A tiny home is a house constructed using conventional methods on the scale of a travel trailer. Instead of a permanent foundation, these homes are built on flatbed trailers and typically don’t exceed 400 square feet.
Yes. Tiny homes are legal in the United States, but where they can be parked and how they can be used vary between states. Before parking or traveling between states with your tiny home, be sure to check the hud.gov for local tiny home laws.
Many tiny home owners park their homes on their own private property or rent property from someone else. When traveling, RV trailer parks or campgrounds are a great option. Always be sure to check local rules and regulations before parking your tiny home.
Absolutely, and it is good idea to do so. However, the type of policy you buy will depend on how the tiny home was built and how it is used. For example, RV insurance may be the right choice if you choose to travel with your tiny home. For those that plan to stay put, a mobile home policy may be better. Consult your insurance provider for options that fit your lifestyle best.
There are two main ways to get water into your tiny home. If you plan to stay put for awhile, you can connect to a potable water source with a hose, exactly how you would at an RV park. The second way is installing a tank into your tiny home. Manually filled, the tank has a pump that circulates water into your home. Keep in mind that this requires an electrical source to function.
If you travel with your home, RV parks and camp ground typically have a septic connection. If you are parked long term, a standard sewage pipe can be connected into the sewer system or a septic tank on your property.
