A new ordinance that went into effect on January 3rd, in Fresno, California, allows tiny houses to be placed on residential property legally.
According to the Fresno Bee, tiny houses on wheels are now… “considered backyard cottages thanks to changes in the city’s zoning and development code. That means tiny homes can be used as independent living quarters on the same lot as a single-family house granted it meets some requirements. Previously, the mobile units could only serve as temporary lodging.”
Pat Mosley, owner of California Tiny House, a Fresno builder, worked with Fresno City Council Member Esmeralda Soria on changing the code.
