I’m reposting the following announcement from Tiny House Talk. This is serious folks. Proposed HUD regulations could shut down the tiny house movement. The video is from a different source. See link below. Input from Tiny House professionals is especially welcome.
“This is a quick announcement because we need your help to stop tiny houses from becoming illegal per the fed’s new HUD proposal regarding recreational vehicles.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development is proposing to make changes to the Code of Federal Regulations Part 3282 docket FR-5877-P-01 which covers Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations (as well as Revision of Exemption for Recreational Vehicles). We believe this includes tiny houses on wheels.
This proposal defines recreational vehicles, “designed only for recreational use and not as a primary residence or for permanent occupancy.”
