Likely by now you’ve heard of the proposed tiny house code for IRC 2018. But what are its implications for the future of tiny housing in America?
Andrew Morrison, the tiny house luminary behind this historic effort, recently joined us on Tiny House Expedition Radio to discuss the nitty-gritty of the proposal, what it includes and doesn’t include, and the potential benefits for those seeking to live tiny legally.
As Andrew explains, a tiny house appendix in the IRC code would mean more than you may imagine,
- “And 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.”
If you want to support the proposal:
- You’re invited to attend the hearings in Kansas City on 10/22-10/24! Exact time of public hearing is not known. Learn more here.
- Or sign this Change.org petition.
- Lobby your voting ICC members: Per Andrew Morrison, “Please contact your local building departments and find out who is a voting member of ICC. Ask them to support the proposal with their vote. I believed they can vote electronically without attending the hearings, so it should be easy for them. Let them know that this proposal provides safe solutions to the difficult question of what to do with tiny houses. The more votes of support we have from ICC members, the better!”
