Tiny houses hit snag in Houghton zoning ordinances

Hitch began building a tiny house in July. The 7.5′ by 20′ building on wheels is set up in a friend’s backyard in Portage Township, which gives special permits for tiny houses to meet zoning requirements.
Officials there passed the tiny house zoning ordinances just last year, but they said other communities will also need to address the issue soon.
