Tiny house enthusiasts in the central San Joaquin Valley will soon get a chance to explore at least two pint-sized homes at the tiny house community in Lemon Cove.
Lemon Cove Village, the renovated KOA campground on Highway 198 in Tulare County, will have an open house from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 21.
Owner Dirk Dole will have his first tiny house on site for sale — and open for tours.
Dole is working with an out-of-town builder, who makes tiny houses between 100 square feet and 400 square feet in size, to sell the homes. The houses can then be placed in one of the community’s 55 sites.
The homes are certified and inspected during the build process, which allows buyers to finance it if needed, Dole said. The house on site is around $32,000.
The family building team at California Tiny House in Fresno is also expected to attend the open house with its 225-square-foot tiny home.
The community’s first resident is expected to arrive in mid February, before the open house, Dole said.
Renovations on the campground are almost complete. The laundry room and community room upgrades are done. The road and site grading is done and gravel was laid down throughout the site, Dole said. The dog park is also nearly finished.
