Georgia Tiny Home Zoning

Tiny homes are a great option and growing trend in the Peach State. From Atlanta, across the rolling hills, and out to the rural countryside, tiny home living is a great option in Georgia. The state is ripe with not only peaches, but also adventure. And with so much to offer, it’s no surprise that many people love to set up their tiny homes here.

Overall, Georgia is a friendly state for tiny home living. However, zoning requirements and build codes still vary from county to county, and some cities have their own unique zoning laws. Whether a tiny house on wheels is lawful on any given piece of land will depend on the laws and regulations of both the state and local government. Additionally, there are certain specifications that tiny house builders must comply with such as square footage, dimensions, and sanitation requirements. Some cities are more lenient than others.

Below are some great resources to get you on your way to Georgia tiny home living.

Georgia Tiny Home Building Considerations

What should you look for in a tiny home bound for Georgia? Of course, the Georgia heat can be sweltering and the winters can be cold, so you’ll want to be sure your tiny home has effective climate control and insulation. 

At Wind River, we use 2×4 framing and spray foam insulation. Spray foam has by far the highest R-value available for the tiny home application, and wooden construction allows less air infiltration than steel framing when the temperature rises. Additionally, we use LP SmartSide for a low-maintenance and durable siding that won’t warp or change with fluctuating temperatures and can be painted in any custom color.

Investing in solar power for Georgia tiny homes is also a great idea. We recommend a ground mounted array for a semi-permanent tiny home setup. Additionally, housing the heavy batteries in a separate outbuilding will allow you to make the most of your tiny home’s precious square footage while living an off-grid, eco-friendly lifestyle if you choose.

For any non-foundation structure, free moving air under the home can affect your indoor heating and cooling. We use spray foam insulation and cover the underside of your tiny home with a critter barrier to ensure there is no disruption to the insulation and reduce the risk of any issues. Additionally, there are endless skirting and decking options that can not only add curb appeal for your home, but act as a further critter and weather barrier. 

Lastly, humidity in Georgia tiny homes is an important factor during the hotter months. You’ll want to explore good HVAC systems and other options for dehumidifying your home. All of this works in tandem to keep the hot out and cold in, making your Georgia tiny home a relaxing oasis.
