2024’s Best States for Tiny House Living

~ 2024’s Best States for Living in a Tiny House ~

Tiny houses are a great alternative to purchasing a standard homes. Easier and much more affordable to maintain than a regular house, a tiny home can provide the independence and privacy of home owning at a fraction of the cost.

To mark TinyFest California this month, LawnStarter ranked 2024’s Best States for Tiny House Living.

Best States for Tiny House Living

LawnStarter compared the 50 states on the legality of constructing a tiny home. They looked at the suitability of building in an urban setting based on average yard acreages and in a remote environment based on off-grid lifestyle-friendliness, a separate LawnStarter ranking that consists of 23 key factors.

See the 5 best (and 5 worst) states for the micro life here, followed by key takeaways. (Don’t see your state? Check out the full ranking.)

How Tiny Is Tennessee?

How does Tennessee rank as a tiny house state? Although neighboring states Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia made the top ten list, Tennessee is almost smack in the middle of the 50 states coming in at number 28 for tiny house living. The Volunteer state rated a 3 for legality, an 11 for urban lifestyle and a 18 for remote lifestyle.

Maybe we can improve Tennessee’s tiny house score before the next survey to be more in line with the high score of our neighboring states.
