Tony’s assistant gave us a tour of that property while he was still alive, and what was fascinating was how much effort Tony was putting into trying to perfect the “sense of community” and common areas. His vision was that he wanted all the residents to spend all their time together in a communal area and only go back to their trailers to sleep. The mobile home park was populated with a mixture of tiny homes and Airstreams and even included a communal pet llama.
