Natural Awakenings Atlanta

GA’s First Tiny Homes Now for Sale

In June, Atlanta-based MicroLife Institute, a nonprofit organization working to create micro-communities, announced that pre-sale contracts are available for eight properties in The Cottages on Vaughan, a tiny house community in Clarkston, Georgia. The homes are either 250 square feet on an approximately 70-square-foot lot or 500 square feet on lots ranging from 1000 to 1600 square feet.

The project evolved out of MicroLife’s Tiny House Atlanta program, which is dedicated to building walkable, sustainable “micro-hood” communities while educating individuals, groups and cities about the positive impacts of micro living. The Atlanta-based program holds regular meetings and has one of the largest tiny house Meetup Groups in the nation.

“I am such a believer in our mission that I’ve bought a home and am moving into the community myself,” says MicroLife Institute founder and CEO, Will Johnston. “We’re thrilled that there’s so much interest. So many are realizing that their old life is no longer what they want, that it’s a time to re-evaluate values and lifestyle.”

The tiny-house movement is an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes. “Tiny” homes are typically less than 400 square feet in size. The movement values frugality, shared community, and an alternative to a consumer-driven lifestyle.

The MicroLife Institute is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that invites individuals, policymakers and professionals to rethink how interior space is utilized while building community and social conscience.
