MT. LAGUNA, Calif. (KGTV) - A new destination outside San Diego's City limits is challenging people to unglue from technology and live with less.

It's called Tiny House Block and is currently made up of 10 tiny homes nestled in Mt. Laguna.

"The vision of Tiny House Block is to create a place where community converges, where we celebrate unity through diversity, where we all get to experience our shared humanity," said Jon Block, who co-founded the village with his sister.

"Some wise people realized, enough of the madness already! And decided, not for financial reasons, but for happiness, peace of mind, pure lifestyle choice, decided to go smaller."

Each of the tiny houses has a theme, including Farmhouse, Stargazer, and Sedona Spirit; they range from 170 sq/ft to 500 sq/ft.

A customer favorite is Greenhouse, a tiny house dedicated to cannabis, conversation, and community.

"We are creating a resort village here, we want people to have a certain vibration, and they're here to really get away, and they want to connect with other people on a similar type of wavelength," said Block.

Block hopes to have 25 homes in the village by next year and invites visitors to stay for a few nights or long term.

You can book your tiny house getaway on Airbnb.
