Oregon Tiny Homes
Oregon is widely considered to be one of the epicenters of the national tiny home movement. In fact, Oregon’s tiny home movement can be traced all the way back to 1997, when Portland debuted an exciting new ADU (accessory dwelling unit) regulation, allowing homeowners to build them by right. In addition to the state’s progressive legislation, it’s thriving culture of sustainable and alternative living, numerous tiny home-specific communities, and incredible natural scenery make it an ideal place for tiny home living.
Tiny Heirloom is based in the beautiful state of Oregon, and our experienced team of tiny home designers and builders have helped catalyze the tiny home movement here. We absolutely love creating tiny homes to fit the local way of life and can’t wait to help make your Oregon dream home a reality.

In 2018, Oregon passed sweeping laws statewide known as Oregon Reach, which drastically improved regulations surrounding Tiny Houses and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). Many places in Oregon now allow for ADUs or tiny homes to be placed in the backyard of another property. Specific regulations still vary from county to county, so be sure to check with local building and zoning officials.
Some of the most popular and tiny-friendly cities in Oregon are Portland, Lakeview, Eugene, and Monroe. There are also more and more tiny house-specific communities popping up around the state, including Tiny Tranquility Tiny House Community on the coast, Mt. Hood Tiny House Village just outside of Portland, and more. For more ideas, read our complete guide to “Where to Put a Tiny House (Legally).”
Oregon is a wonderful place to join in on the tiny living movement. First, local regulations are more progressive than other parts of the country, making it easier to find a place to park your tiny home. Furthermore, you’ll be welcomed into a thriving culture of alternative and sustainable living (think “keep Portland weird”). Not to mention the endless natural wonders and outdoor activities you can enjoy! Read “10 Lifestyle Benefits of Living in a Tiny House Trailer” for even more reasons to make the move.
Tiny house prices vary depending on their size, the quality of the build and materials, the level of customization, and more. Generally, the cost of a professionally-built tiny home may fall anywhere from $45,000 (for something more basic or pre-built) to $100,000 or more (for something more customized and luxurious). For comparison, the median price of single-family homes and condos in Portland was $478,498 in 2020, and prices continue to surge.
