I retired and looking for a tiny house community as my full time residence.

I'm two years away from retiring full time and have spent much loved time in the Savannah area. Your village looks very appealing. What I'm considering is living in an RV, doing the work travel thing to different parts of the country, but would need a home to come 'home' to. Anyway, please keep posting. What you are offering is so appealing. I just have to determine whether I can do the country thing having lived in cities most of my adult life! It's the sense of community that is most appealing. Thanks Michael. I'll keep checking back to see what's going on.</p> Sun, 28 May 2017 14:57:54 -0400 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4352082 Lot Price - Michael Maddox <p>Yes we do Shea but we are all booked up now.

Give me a call at 912-667-1118 when you want to come out. We are about a half hours drive from Savannah.</p> Sun, 05 Feb 2017 06:37:27 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4323426 Lot Price - Beth <p>Great- thank you for the info. I'm 51, looking to downsize from a small 1344 Sq ft. only because of financial reasons. Looking for inexpensive solution to finish life, since I've not been able to make the bucu bucks my contemporaries have. THOW looked like a cheaper way, though I may not be too mobile. But I like the idea of being able to take my home with me if in 10-15 years I need to move closer to caretakers. I will look at Katrina house and I will call you before I head out. Thanks </p> Fri, 03 Feb 2017 06:39:53 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4323092 Lot Price - Michael Maddox <p>I like the idea of alternative dwellings. I'm actually registered and recorded as an experimental subdivision . I think THOWs make sense if you don't want to buy land and settle down in any particular place. I see them as tentative and provisional. Maybe transitory is what I'm getting at? If you aren't sure of where you want to live but want a place of your own. If you own land and like living there they by all means set down roots and build on the ground. I think the people here see tiny house living as a step in the right direction but not the ultimate goal. Instead of putting two tiny houses together what not build one bigger cottage? Anytime you want to visit just let me know. I'm almost always here. BTW I would love to see someone build a Katrina cottage here. Just go to Lowes website and type in Katrina and you will see their plans. I also have small house plans here on this website.</p> Fri, 03 Feb 2017 05:57:07 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4323080 Lot Price - Beth <p>Thank you Michael, for that explanation. The web site that sent me to you should update their info then. It was called </p> <p>And I would actually prefer more space, and trying to design my tiny home expanded into two homes on wheels, side by side, with one being master. Dig trot between them both. Mainly cause I've been watching you tube videos and getting ideas. But if I took that same footprint of what I've designed, it would be more like 500-600 sq. ft, which is preferable. I've only been thinking differently cause of finances and our weird country feeling tenuous. Thinking about not only organic farming but happy laying hens and goats for making goat cheese. Somethings changing inside of me with this new year and new country.</p> <p>Anyway, I would like to visit wirh a few questions. Maybe I should think about stick build. Just lot price bows my budget a bit. Still pondering. Are you going to the tiny house festival in Eatonton Ga March 3-5, 2017? Let me know when you are free to meet and show me around. Only when it's convenient for you since I'm just at the start of research, and don't know how serious I am yet. So may ducks to get in a row first BeFor I can make a move. Thanks, Beth</p> Thu, 02 Feb 2017 20:53:42 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4322956 Lot Price - Michael Maddox <p>I need to proofread my posts. I meant &quot; lot&quot; not &quot; log&quot;. Tiny Houses don't meet the criteria for permanent housing. They are too small. They are registered as Recreational vehicles. I believe Tiny houses on wheels( THOWs) are a good starting part to live in in an RV park or rental space like I have here but I wouldn't want to be confined to 200 sq. ft. Forever. I have two Colorado Yurts out here that are 24 feet wide that are about 450 sq. ft. If you have land why not build on a foundation? Here in Effingham you can legally live in a house as small as 520 sq. ft. In Chatham it's 1000 sq. ft. A 500 o 600 sq. is still very tiny by housing standards and you could live here or elsewhere in Effingham legally for as long as you like. If you just like the idea of living in a really confining space you could buy a lot and ask for a variance from the county to get your certificate of occupancy from a Effingham county. I have been in dialogue with the county to get a blanket variance for the whole project but thy want me to do it individually. </p> Thu, 02 Feb 2017 06:17:36 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4322809 Lot Price - Beth <p>I was under the impression that this was already to go for tiny house living Untill I read this last bit on prev. Post.</p> <p> &quot;Like anywhere you would have to get a variance( permission) to live permanently on a log in your tiny house. I could help you appeal the ordinance against permanent living in an RV/ Tiny House.&quot;</p> <p>So does this mean it's not approved for tiny homes after all and each person has to ask special permission to do it?</p> <p>Thanks, Beth in Savannah, also interested in Beauford info!</p> Wed, 01 Feb 2017 22:08:29 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4322668 Lot Price - Michael Maddox <p>I'm sorry but I just rented out my last RV hookup. There is a new 30 acre tiny house community being built near here in Beaufort South Carolina. I just found out about it yesterday. When I find out about it I will share that info here. </p> Sat, 28 Jan 2017 05:16:13 -0500 /blog/entry/4020227/lot-price#comment4321301 Pick and Pay - Michael Maddox <p>Kimberly do you live in the area?

Doyou have any acreage where you have several tiny homes that could be rent to own . we would sign a long term agreement.
