How Small Is a Tiny House?

Tiny houses are meant to be small. But, how small is small? Tiny house builders in Mississippi can construct any sized dwelling, but they usually range between 100 to 900 square feet. The average tiny house size: a mere 400 square feet. Adding a loft or second floor storage is one way to add square footage without actually increasing the footprint of the home.

You might think that moving into a house one-tenth the size of today’s average home would feel cramped, but surprisingly, most layouts offer an open and roomy feel. Adding plenty of natural light is one way to open the space up and make it feel bigger.

Where Can I Put my Tiny House in Mississippi?

When it comes to placing tiny houses, Mississippi’s zoning laws vary depending on the area you want to place it. The most common places to put your new tiny home include:
