It’s always fun to see a tiny home built on a foundation, isn’t it? This one is 14×35, so approximately 490-sq.-ft., right? You could call it tiny or small, it’s up to you. But what do you think, do you like it?
We got a tip last week that Cook County, Minnesota is tiny house friendly, but I wanted to double-check before spreading a rumor.
I contacted Bill Lane, the Planning and Zoning Administrator for Cook County, and he straightened out the details and specifics for those of you interested in going tiny in Minnesota. It’s certainly not a free-for-all, but they are more receptive than many counties!
In short: You’ll need to build on a foundation (or remove the wheels) and comply with zoning and building regulations (and pay taxes!), but it can be done.
Take a look at some pictures of Grand Marais, named one of the coolest US small towns by CNN, and then read what Bill told us below!
Hale Kilo I’a is a unique twist on Hawaiian and modern architecture.

Prefab homes have had a negative reputation in the past for being mass-produced and poorly made but Hewing Haus is one of several amazing companies that are challenging this stereotype by building prefab homes with quality materials and attention to detail.
They have a series of small home designs ranging in size from 200 ft2 to 600 ft2 and we had the chance to tour the smallest model at their warehouse in Chilliwack, British Columbia.
These tiny homes are not built on trailers. Instead, they can be transported on a regular transport truck and craned into place onto a variety of foundations, including helical piles. They can be used as cabins, bunkies, retreats, rentals, accessory dwelling units, and laneway houses to name just a few options, and they can be set up almost anywhere (be sure to check out the video below to see a bunkie being installed on top of a cliff with a helicopter!).
