Potential Benefits for Towns that Embrace Tiny Houses

  1. Creates more affordable housing, thus reducing the number of people requiring public assistance.
  2. Increases density thereby allowing people to live closer to employment & decreasing the burden on highways.
  3. Allows generations to stay together via ADUs for elderly parents in the backyard of adult children, decreasing dependence on medicaid.
  4. Increases the tax base by creating more taxable single family dwellings (assuming tiny houses are allowed on their own land and property taxes are based on a minimum that covers services such as education and police/fire protection).
