TINY HOUSE SOLUTIONS & LEGALITY IN TEXAS

Some questions to ask yourself when considering building a tiny home are:

  1. Are you wanting a tiny or small home that is mobile, semi-mobile, or permanent? If mobile or semi-mobile, are you willing to live in an RV Park and/or on private property outside of the city limits? If permanent, are their any city zoning laws and/or deed restrictions that require a minimum square foot of the residence?
  2. Are you retaining the services of a registered architect or hiring a design and build firm like Small House Solutions to design your new home? This is a significant initial decision.
  3. If you’re going with a tiny house travel trailer or park model, where are you going to park? Many RV parks are full and developers state wide are struggling to keep up with the growing demand for tiny house parking spaces. If you are wanting to live in a mobile tiny home on private property, do you have a competent real estate agent that can assist you with finding the right piece of property for you to do what you want to do, legally?
  4. If you are wanting to build and custom small house, do you have a real estate agent to assist you with the land purchase? Is your agent proficient in land purchasing and familiar with needs of a tiny or small house buyer? Have they worked in coordination with a custom builder before to ensure the property needs are being taken into consideration?
  5. If you’re wanting a tiny or small house ADU, backyard house, granny flat, backyard studio, man cave, or otherwise, how are you pursuing your due-diligence with regulators? Are you hiring a registered architect to perform site analysis, due-diligence, site-planning, floor plan drafting, etc… Or are your hiring a design and build firm like Small House Solutions to provide you with a completely turnkey service?
  6. What is your total “all-in” budget? This number should include land cost, plan design, engineering, permitting, utilities (well? septic?), clearing, site-preparation, and turnkey build.
