Good News for Tiny Home Fans in New Hampshire
Tiny home lovers rejoice!
According to seacoastonline.com, it appears the state of New Hampshire is doing a study regarding permitting tiny homes in some residentially-zoned areas to help with the housing crisis.
The tiny house lifestyle is really catching on with old and young residents alike.
Tiny homes are described as being 400 square feet or less, seacoastonline reports, but what concerns authorities is the infrastructure available to residents and safety codes such as fire and building.
If the bill is passed, this could be a game changer in solving the housing crisis and would also allow older residents to pass on their family homes to adult children while erecting a smaller living space on in their backyard.
According to seacoastonline.com, both Maine and New Hampshire have some of the most outdated building and safety codes in the United States, so now seems like a good time to include tiny houses in the new bill.
Washington state has recently passed a measure that would allow tiny houses, the article reported, and it will be interesting to see how the trend there progresses.
I am all about downsizing and living a minimalist lifestyle so I will be watching this bill closely.
