Construction Guidelines

We believe in constructing tiny houses in a way that makes them suitable and safe for full time dwelling. We’ve created guidelines for tiny houses on wheels and are considering developing more formal standards through the ANSI process.

Tiny houses on foundations should be built according to local codes. We support modification of the International Residential Code to accommodate tiny houses.


We support increasing awareness of existing zoning regulations and working with local planning and zoning groups to enable changes to accommodate tiny houses.
