Tiny House Survey
of survey complete
This survey is part of a greater body of research that seeks to measure the awareness and current demand for Tiny Houses in the City of Vancouver and its neighbouring regions. We are also capturing data across BC and Canada, generally.
The results will help to inform the BC Tiny House Collective as they work with city planners and policy makers to explore opportunities for incorporating Tiny Houses, as a new housing stock, into neighbourhoods across the Metro Vancouver region.
BC Tiny House Collective
defines a Tiny House as:
less than 500 square feet
fully functional single housing unit that includes all of the basic amenities of a permanent home
detached or semi-attached (as part of a housing complex)
mobile (on wheels or a temporary foundation)
customizable, tailored to individual taste and budget
designed and built on the principles of affordability, community and ecological sustainability
