Tiny House Zoning Challenge Pays Off in Washington State

Christian and Laurie Kazimir wanted to build tiny beach cabins on their Olympic Peninsula lot in Washington State, but they were told that each structure had to meet the building code’s minimum square footage in order to be built.

With persistence, the couple was able to achieve a tiny house zoning workaround by politely educating the local officials and slowly reviewing the rules and legal language with them. By placing four tiny homes on the single multi-family lot, the total square footage surpassed the square footage requirement for construction.
