The answer is, not really! The truth is that tiny houses on wheels and RV’s parked on residential properties are simply being tolerated while parked on residential property in Portland, Oregon for the time being.
In other words, they’re de-prioritizing code enforcement in these cases because changing the law is complicated (so this is a temporary solution for tiny dwellers in Portland). Please learn more, see what you may be able to do to help, and spread the word below. Thanks!
Will Other Cities Do The Same Thing and ‘Tolerate Tiny’?
This is the Log Cabin Tiny House at Tiny Digs Hotel in Portland. We’ve shared it with you before, but this is a fun update.
Jenna at Tiny House Giant Journey took an awesome video tour of the little vacation space, which helps you get a much better feel for the space and amenities offered. If you are looking for a rustic feel but don’t want to rough it, this little lodge might be the place for you!
Enjoy a couple screenshots and then take the video tour with Jenna below!
Well this is good news for the homeless in Portland, Oregon! The government has approved a new pilot program called “A Place For You” that will allow willing participants to housing homeless people in tiny modular units paid for by the government and charitable donations.
Under the pilot program taking effect this summer, the homeowners will take over the heated, fully plumbed tiny houses in five years and can use them for rental income…Residents just passed a $260 million housing bond, but it will be two years before those units are ready, said Mary Li, director of Multnomah County’s new Idea Lab, which developed the concept.
The best part? About 200 homeowners have already signed up to get more information about the project because they are eager to help the homeless in a tangible way. Read the rest of the story here.
