We’re thrilled people are excited about tiny homes in Washington state. Washington Tiny House Association in partnership with local builders, tenants, future buyers and the American Tiny House Association have been urging our counties and cities to allow for Tiny homes on wheels and on foundations to be allowed. We had a huge uphill battle as each jurisdiction passes the buck to someone higher on why Tiny homes could not be allowed. Amazing news Appendix Q – IRC code was passed last year allowing tiny homes to be legal on a federal level for full time residency. The fight wasn’t over a we need Washington to adapt the IRC standards for the State then in which the counties and cities would be able to adapt policies in force. With the help of an amazing Senator Hans Zeiger (25th District) Please watch these bills and when we will have the opportunity to come show support and testify for the need!
