Here are 10 tips for building tiny houses that meet the zoning laws of your region.

  • Build your tiny home in a friend's backyard.
  • Find a job that makes it legal to live in an ADU.
  • Put your tiny house on a trailer.
  • Regularly move your tiny house on wheels.
  • Only live in your tiny house-recreationally.

Can tiny homes be built on a foundation? When you decide to build your tiny house on a foundation, you have several options to choose from including slab, crawlspace, basement, or on piers. While other building foundations exist, these are the-few most suitable for a smaller construction like a tiny house.

Do you need a permit to build a tiny house on a trailer? While this type of tiny house is an RV by law in most areas, some campgrounds do not permit this type of structure on the premises. Furthermore, some states and local jurisdictions only permit full-time residency in a tiny house on wheels if it is parked in an RV park designed for permanent-residency.

Do you have to pay property taxes on a tiny home? If you build a tiny house on wheels you are not subject to a property tax. That has long been an argument for tiny housers. But themoment you park that tiny house on a parcel of land that “you own” you owe real estate tax to your local government. Choose not to pay that real estate tax one year and see what happens.
