News just broke that the city of Cape Coral, Florida is considering allowing tiny houses in certain areas.
According to Wink News, “city leaders spoke in favor of ‘tiny houses’ Monday during an informal Committee of the Whole meeting.”
Current zoning laws in Cape Coral require new homes built to a minimum of 1,100 square feet. Even though a final decision has yet to be made, the City Council members said they would be okay with the idea of allowing smaller homes to be built as long as 1) they are in a specific zoning area of the city, 2) they are built permanently on a foundation, 3) they built to be tolerant of hurricanes, and 4) that the homes are built to meet Florida’s building codes.

What are YOUR Thoughts?
What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments!
Do you see more of this happening throughout the rest of the country?
I do! Especially since tiny homes on foundations are a better long-term solution for housing than a non-permanent structure (on wheels). I believe the future of the tiny house movement is moving in this direction in order to become a dependable and readily available long-term housing option/solution.
