Our Story

Our company founders, The Resource Group, have been in land development and homebuilding for over 20 years. In 2015 they realized there was a significant gap in options for affordable, low maintenance homes for people wanting an amenity-rich community lifestyle. They went to work to conceptualize and develop a new kind of housing choice, partly fueled by the tiny home movement and demand for smaller, more efficient living without sacrificing home features and an active lifestyle. With these ingredients and inspiration, Simple Life was born.

Right-Sized Housing

They started by developing 2,500 square foot home sites for small cottage homes of 399-500 square feet. They partnered with facility-focused home builders of high-quality homes with smaller footprints. Modern factory-built housing provided craftsman-quality construction and beautiful finishes, adhered to national building codes, and avoided costly weather delays, material waste, and contractor fees.

They designed and developed luxury shared community amenities including classic and rustic swimming pools, fitness spaces and yoga studios, clubhouses, sports courts, dog parks, walking trails, green spaces, community gardens, and water features to create the perfect balance of private and shared space.

Simply put, today Simple Life uses lower impact, less costly development to build, own, operate and expand small cottage communities and provide low maintenance amenity-rich living at a lower overall cost.
