TINY HOUSES IN ARKANSAS
Tiny house friendliness: 1/10
Tiny house builders in Arkansas
Tiny House Regulations and Zoning Requirements in Arkansas
Arkansas is quite unfriendly to the tiny lifestyle. So much so that a city like Walnut Ridge and Lawrence County voted to ban homes less than 600 sq ft.
Many jurisdictions outside Arkansas allow homes with a minimum of even 200 sq ft.
Another city in the state, Rogers, has tough requirements on what is allowed. A tiny home in any residential area must be built on a foundation, from the ground up. That rules out factory-built units.
Rogers city also prohibits rezoning land for mobile homes, a category in which tiny homes fall under.
The argument is that tiny houses are mobile in that they are manufactured off site, and then moved onto the land.
Some individual communities within these district have even more stringent rules.
At the moment, it doesn’t look like things will change soon, meaning that for the foreseeable future, it will remain almost next to impossible to build or own tiny houses in Arkansas.
