05/04/2016 – The state is about to pass a law for tiny houses as ADU’s that would allow a tiny house on wheels in the backyard of a family member. The bill has passed to house and it has been forwarded to the Senate which is expected to pass it, then onward for the Governor to sign into law. It is expected to be effective July 1, 2016.
The units must also be ANSI 119.2 compliant and on trailers towable with at least a 1 ton truck.
The bill provides an initial conditional use permit term of six months, with an option for renewal: http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/hrd/bs/89/HF2497.pdf
