How One Advocate Helped Maine Legalize Tiny Homes

• 30 min

Not long ago, the Maine legislature passed LD 1981, a bill that defined tiny homes. It says "Tiny Home means a living space permanently constructed on a frame or chassis and designed for use as permanent living quarters." It then goes on to specify some other things about what a tiny home is. The Maine legislature then passed LD 1530, which is an act to allow people to live in Tiny Homes as a primary or accessory dwelling. This makes Maine the first state in the United States to legalize tiny house living statewide, and my guest, Corrine Watson was instrumental in making this happen. So in this conversation, Corrine will break down what these laws do and don't do, what the process of advocacy was like, and how you can look to Maine as a model to bring to your state or town to help the cause and legalize tiny houses.
