I’m writing a VERY short blog post to let you know some amazing news. According to the International Code Council’s (ICC) website, the Tiny House Appendix has PASSED!!! It is now be available for adoption across the United States!!!!
Tiny House Appendix ICC Vote Results
“THESE RESULTS ARE NOT FINAL as they are subject to certification by the Validation Committee and confirmation by the ICC Board of Directors in accordance with Section 10.1 of CP 28 Code Development (CP28).

RB168-16 —- Approved As Modified By Public Comment 1
As you can likely imagine, I am more than completely, utterly, and totally excited to share the news that the tiny house appendix passed. This is huge news for the tiny house community. It means that we will be able to work towards adoption across the US now. That’s another challenge that will take a lot of effort, but we can do it!
Huge Voter Turnout
Over 162,000 ICC votes were cast for all of the provisions up for approval. I don’t know the final vote tally yet, but I do know that we won!!!
More to Come
There is a lot of work ahead of us. We need to work towards the adoption of the appendix in every jurisdiction across the United States. It’s important that we start thinking about creating a new appendix for movable tiny houses. We need to start thinking about improving the current appendix. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I want to harness the energy of excitement and use it to help us build a solid platform moving forward.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of us tiny housers. We did it! Thank you all so much for your help in getting the vote out. You are a part of history!
A HUGE thank you to my team of amazing people. David Eisenberg, BA Norrgard, Macy Miller, Jeremy Weaver, Meg Stevens, David Latimer, James Herndon, Zack Giffin, Gabriella Morrison, Christian Parsons, and Alexis DeHart Stevens.
