Going Tiny in Maryland
Just like the amazingly diverse landscape of Maryland, a tiny home can pack a lot of interest and personality into a rather small space. If you’ve been thinking of making the switch from a traditional home to a tiny house, you are not alone.
The tiny house movement is steadily growing as many more people realize having “less” doesn’t mean going without. In fact, tiny home dwellers can live in luxurious, spacious and sophisticated spaces at a fraction of the cost of a traditional home.
How Small is a Tiny House?
Tiny homes in Maryland typically run about 300-400 square feet. Local zoning ordinances and building codes may require homes be a certain size, so we recommend looking into the local rules and regulations before you begin designing your tiny home.
Where Can I Build My Tiny Home?
Depending on how you plan to use your tiny home – as a permanent residence, ADU for a family member, rental income such as Airbnb, mother-in-law or guest suite, vacation getaway – tiny home dwellers might find it easier to build tiny in more rural areas, which tend to have fewer restrictions on home size.
The most common places for tiny homes include:
- An owner’s private land
- Backyard of existing home
- Tiny house community
- Neighborhood lot
- RV park
