LA Gives The Green Light For Movable Tiny Homes As ADUs
Los Angeles recently followed the lead of Fresno and San Luis Obispo to allow movable tiny homes ( also known as THOWS or tiny homes on wheels) as ADUs ( accessory dwelling units). They must be certified and built to the RV standard, NFPA 1192 or the Park Model Standard, ANSI 119.5.
A lot of ”tiny home” builders are building RVs or Park Models, though they are marketed as tiny homes. The builders usually voluntarily increase the standards beyond the minimum requirements with superior materials, 2X4 to 2X6 construction, higher insulation ratings and adjusting snow loads when applicable. They are built to all safety standards, including egress and fire safety.
