CURBED L.A.‘s Bianca Barragan reports that developers Ravinia Communities and Goetz Ventures will build 100 new “micro homes” at Palm Canyon MobileClub, a mobile home park that dates to the 1940s.
According to the Desert Sun, though they houses are marketed as “micro,” they don’t have much in common with the dramatically small residences featured on HGTV shows devoted to the tiny house trend.The homes will start at 600 square feet for a one-bedroom model. All the houses come with 9-foot-tall ceilings, clerestory windows, and their own little yards, plus the option for a hot tub or furnishings.
The micro homes we believe are more livable than many of the tiny homes typically featured on TV,” Kaplan tells the Sun. The homes, built locally in Corona, “are designed much craftier than the traditional mobile home, for maximum space” and fit in nicely with the midcentury modern aesthetic that many expect to find in Palm Springs, according to the Sun. Despite the big list of amenities the houses offer, their prices are still fairly affordable. The houses start at $115,000, with a $650 monthly rental fee for the house’s site in the park. There are three available now, says the Sun.
