Maryland Tiny Homes
Maryland Tiny Home Zoning
Maryland is home to a diverse range of landscapes, from the rugged Appalachian Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay, making it an ideal place for tiny home living. Maryland has not historically been considered one of the most friendly states for tiny home living. However, as interest in tiny homes continues to grow, some areas of Maryland are beginning to explore new ways to accommodate these alternative housing options.

Maryland Tiny Home Building Considerations
Maryland weather can fluctuate immensely. Because of this, it is important to ensure that your tiny home is built with dependable materials. A major investment we make in the quality of our tiny homes is insulation. All of our homes are constructed with 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 which we can do in any custom color(s) you like).
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.
