What is a tiny home?
Most people who choose a tiny home as their permanent living space think of it as more than just a home – they embrace a lifestyle of sustainable living and simplicity. Tiny homes allow people to get back to basics and focus more on enjoying life. Tiny home centric TV shows have helped to popularize the tiny home movement, but what these shows don’t always portray are the challenges of building codes and regulations as well as zoning issues when it comes to tiny homes. There is no “tiny home building code” per se, so each state has the freedom to designate the requirements as far as tiny home building and tiny home placement. At Clayton, we are leveraging over 60 years of experience in the home building industry to ensure that our tiny homes are built to comply with applicable state code requirements.
