Garfield County OKs tiny houses

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

B glen­wood springs» Tiny homes are com­ing to Garfield County as com­mis­sion­ers have ap­proved land use and build­ing codes that al­low the small dwellings in un­in­cor­po­rated parts of the county.

The Post In­de­pen­dent re­ported that the com­mis­sion­ers ended re­quire­ments that sin­gle-fam­ily homes be at least 20 feet wide and 20 feet long. They also changed build­ing codes to al­low lad­ders in lieu of full stair­cases.

County staff has been re­ceiv­ing in­quiries about tiny homes from peo­ple look­ing to buy land and save on build­ing a home. Other res­i­dents have been look­ing to build the un­der500-square-foot struc­tures for ag­ing par­ents or chil­dren who want to move out of main homes.
