Houston lacks traditional zoning, and is often viewed as a modern wild west where the free market, rather than government regulation, allocates land use. Most cities in Texas have at least some form of zoning that limits the construction of multiple residences on a single property; however, Houston lacks these regulations and is, in turn, an ideal city in which to build an ADU. As long as your property doesn’t lie within a deed restricted neighbourhood, only constraints such as setback parameters and parking requirements can be dictated by the city. Deed restrictions, population density, tax increment reinvestment zones, airports, buffering ordinance, historic preservation, and minimum lot sizes do come into play in different parts of the city, and that is why we recommend you use our expertise in designing and constructing your future ADU or tiny home in the Houston area.
