There’s been a lot of news lately about “tiny house” living. In fact one rather industrious teenager built his own tiny 130 square foot home on wheels that he plans to take with him to college, and wherever he moves onto from there. Normally, that would be called a trailer. It will be interesting to find out how well that goes over with his future wife, but I digress. In the middle of all the tiny house hoopla are the questions that arise when considering where tiny house living is actually allowed, yes allowed. Tiny houses are apparently difficult to zone, finance, and insure, not to mention sell when you feel the need to expand. If you do find yourself obsessed with living on the “small side” just remember to check into a few things before you sell all your excess possessions in order to move into your tiny house. First, check local zoning laws, if your tiny house is on a trailer and less than 12 feet wide, it could be considered an RV. Next, some towns set residential parameters for home building. Then don’t forget electrical and sewage connections, and permits. If after all this, you still dream of being a tiny home owner, you might want to practice living in your bedroom closet for a while just to be on the safe side.
