Jay Austin of Boneyard Studios is featured in this fantastic short film about the legality of tiny houses. The film focuses on zoning code in the DC area, but tiny house dwellers everywhere are faced with the same challenges. 

From the film description: "...Austin and his tiny house-dwelling neighbors at Boneyard Studios don't actually live in their own homes much of the time. To skirt some of the zoning regulations, they've added wheels to their homes, which reclassifies them as trailers – and subjects them to regulation by the Department of Motor Vehicles. But current law still requires them to either move their homes from time to time, or keep permanent residences elsewhere."

Once we all demand that building codes, zoning & ordinances change to reflect current needs and crises, then we will immediately see things getting better, more affordable and more sustainable.

GREAT DOCUMENTARY! People need to live somewhere yet it’s more than clear enough, it’s the 10% who control everything and everyone. Having lived in major metropolitan cities for decades, it took me moving to a town with a total of 156 people and at least ten times as many cows before I found our nirvana. City life appears to be where you have it all. I learned it’s actually quite the opposite.

If it is classified as a “trailer” then how about local trailer parks? I know that many are not very nice, but TH’s may eventually change that over time, as more people learn the benefits vs a regular mobile home. Plus if you want to live off the grid, you might try BLM lands. Not totally free, but really cheap. You do need holding tanks though as there are no services…
