Tiny living has certainly continued to grow in interest, popularity and reality since we opened up our doors in 2015, and we are proud to see the evolution and growth of the industry.
In the the article, Trent tackles topics like zoning, parking, financing, and much more.

"Trent Haery, co-founder of tiny home builder Modern Tiny Living, based in Columbus, Ohio, explains that the rules for building a tiny house boil down to two types of regulations:
State and local regulations may dictate permitting requirements, restrictions on the home’s size and guidelines for construction. Plus, some states, such as California, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Oregon and Texas, are more tiny home-friendly than others. By doing this research, you’ll know what you’re allowed to build and where, and how best to go about planning the project.
“The safest bet is always to work directly with the city officials and ask them, as opposed to taking a risk and hiding in your house hoping no one sees you,” Haery says."
Great job to Trent for representing both Modern Tiny Living and the tiny house industry so well in this article!
