Tiny House Regulations Kansas

Tiny House Friendly: 610

  • Tiny house regulations and codes may vary by city, town, or county.
  • Tiny houses built on foundations:
    • Unless stated otherwise, some areas state that at least one room must be 120 square feet and other rooms–except for the kitchen and bathroom–must be at least 50 square feet (according to IRC 2012).
    • The smallest single-dwelling residential district you can build in is RS3 and has a 3,000 square foot minimum lot size.
    • ADUs are permitted in RS7, RS10, RS20, and RS40 single-dwelling residential districts. They are not permitted in RS5 or RS3 districts.
    • The use of solar power is allowed. Small wind devices are also permitted within setbacks and 35 foot height limit. Propane is regulated by the IFC.
    • Composting toilets are not permitted.
  • Tiny houses on wheels:
    • Camping in a tiny house is only allowed on an approved campground.
    • No codes currently allow you to park on private land or backyard.

While this state does allow for tiny houses built on foundations, tiny houses on wheels appear to be more difficult to live in legally. Each county has different regulations, so be sure to check with your local municipality.
