LATCH Collective

Los Angeles Tiny co-built HOMES

LATCH Collective


What is LATCH Collective?

We are a cooperatively owned network of tiny house enthusiasts supporting each other in designing and building tiny, transportable homes. We organize opportunities for sharing and receiving skills, knowledge, experience, tools and support. We also advocate for increased housing options in Los Angeles, specifically for spaces that are affordable, sustainable, well-designed and safely built.


Why co-build Tiny Homes? 


Chances are, if you're building Tiny in LA, you don't have the space for a project of this size. The LATCH Collective build site is a  secured & sheltered space with storage for materials and tools. 


Creating a community of builders enables parallel building which provides unique benefits; a support system offering aid and encouragement from peers, knowledge sharing, problem solving, and face-to-face learning from the firsthand experience of others. Co-building offers support for those labor tasks that are all-too challenging for one person alone. Emotional support and encouragement from the other builders will also come in handy when you need inspiration to keep up with your goals. 


A co-building community has a stronger voice in Tiny Home advocacy. The group status will aid in persuading local leaders to institute legal living areas for tiny homes. You will also be a part of creating learning opportunities for others in the community interested in tiny homes and general building skills.


The Tiny Movement is so much more than shrinking square footage; it’s about inclusive communities, being aware of and attempting to limit our impact on the Earth's resources, and being intentional about our lives. There is nothing else quite like the Los Angeles Tiny Co-built Homes Collective… Be among the first in this city to take control of your living situation by cooperatively building a Tiny Home!
