The International Code Council reported that public comment RB168-16, the tiny house appendix, received the required two-thirds majority vote and will be part of the 2018 International Residential Code.
As a result, a certificate of occupancy can be granted for a tiny house built to meet the provisions of the adopted code appendix. However, each jurisdiction currently enforcing the IRC must now adopt the appendix for it to become law.
"RB168-16 brings much needed safety standards to tiny house construction," Tiny House Collaborative founding member B.A. Norrgard said in a statement.
