12 Tips for Building a Tiny Home You'll Love
Rural areas sometimes have liberal zoning rules that allow for a tiny home to sit on open land -- a deal can be struck to place a tiny home on a homeowner's lot or land. A tiny house on wheels can reside in an RV park, although mobile homes need to meet standards of the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association for towing and moving. Houses with traditional foundations need to adhere to building codes where they're situated, and a plot may need to be purchased -- adding significant cost. Local regulations vary, so be sure to do some research before deciding what kind of tiny house to build.
Tiny houses predictably feel cramped from time to time, particularly when there are multiple residents. During the building process, consider incorporating porches, decks, and surrounding outdoor space where affordable seating can be set up. These features allow people sharing a tiny house to have some alone time, preventing claustrophobia from setting in and arguments from breaking out.
