As you may have noticed the TINY HOME craze has subsided here in Chico and I believe part of the reason is the regulations required to obtain a permit for them overshadow the appeal.  A Tiny Home is considered a Second Dwelling Unit or Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) by the City of Chico.
We get asked fairly often about guest houses, in-law quarters, 2nd units, granny units, and tiny houses. Call them what you want but they are desired more and more these days.
CAN YOU BUILD A SECOND UNIT ON YOUR PROPERTY? The short answer is, if you are zoned R1 (Low Density Residential) or R2 (Med Density Res) then Yes – IF you meet the requirements!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SECOND DWELLING UNIT (ADU) AND A GUEST HOUSE? The short answer is, an ADU is rentable, has its own utility meters, is hooked up to sewer/septic, and has a bathroom and kitchen. A Guest House is 250sqft or under, with no kitchen, and may not be rented.
What about putting 5 tiny homes on one lot?
