Tiny House Regulations and Zoning Requirements in Kentucky

Kentucky has not been traditionally friendly to tiny houses, but some cities have started making progressive changes in recent years.

The best example is Lexington, the second largest city in the state.
In 2019, the Urban County Planning Commission voted unanimously to amendmend city zoning ordinances, essentially allowing accessory dwelling units in Lexington neighborhoods. The changes even have a provision for issuance of a conditional use permit, if the unit will be used for short term rental such as an Airbnb.

While regulations vary from cities and counties, these are the general requirements for tiny houses in places they are allowed:
1. Should be permanent and site-built on a foundation.
2. Prefabricated houses must meet all the other regulations.
3. Houses on wheels or mobile homes must be placed permanently on an area, subject to all other zoning requirements.
