Tiny House Regulations Louisiana

Tiny House Friendly: 410

  • Tiny house regulations and codes may vary by city, town, or county.
  • All cities in Louisiana are supposed to follow the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC).
  • According to the 2012 IRC, one room in the tiny house must measure at least 120 square feet in size.
  • Safety regulations require a loft to have a window and stairs–not a ladder.
  • Stairs, hallways, and doors must be at least 3 feet wide and ceilings must be at least 7 feet tall (including loft areas).

By following the 2012 IRC, building a tiny house with all of the mentioned specifications isn’t easy. Tiny house enthusiasts are hoping Louisiana will put the previously delayed 2015 IRC into effect.
