Little House on the Trailer’s Home Care Cottages are an affordable way to make room for a family member in an accessory dwelling on a property that already has a primary residence. A special use permit in Sonoma County can save hundreds of thousands of dollars compared to the cost of a site built second unit. A senior living in a large house they no longer need can down size on their own property and have the main house occupied by someone who can assist them, saving thousands of dollars per month compared to assisted living.

Home Care Cottages




Home Care Cottages are Park Model Recreational Trailers. They enjoy a special use permit in Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino Counties for housing people needing Home Care or those providing Home Care. They are personal property and may be occupied in parks and outdoor hospitality locations suh as KOA.  Limited by code to 400 square feet, they offer a compact, moveable home – a good solution for smaller sites in a mobile home park. They are often used as vacation homes in recreational zones or as seasonal homes in parks. PLANS
