Re: Tiny Houses Petition

The link says in most places you can't build a house less than 1000 sq ft. From my figures, that's a 24' x 42' single story footprint. Unbelievable. I guess that's why retired couples came up here and built their 5000 sf dream homes. That dream might now be a nightmare.

Re: Tiny Houses Petition

I got dumped on because I posted this on Escapees forum. Many people never know they live in areas with high SF restrictions until they personally come up against it. I do not think this petition will do anything except raise awareness of the situation. This is a problem on the local levels, Hopefully, politicians will become aware of it and will be more receptive to changing the silly restrictions in their home areas.

BTW, your skoolies are considered too small to be adequate housing in many areas because they are less than 1000 SF.

Re: Tiny Houses Petition

Just put up a pole building on your rural property, and park the rv in there...then add wings for rooms as the years go by... always keep it looking like a pole building...

Re: Tiny Houses Petition

The thing is WHY should you have too? If I want to live in 500 SF (or less) why can't I? Why should a single person be required to build a 3K to 4K (and up) house to live in? Some areas include ANY FREE STANDING STRUCTURE such as a storage building or garage to apply to the minimum square footage rules.This is to prevent some sneaky person from building a pole barn and stealth converting it into a residence. Lots of folks see existing old tiny houses and think that don't have minimum square footage regs but don't realize those structures are allowed because they are grandfathered in. NEW construction can't be that small.
