Tiny House Regulations Nevada

Last updated on July 20th, 2021 at 06:22 pm

  • Tiny house regulations and codes may vary by city, town, or county.
  • Nevada is fairly welcoming towards tiny houses, but individuals must abide by local regulations.
  • In Clark County, sheds over 200 square feet require a building permit.
  • ADUs (accessory dwelling units) cannot have kitchen or cooking facilities.

It is possible to live in a tiny home, dependent on local ordinances. In Clark County, the code requirements don’t specifically mention tiny homes–but tiny homes can work around some of the regulations.

Throughout Nevada, tiny homes are increasingly popular, but laws and guidelines have not been issued by the state. Local regulations in larger and smaller cities are generally accommodating, but these rules and restrictions vary dramatically. For example, in Clark County, a unit cannot be classified as an accessory dwelling unit if it has a kitchen or any cooking facilities. If the structure is classified as a shed and is more than 200 square feet in area, a building permit is required. Clark County does not have specific laws or restrictions related to tiny homes, and residential building and zoning regulations are lenient enough that tiny homes can legally be constructed.  See Below for the latest 2019 Update on Clark County/Nevada.  In a hint: They are not very Tiny House Friendly!
