Clay County considers allowing tiny houses

Current rules require 750-square-foot minimum for structures

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – Clay County leaders are looking into tiny homes and whether they have a place in the county.

The board of commissioners discussed this week changing zoning regulations that would allow tiny houses in the county.

Tiny houses can run as small as 500-square-feet or less.

The topic was brought up by a resident who represents a group of around 26 tiny house enthusiasts in the county.

He’s asking the county to change zoning regulations that require a minimum 750-square-foot structure on a lot.

No action has been taken yet, but the commissioners have the planning department looking into it.
