Call to Action! Proposed Tiny House Code & the Future of Tiny Housing

Tiny house luminary, Andrew Morrison has taken on a monumental challenge by creating this historic proposal:

Tiny House Appendix for the International Residential Code (IRC) 2018

If approved, this would become a model building code for all tiny houses (on foundation) used as a primary residence within the United States. It goes before the International Code Council (ICC) at their annual conference, October 22-24 in Kansas City, MO.

You're invited to attend! Learn more here.

If you can't attend, your voice can still be heard! Sign this petition to show your support of this proposed tiny house appendix. The tiny house community members who will be speaking at the ICC public hearing will share the number of petition signers to demonstrate the wide spread support.

You can make a difference!


Listen to our recent episode of Tiny House Expedition Radio, featuring Andrew Morrison. He shares the nitty-gritty details of the proposal, and it's implication for the future of tiny housing.

As Andrew explains, a tiny house appendix in the IRC code would mean more than you may imagine,

For all of us building tiny houses, it means that we will have a guidepost to building safe and healthy homes with a certificate of occupancy at the end of that road.

Simply healthy, safe housing that inspires people to live a life of joy, passion, and exploration.

Exciting news! We received permission to film the ICC public hearing where the proposed tiny house appendix for IRC 2018 will be heard. This will be included in Part 2 of our Living Tiny Legally.  Part 1 is now available on our YouTube channel.
