Bunkies, Tiny Homes, and Cabins

 

HOW OUR RENEWABLE LAND RENTAL SYSTEM WORKS:

At Hidden Hollow, we have devised a renewable land rental system, so that people renting our land can either build a new bunkie, tiny home, cabin, cottage, or roll in with a pre-built existing home, pick a spot, and park.  

People with pre-existing homes on wheels can complete their renewable land rental agreement and full payment at any time.  Then is is a matter of picking your spot and moving in.

All initial renewable rental agreements are for two years. Each year, the full yearly payment is due on or prior to May 15th. When it comes time to renew a lease, Leasees can choose the length of their next lease agreement (1, 2, or 5 years), based on what is happening in their lives.

This gives people time to finish their buildings, adjust to off-grid living during all four seasons, get to know other home owners, and to discover and explore this beautiful region.

By offering this renewable land rental system, we can ensure people that we will be here for years to come.

We understand that there may come a point in time when people would like to own their own land, to pay property taxes, and to move their home to their own land.  This is one of the reasons that all homes at Hidden Hollow are designed to be termporary structures, which can be loaded on a tilt and load trailer and moved to new locations.  After all, you bought, built, and paid for your home....it is your home!

Note:  When that time comes, we have a company you can contact that will do this for you at a reasonable price. When you move you are responsible to move all your personal property off the rented land and out of Hidden Hollow.  We do not provide storage.




BUILDING REQUIREMENTS:  

Hidden Hollow is located in an unorganized district; therefore, building permits and inspections are not necessary, but you must understand that even though permits are not required, your home must be built to code, as an inspector may show up one day and require an inspection.  

Therefore, you cannot live in a tent, a yurt, or any other alternate shanty-type structure - our temperatures here often reach -40C during winter months with snowfall.

Although you may build your own home, it must be built to code.  Information about building codes is available at the office. Your goal the first summer is to get your building up, insulated, and your off-grid systems in place.  All interior finishing can be done during the winter months in the warmth of your home.

If you dont have the experience to build your own home, don't panic.  We have invited a national builder to attend the open house so you can sit down and discuss getting the exterior shell built for you, to code, with your choice of finishes, and offering reasonable prices.  

The company offers free delivery and setup, and offers a rent to own option.  Contact Information for the builder will be provided at the open house, or can be picked up at the office anytime.

All structures on wheels require a gravel pad under them.

Bunkies/tiny homes/cabins/cottages and other structures require a level gravel pad that cememt blocks can be place on to set your bulding down upon.

All buildings that sit on blocks must be skirted to keep the winter winds out and keep your floors warmer. It's probably a good idea to insulate under your floors as well.


Note: The people who lrent our lots are responsible for upkeeping their lot, which shall look neat and tidy at all times.


That being said, you are able to plant shrubs, flowering bushes, and flowerbeds - no veggie/fruit gardens, as we have a community garden for that.



WHAT COMES WITH MY LAND:

The office address is your mailing address, especially helpful "Driver's License and Health Cards".  Mail is collected each day and sorted into mailboxes at the office.  A street address is also provided so that you direct your visitors to your home.


The main portion of your land is open to provide adequate solar charging power during sunny hours, especially in the winter.  



LOT SIZES AVAILABLE:

There are two lot sizes to choose from and depending on what size lot you choose will determine how big your home/yard will be and the cost of your leased land each year.

Standard Lot Size:  Approx. 30' x 60' - located around the office and various other locations throughout the camp.
Economic Lot Size:  Approx. 30' x 25' - located in VanHaven Park.
