LA Gives Green Light To Moveable Tiny Homes As ADUs

In Building Codes, Moveable Tiny Homes by Janet Thome

Announcement from Dan Fitzpatrick, Tiny Home Industry Association, (THIA ) President

Fabulous news from LA. The City of Los Angeles has given the Green Light to Movable Tiny Homes as ADUs!
The Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) ordinance has been APPROVED today by the LA City Council. This ordinance permits Movable Tiny Houses as permissible and permanently habitable accessory dwelling units (ADU). The ordinance becomes law in time for Christmas!

 

 

Suffice it to say that, now that the nation’s 2nd largest city recognizes Movable Tiny Homes as habitable ADU’s, it will go a long way in providing a model for other cities around the country.
Thank you to American Tiny House Association (ATHA) and Tiny Home Industry Association (THIA) and a special thanks to Tessa Baker of Los Angeles Co-built Homes (LATCH) that did the early groundwork with LA elected officials.

A special thanks to Dan Fitzpatrick, the President of THIA and Director Of Government Relations for being at the forefront of forging pathways for permissible and permanent for tiny homes as dwellings!
