I wanted to thank Joe M. for the tip for this announcement that the city of Brainerd in Minnesota has changed its zoning code to allow for the construction of small homes.

This includes studio/efficiency apartments as little as 350 square feet and small houses as little as 500 square feet.

Although so far, since the change, no developers have approached the city with plans to build a small house. But I believe that will change soon enough.

Previously the minimum square footage requirement was 750 square feet. But in certain lots you’re now allowed to build smaller.
