Florida Tiny Homes
Downsizing or retiring in a tiny house in Florida has become more and more popular in recent years. Florida is frequently cited as one of the very best states in the U.S. for tiny home living, based on the number of tiny home-specific communities, zoning/permitting opportunities, RV parks accepting tiny homes, and more factors. Add in Florida’s great weather, beautiful beaches, tax breaks for seniors, and buzzing social scene on top of all this and it’s easy to understand why the Florida tiny living movement is booming.

In the last few years, more and more municipalities around Florida have reformed their housing laws and passed ordinances to make permanent tiny home dwelling more accessible. For example, Rockledge City Council adopted some of the most progressive tiny housing zoning ordinances in the country, legalizing both tiny houses on wheels and tiny houses with a foundation. Ever since, the tiny home movement in Florida has taken off and more tiny-friendly communities have started to form in areas such as Longwood, Osceola County, Marion Country, and more.
In addition to more and more tiny-friendly cities in Florida, there are great tiny-specific communities, as well as many RV parks that welcome tiny home dwellers. Many of these communities and RV parks are located in resort-like lakefront or beachfront settings. Some offer great amenities like pools, hot tubs, community centers… even their own bars and nightclubs! For more options, read our guide to “Where to Put a Tiny House (Legally).”
Living in a tiny home in Florida is a great option for many people. Not only does it bring great financial benefits, such as lower monthly costs and the opportunity to live mortgage-free, but also many great lifestyle benefits. To name a few, switching to a smaller and more simple living arrangement can help reduce stress, encourage more time spent outdoors, and bring you closer to your loved ones.

Professionally crafted tiny homes often fall within a price range of $45,000 to $100,000, though you can certainly pay more for a more luxurious tiny home. Prices vary based on a variety of factors, such as the materials used, the quality of the craftsmanship, and whether the home is custom, prefab, or pre-owned. For comparison purposes, the median price of a regular-sized home in Florida was $229,000 in 2019, so you can save quite a bit by going tiny!

Customizing a tiny home from the ground up is one of the best ways to ensure your new home matches up with your unique style, needs, and way of life. It can also help you take advantage of all that Florida has to offer. For example, depending on your priorities, you can choose exactly where you want your windows placed to maximize beach views from your tiny home, or create a hybrid kitchen and living area that’s perfectly suited for entertaining and hosting parties. Many tiny homes in Florida also focus on creating great outdoor spaces to maximize otherwise limited square footage.
If designing a custom tiny home from the ground up is out of reach, we also have many incredible pre-built and pre-owned tiny homes for sale, including our Signature Series line of prefab tiny homes. These homes are generally more affordable than custom homes, but they’re a culmination of years of design and construction experience, so they don’t compromise on craftsmanship, quality, or aesthetics.
