A bill introduced into the Florida Legislature would define “tiny homes” in state law and require the state Building Commission to draft building codes for the houses.
In this story from TCPalm.com, coverage of the bill, which addresses permanent tiny homes only, is discussed.
The Fellsmere City Council agreed Feb. 21 there were several changes to the city code that could be considered including, one that would permit smaller homes. But City Manager Jason Nunemaker said while he favors creating affordable housing in Fellsmere, he didn’t think that would extend to micro-size dwellings of 150 square feet.
“The way our code is written, the minimum square footage is 1000 square feet, and that’s fairly large,” said Nunemaker. “But it would be nice to offer something else that adds some affordability.”
