Finding A Home For Your Tiny Home



“Where can I park my tiny home?”

One of the most frequently asked questions is “Where can I park my tiny home?” And the answer to this is… Well, it depends! Zoning laws are rapidly changing to help the growing population of tiny home owners find a place to park their house. There are 3 general sites a tiny house can be parked:

1. RV Park/Tiny House Community

2. Back Yard of a residence, like an Accessory Dwelling Unit (in-law house)

3. Piece of land connected to septic and electrical system

5 Easiest States To Park A Tiny

Architect Magazine determined that California, Oregon, Texas, South Carolina and Florida are the easiest states to find a home for your tiny home. If you’re currently residing in one of these states, then you’re in luck! But, don’t feel defeated if you’re not looking to park your tiny in any of those states, there are incredible tiny houses in all 50 states! 

Resource Guide!

For the most up to date resource for parking regulations check out this compiled list of zoning regulations. You can also look at different communal living options across the country at Tiny House Community. Your best resource is going to be networking with folks who have successfully (& legally!) parked their tiny in the same region you’re hoping to park your tiny. Lastly, The Tiny Home Builders have created an interactive map that shows all the different tiny’s around the world. Is there a tiny near you?

We have sent several of our tiny homes to a nearby tiny house community called Tiny Tranquility, located along the Oregon coast. There are currently 5 Tru Form Tiny houses parked at this site. If you aren’t ready to commit to a tiny house but want to experience tiny living, then we recommend booking a trip at one of the rentals offered at Tiny Tranquility!
