Atlanta OKs Tiny Houses
Tiny houses are closer than ever to being a reality in Atlanta.
Last week, the Atlanta City Council voted on and approved an amendment to city zoning laws allowing “accessory dwelling units.”
Local advocacy group Tiny House Atlanta called it “a great step in the right direction.”
The language in the amendment (starts on page 1360) carves out space for accessory dwelling units of larger main structures. A tiny house counts as one of these secondary units if it is less than 750 square feet and has its own kitchen.
Curbed pointed out the amendment also allows “accessory dwelling units without off-street parking on parcels without a curbcut or parcels without off-street parking,” making the affected areas more attractive to car-less Atlantans.
