Tiny Houses

Alli Fam / NHPR


Tiny homes--homes that are smaller than 400 square feet--present both an opportunity and a challenge. For people looking to own something relatively inexpensive, tiny homes may be an affordable choice. But most New Hampshire cities and towns don’t have the housing codes or zoning ordinances in place to accommodate them. NHPR’s Peter Biello and Alli Fam went out to learn more.

A proposed bill coming to the New Hampshire State House could make things easier for those interested in the so-called tiny home movement.


The bill's sponsor says current state law doesn't give cities and towns much guidance when it comes to how to regulate tiny houses, which are often mobile and well under 1000 square feet.
