About

LegallyTiny features the stories of people who have navigated the building codes, regulations, and zoning in their area, and are now living tiny legally–both on wheels and on traditional foundations. There may also be a few stories with not-such-happy endings, if we can learn from the experience. There will be links to communities where you can legally live in a tiny house, and RV parks that accept tiny houses on wheels. And finally there will be links to builders who are RVIA certified, or the equivalent, which makes their tiny homes on wheels easier to place in RV parks, and in some states on private land.

Bottom line? If there’s a story on the web about living tiny, legally, I’d love to feature it! So if you find a story of someone living tiny legally, please share it with me, so that I can share it on LegallyTiny.com.

Knowledge is power, so let’s build a resource to help all tiny house lovers figure out the codes and regulations and zoning in their own area, and make it easier for all of us to live legally in a tiny house!

Who am I? My name is Cheryl Spelts, and I’m an artist, a photographer, a recent law school graduate, and I live in a tiny house on wheels that I designed myself. I also own Legally Tiny!

As a tiny house owner I’m particularly interested in the challenge of finding places to legally place and live in a tiny house on wheels. I’m also fascinated by zoning and the minimum size limits that keep many people from building on a foundation as small as they’d like. And while the topic is way too big for one law school graduate to figure out how to live tiny legally, on a national, or international scale, it is possible to collect and publish the stories of people who have actually found a way to live tiny legally, in their area. So that’s the goal!
