Update: Appendix Q Adopted in Boulder! Implications for THOWS?
1/22/20 Update: City of Boulder Approved Appendix Q
As expected the Boulder City Council voted to approve the IRC Appendix Q for tiny houses. While it primarily applies to homes, 400 square feet and less, built on a foundation, there's an exciting opening for movable tiny houses.

Attend the Boulder City Council Public Hearing on Appendix Q
On Tuesday, January 21, the Boulder City Council is holding the second reading of the IRC Appendix Q. It's likely that they will vote to approve it, as well. Attend to show your support for tiny houses. Meeting details available here.
By adopting this building standard, it opens the door for more placement options by giving the Land Use and Zoning Department a much-needed tool. One thing is certain, Boulder, Colorado desperately needs more affordable housing options.
