Overcoming Barriers to Tiny and Small Home Urban Integration: A Comparative Case Study in the Carolinas

Abstract

Although interest in tiny and small house living continues to grow, proponents of downsized living face a myriad of challenges, from restrictive land use policy to current lending and finance practices. Through a comparative case study, this article examines the crafting of tiny house policy in Asheville, North Carolina, and Horry County, South Carolina. The analysis has resulted in a better understanding of driving factors behind tiny house integration measures, challenges to accommodating tiny and small homes, stakeholder concerns, and best practices. The findings may aid planners and policy makers interested in accommodating tiny and small home infill.
