Movable Tiny Homes Might Become Legal (as ADUs) in San Jose!


I think we all need some good news in our inboxes during this pandemic, so here it is: The San Jose, California City Council went through the first reading of an ordinance that would classify Movable Tiny Homes as ADUs!

According to the Tiny Home Industry Association, it has to go through another reading and would then become law by the end of May! Once these THOWs are recognized as ADUs, it makes it much easier to find a spot to legally park them. Hopefully this legislation will pave the way for more cities across the country follow suit, and therefore make tiny living more accessible long-term. To read more about the legislation, click here.

    not a political statement, but GOOD for California! Finally doing something good and right! And try to keep prices down, as well!

      Ha ha, try and keep the prices down. In California? If that comes to fruition I might just have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn, New York.

    Marcia, I totally agree with you. My son owns a home in San Jose, a rather large one that takes up most of the back yard. But If his yard were big enough I would totally move into an ADU there!
