SOLUTIONS TO TINY HOUSE PARKING PROBLEM

Solutions to your tiny house parking problem

After you’ve made the decision to go tiny, finding a Tiny House parking space is the first step towards realizing your goal of going tiny. Finding a tiny house parking is the most important and the biggest problem you’ll face in your tiny house journey. This is the most crucial question that many struggle to find an answer for, there was no legal term for anything called ‘Tiny Home’, but things are changing now.

The government doesn’t consider a tiny home to be a place of residence, there’s no law around it. However, there are a lot of ways to bypass the legalities and find a place to live in without breaking the law.
There are various places you can park your Tiny House.

TEMPORARY URBANISM: A GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE

Temporary Urbanism is an initiative by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The underlying idea on temporary urbanism is that there are several downtrodden urban lands which are abandoned and no more in use. The government wants to lease out these lands to the general public for the setup of public gardens, pop-up stores, restaurants on wheels, and many other similar categories.

I think that this is one of the areas where the government is actually allowing you to lease out a property for yourself where you can park your tiny house on wheels (THOW), and also improve the downtrodden property. This is one of the ways to find a tiny house parking if you can find a spot like that.

To get an idea of which area is under this scheme, you gotta call your county’s planning department.

YOUR OWN LAND: THE BEST TINY HOUSE PARKING

Well, this is the most obvious spot where one can park his tiny house. If you own land or have rented it, it can be used as a tiny house parking space as long as the local zoning or planning department allows you to do it. Okay, not everybody has their own land, in that case, your parents, relatives, and friends may be of some help here. Ask them, they might agree. But you’d need to adhere to local zoning laws.

AIRBnB IN THE AREA

Look for Airbnb (and other competitors of Airbnb) to look for people offering their house/property. Give them a call, talk to them and ask if you can park your tiny home in their property.

From what I have gathered from my tiny house group on facebook, a lot of people have found their landlords through Airbnb. It’s worth the shot if you are going to stay only for a brief period of time.

CRAIGSLIST

Look for a house with a huge backyard for rent on Craigslist, there are high chances for you to find a place that’ll let you allow to park your tiny house on their property (obviously at a cost).

Look for ‘Houses on rent’, ‘RV parking’, ‘Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)’

RV Park for parking your THOW

RV PARKS

When a house is built on wheels, it comes under the category of recreational vehicle home. RV homes have completely different zoning laws compared to a conventional home, and the good news is that the laws are easier and lenient. RV parks can be a great place to park your Tiny house in. However, some RV parks demand that the RV should be made by specific manufacturers for safety considerations and they don’t allow DIYers. (Why You Should Hiring A Builder)
A lot of tiny houses on wheels are RVIA certified and if you can get your tiny house RVIA certified, you can use most of the RV parks as your tiny house parking.

CALL LOCAL ZONING OR PLANNING DEPARTMENT

You gotta call your local zoning or planning department to ask them about local ordinance pertaining to parking of tiny homes on a piece of land.

Well let me give you some useful tip of what to ask them, because you’ll definitely need answers to these questions:

a. Is there a minimum square footage amount that designates a structure as a permanent home?

b. Can you legally park an RV on the property in question?
•If so, can you park it on the property without a permanent dwelling being present there too (obviously, this won’t apply if a permanent dwelling is located there)?
•If so, can you live in your RV full time?

c.If you want to park somewhere that will also allow you to have a nearby studio, office or guest house on the property, do the local zoning laws permit accessory dwellings like your tiny house on a trailer?
•If so, are there minimum requirements for square footage?
•If so, does the accessory dwelling need to be built on a permanent foundation?

Walmart Retail Store

WALMART

Well, you can technically park your RV or tiny house on wheels on a parking lot of Walmart and they basically let you there. They are basically motivated by the idea that you are regularly buying a lot from Walmart because it’s closed.
