After quarantines and lockdowns became a normal part of life, Teja was looking for a place of his own instead of living with roommates — but when the average cost of a home in San Jose where he lives was over $1 million, there was just no way he could get into the housing market.
That’s when San Jose agreed to allow ADUs in the city, and Teja worked as a trailblazer to get his professionally-built tiny house on wheels approved on his parent’s property. He’s now using that experience to help others get legal tiny homes situated in the city. What do you think of his awesome tiny?
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.
SAN JOSE — A plan to build “tiny homes” for San Jose’s homeless residents passed its first major test Tuesday, and now the city must answer the most difficult question — where to put these micro sleeping cabins.1
After a heated debate, the City Council voted 9-2 to approve a yearlong pilot program to build one tiny home village comprised of 40 units. Elected leaders by next month will come up with three potential sites for the tiny homes and eventually want to place a tiny home village in each of the city’s 10 City Council districts.1
