Introducing Asheville Small Home Advocacy Committee


More big news from Life in 120 Square Feet!

Over the last several months Matt and I have been working with several local tiny house enthusiasts and builders to launch a project to make tiny homes more legally viable in the city of Asheville.
Asheville SHAC is a group of dedicated volunteers working together and with the city and Buncombe County to make micro homes a viable solution for affordable housing, urban density, and walkability of the city and surrounding areas.
We have been speaking with the city government and are actively seeking projects where we can go through the process of permitting a tiny house or a community of tiny homes within the city limits.

Our grand unveiling happened on Tiny House Listings and we have launched a Facebook Page so people can keep up with our activity. 

We would like to thank our partners in this process:
 I have linked the Asheville SHAC Facebook Page at the top of my page so I encourage you to follow it to get all the latest information. Our hope is that we can not only help our own city of Asheville NC but provide a blueprint of the process for other towns and cities across the country to follow.

  1. This is great! We're new to the tiny home concept and putting plans together for building our own micro home. While Austin is pretty accepting, I feel the codes could put a strain on our plans. Thanks for sharing!
