Tiny House Regulations and Zoning Requirements in Alaska
Alaska is one of the most tiny home-unfriendly states in America.
Despite the growing trend in the state, authorities have not reacted in similar speed.
For instance, it’s most populous city Anchorage has multiple obstacles for people opting for tiny houses.
Here, tiny house is treated as a mobile home and are restricted to R-5 zoning district.
This means there is a large area requirement, yard requirement and even driveway requirement.
Further, tiny homes on municipal property must be connected to water and sewage, which is not very helpful for those constantly on the move or seeking to live off-grid.
But things seem to be moving in the right direction, especially outside Anchorage.
The small city of Sitka in 2020 relaxed most rules and removed obstacles that could lead to increased adoption of tiny houses.
