Home-builder Jim Chapman Jr. is looking to transform a 7.69 acre parcel in Historic Downtown East Point into a 40-house community of 250 to 700-square-foot homes.

The development, Eco Cottages at East Point, would be a self-sustaining community of tiny-houses complete with amenities like a community garden, walking and bike paths, fire pit, picnic space, and a yoga area.

“The Eco Cottages at East Point is a new type of community that is a culmination of sustainable structures, new urbanism and micro agrihood,” according to the development’s website.

“We are redefining the idea of a neighborhood by encouraging relationships between neighbors physically and socially through the design of the neighborhood layout and the engagement through community activities.”

The Eco Cottages at East Point would be the first “tiny home community in metro-Atlanta.”

“The careful orientation of structures and creative use of porches and gardens creates privacy while maintaining closeness with neighbors, with a varied landscape including preserved century old hardwoods to planned edible landscaping ranging from vertical gardens, potted herbs, a community garden, we aim to incorporate sustainability throughout.”

Champan Jr. will work alongside Kim Bucciero of Tiny South Development with advisement from Will Johnston of Tiny House Atlanta. Mary Bairstow is the project’s realtor.

Hi,

I am a resident of Egan Park, neighboring community to this new design community, and am interested in learning more about this development. I am submitting my information for this purpose in hopes of possibly referring new individuals to this community as I learn more about the overall initiative of this new community.

Absolutely, finally some innovative development that is in line with helping our planet survive. I am so sick of these clear-cut developers who just took down 300+ trees in my neighborhood to put up these gargantuan energy vampires for $600,000+…I have read recently of several cities who have built “tiny house villages” for the homeless.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE contact me for this tiny house project in East Point, GA. I have never owned a home and I was just speaking with a co-worker yesterday regarding tiny homes for someone like me. I am definitely interested and would like to know the cost of such home. People who are getting older or people who live on a budget or people who are single or people with no kids are looking for the perfect space as such. You have answered my prayers and I look forward to the information on this project.

Please send me more info such as floorplans, pricing & whether or not the homes will have attached covered parking. I grew up in EP & would love to “come home”. Also would like to have a small private yard. Right now I live in the Newnan area & there is a lack of small affordable homes unless you buy one that’s 50 years old & needs a ton of work. Thanx !!!

Please send floor plans, pricing and information regarding utilities. What type of parking will be offered with a home purchase? Would it be a deeded property or a land lease arrangement?

Its time for something like this. I would be interested in this community as long as there are strict rules governing how it is kept up; aesthetics, home design, paint colors, landscaping, etc. A substantial maintenance fee is necessary to maintain the roads and common areas. Many people want to downsize and live a minimalist lifestyle, which saves money, resources, and is better for the planet. I would want to know that this community is as interested in maintaining a standard of quality that is reflected in its upkeep and presentability over the years as they are in downsizing and… Read more »

May peace and blessings be upon all whom are seeking a brighter tomorrow. I have dreamed of owning a tiny house for years. I really need one because I pay for college out of pocket, no financial help. Therefore I really need a place to live that would be mine someday, and at the same time, would not have a large monthly payment for 10, 20, 30 years. A tiny house is something that you could always pass along to your children or nieces and nephews, so they can save money while they are paying for college as well. A… Read more »

I’m a novelist, working on a book in which my heroine has a tiny house. She lives in a community in Sugar Hill (fictional community). I was curious about the layout of the community, how big the lots were, etc. This has been helpful. Thanks! I plan to come view the community as soon as I can.

Like another person leaving a comment, I too have never had my own home; something all on one level, 700 square feet in a cottage, arts&craft bungalow style sounds like a dream. I am an ecologist, whole systems designer and practicing naturopath aware of the potential for building period-featured kit homes for as little as 28K but finding suitable places to build them is another matter. Your conscious desire to re-create community where its been lost is commendable. How much existing ecology can be saved in the process? See if you can also incorporate some new building materials made from… Read more »

Tiny homes- live minimally and grow my own food… as a graduate from Farm School in NYC… I hope it will be eco-friendly place… A life that will be a model to other developers to bring sustainability full circle… I’m all in…. And would love to do workshops for growing organic food vertically and horizontally… Kudos to you!! Looking forward to living there and being part of an amazing green community…. Peace!
