I don't see any issues with codes say X sq feet is to small to be a house.
There are some rules about not permitting permanent structures near water ways flood areas ect

I heard you couldn't build a permanent tiny house in Wilkes because of building codes. Does anyone know more about this?

I agree w/you antithesis, all we're doing is heating & cooling space we don't even need or use. Mainly we use only 3 rooms of our house. I could live in one if I had a sleep area where I couldn't hear anything & dark.

It's interesting to compare ourselves to other countries.

In Hong Kong, the average residential floor space is only 161 square feet per person! In China, 215 square feet. In the US, it's 832 square feet.

The only country with more room per person than us is Australia.

It does sort of make you think, why do we spend all that money on a 2,000 square foot house? What do we really get out of it in the long run?

We used an outhouse, had spring "gravity" water & cooked on a wood stove when I was growing up. Our house was 4 small rooms for 5 people. Now that's fashionable??

CitizenM hotels have the toilet in the shower pod and you have to walk through the shower to get to the bed.

I stayed at a hotel once where you couldn't close the bathroom door if you were on the toilet, it's not the life for me.

960 isn't a tiny house. .those hipsters wth a square footage of 350 are just being ridiculous

350 sq. ft. is pretty average for low income apartments in NYC. What's even crazier is that a lot of people share a space that size with a roommate. And even though I used the words 'low income' that 350 sq. ft. would probably cost around $1200 a month to rent.

The idea behind most tiny houses is that they are on a trailer frame so they don't need a permit to place it on property. I like this idea but without the castle theme

Tiny homes are typically built on trailers so that they can be moved. They are basically better built RVs.

I looked into this a couple of years ago when it first started being a fad. Like someone said, purchasing an RV is a lot less expensive and gives you a lot more bang for the buck. If you have your own property getting the Hook ups needed can be expensive with either but you'd save some on your property taxes with a More Mobile type home than a fixed location home. Someone who lived up near the dam has an Ideal RV home, it's very well kept and they've gone to the troubles of putting a roof over it but they can still move the RV with ease. It also had a deck best I recall. That's the way to go!
