Building codes for tiny houses

Oregon and particularly Portland have been testing grounds for Tiny Houses, cleverly constructed homes with 400 sq ft or less. Some Millennials are interested because they can't afford a normal home. Homeless advocates think they could be an alternative to cardboard boxes and bridge overpasses. Some people just think they're cool or need a place for granny to hang out close by. But building and fire codes can be a barrier.

Here's an article with links to the legislation that is greasing their wheels.
