In this course we will define a tiny home and explore the history and appeal of this seemingly recent movement. Challenges associated with the legal development of this alternative residential option will be touched on and options for regulatory refinements and new provisions will be presented. We will explore options for siting tiny homes as a primary use, accessory use, and within a village of homes. This course will also provide information on recent, proposed additions to the International Residential Code that address tiny homes. We will end with a discussion of tiny homes in the media and concluding thoughts.
This course is approved for 1 AICP CM Credit.
