Ryan’s Cracking The Code Updated

cracking the code update

Ryan Mitchell from The Tiny Life contacted me recently to let me know about an update to his popular book Cracking the Code and I wanted to share it with you as it is full of great information. Here is what Ryan has to say about it:

Many of you have checked out our ebook Cracking The Code – A guide to building codes and zoning for tiny houses; well today I have some good news! We have updated the ebook and added 14 more pages of core content to the ebook with our Toolkit!

Here’s the kicker! If you bought the old version, I just sent you the updated version for FREE! So those of you who supported The Tiny Life, thanks so much, we hope you’ll enjoy the free update.

The Toolkit comes out of some great feedback we got from the first version, where I presented what I came up with as the single best approach to tiny houses and building codes. What we have learned since then is that people were able to take what we taught them and then started coming up with some creative ways to make tiny houses legal in their own towns. So I took those approaches and created this Toolkit which teaches you 10 additional ways to make a tiny house legal!

sorry to be so naive,but by ebook do you mean a pdf file? Or something that needs a kindle or similar device to read?

I live in Northern California. Are these codes applicable to CA? What about the differing codes in each county? Thanks so much!

    I am in Northern CA too….have some empty land and have a garage that I want to convert……and two ground floor apartments in existing hillside houses. Does it apply to those things too?

Tiny homes are either vehicles or structures as defined in the motor vehicle and building codes, which vary from state-to-state, and even municipality-to-municipality in some areas. The building codes do not address tiny or large homes, but rather put forth minimum code requirements for a structure to be legal in an attempt to build in some basic protection and safety elements to structures. In addition, zoning regulations, which control land use, control what can be placed on a property. So, the logical scenerio is to determine if a single family dwelling is permitted on the property, then if it is, and all zoing requirements are complied with, then the structure must be built in compliance with at least the minimum building code requirements. If you anticipate having a vehicle mounted living unit, then you may find yourself having to comply with DOT regulations that control vehicles and RV’s. Either way, you can’t just throw a pile of lumber and parts together, drag it down the road at risk to others, then live in it while risking your own life because you thought you knew what you were doing when you built it, even though you were well intended. Small homes are the way of the future, I truly believe that, but with some exeptions, it’s not as easy as it’s being made out to be.
