Hey tea friends. I’m reblogging this because there needs to be some awareness and change regarding building codes to allow for people to live in tiny homes. I am an Ontarian and hope to live tiny someday.
I cannot count the hundreds of times that people use the word “illegal” to describe the act of living in a tiny house. This word is being used incorrectly, over and over again, and I think this needs to stop… today!
There is NOTHING illegal about living in a tiny house in Canada. Tiny dwelling is not like like driving impaired, beating up on your wife or robbing a bank. The police will not come and charge you, arrest you, handcuff you and put you in jail.
