Join the Tiny House Movement in the Badger State

If you’ve ever thought about escaping to a tiny home, you’re not alone. Tiny houses offer full-time and part-time residents the flexibility and simplicity we crave. 

Who Can Live in a Tiny House?

Tiny homes are wonderful for singles, couples, millennials, retirees, and digital nomads who like to travel the country and work from anywhere. While some folks mistakenly think going tiny means giving up the modern amenities they’ve grown accustomed to, the opposite is true.

Living Tiny Offers the Ultimate Freedom

With less stuff to worry about, a smaller area to clean, and lower environmental impact, tiny home dwellers do technically live with less.

However, they do not have to give up the luxuries that make life a little more comfortable. Full-size appliances, tall ceilings, high-end fixtures, and incredible designs and floor plans help make a few hundred square feet feel much larger.

Getting the Most Out of My Tiny House

Not everyone who builds a tiny house will live in it full time. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Who is going to use it? 
  • Will I rent it out as a vacation rental?
  • Will a family member live in it full time (ADU)?
  • Do I want to use it as my own personal retreat?
  • Will it serve as a guest suite or granny flat? 
  • Do I want to be able to travel with it, or affix it to a foundation? 
  • How do I want to connect it to utilities (on grid or off grid)? 

Answering these questions will help inform your design and make decisions about materials within the home.

Where Should I Build My Tiny Home in Wisconsin?

Rules and regulations vary widely, and not all places are amenable to tiny houses. However, as more and more people jump on the tiny house bandwagon, citizens and town officials are working together to address the unique requirements of tiny house living. 

In many cases, tiny homes built on foundations are classified as ADUs – which is good news for tiny house owners. With that said, do some research in the jurisdiction where you’d like to build. Here are some possibilities to explore:

  • Milwaukee
  • Madison
  • La Crosse
  • Eau Claire
  • Wausau
  • Green Bay
