MAINE MAKES PROGRESS THAT BODES WELL FOR NH PORTABLE TINY HOUSE SERVICES

MAINE LEGISLATION IS A WELCOME MODEL

Keeping on top of portable tiny house legislation for New England means posting subject matter that has been and continues to be in mostly positive transition. Not wanting to add to the hype, we don't comment often in view of the myriad of political baby steps. However, we think it's pretty cool that Maine has recognized tiny houses as a primary or accessory dwelling within single family zones. It's a great start for portable tiny houses in the fine State of Maine! In effect Fall of 2021!


Caveat - There is room in the policy language to disallow the tiny house on wheels on a town by town basis. The law does not offer automatic universal approval of the buildings. The legislation creates a situation where each town can differ on building codes that each decides to apply to the THOW. As the community knows, we can meet Life Safety codes and more but there are dimensional codes that can't practically be applied in an 8.5' wide tiny house on wheels. But back to the good news!: "In 2017, the Maine's Uniform Building and Energy Code was amended to include standards for tiny house sleeping lofts, stairs, ladders and emergency escapes."
