On two of our residents' blogs, each post big reflections about their new tiny neighbor's arrival:
Orlando Lakefront is proud to say that we have added a fifth tiny house on wheels to our tiny house community! We are excited that our new tiny houser chose to live and finish her THOW in the park.

Author: James moved from Colorado in February '15 just to park his tiny house "The Company Store" at Orlando Lakefront. Reminiscent of the 1880's miner cabins dotting the Rocky Mountains, James brought a piece of Colorado with him. He enjoys kayaking on the lake and relaxing in his TH.
