    How do you calculate property taxes & zoning on something like this?
    How about utilities?

    • Avatar James D.

      It can require more work to estimate the value of the property with nothing similar to compare to but the land, development, and costs of the structure are known values they can use to determine a market value for the property and from that they have all they need to apply property taxes to it… Assuming there isn’t an exemption like it being declared a historic site or public property that isn’t privately owned but only being leased, or it’s a structure that isn’t on land or otherwise non-permanent, etc.

      While utilities are handled the same regardless…

      So it’s mainly just the zoning that’s tricky but unless there’s a specific ban on the type of structure or issue with violation of the building codes then it’s usually just a matter of convincing the local authorities to permit it or provide an exception to allow it…

      Mind, this crane has historic significance to the area and the locals wanted it to be somehow preserved as a kind of monument to that history… So the local authorities were very open to making this work…

    Who would have ever thunk of a 3-story tiny house on a crane? What scenery! What a view! You could make a bunch of these at a loading/offloading site where there are multiple cranes and sell time-shares on weekends! Wow! I am impressed.
