The town council of Amherstburg recently voted to allow tiny homes on foundations with a minimum 323-square-feet (30-square-meters) minimum and within 20 meters distance from the primary dwelling, according to the Windsor Star.
Tiny homes take many different shapes and forms, even when it comes to zoning and real estate. One way to get legal tiny houses back on the map is through RV parks, right? That’s one way. Another way to do it is through ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units), also known as guest houses, secondary dwellings, accessory structures, and the like.

Town of Amherstburg Votes to Allow ADU Tiny Homes
The Details: how Amherstburg has legalized some Tiny & Small Homes
Amherstburg will allow secondary dwellings, including tiny houses.
The town’s council voted Monday to allow secondary dwellings in single detached houses, semi-detached houses, row houses and accessory structures, like garages — or tiny houses.
They must be a minimum of 30 square metres or 323 square feet, built on a foundation and be located within 20 metres of the primary dwelling, in the side or back yards.1
What do you think about the fact that more and more towns and even cities like Los Angeles are adapting their laws to allow for more development of tiny and small homes? It’s pretty cool, right?
