Tiny Homes\u0022 focuses on a single-story, low-cost, modular design that can form either a 1-bedroom \u0022single\u0022 unit or a 3-bedroom \u0022double\u0022 unit. The City of Chicago recently issued a public Request for Information (RFI),\nwith the goal of constructing new affordable housing using this housing type\nand gathering information to assess the viability of tiny homes under current\nzoning rules. Partnered with a local property developer and a\nneighborhood-based social services provider, Via Chicago found that with only minimal relief under the\nexisting code, affordable \u0022tiny homes\u0022 really can be constructed on\nexisting multi-family zoned lots. These dwelling units will be arranged side-by-side\nin a townhouse fashion - key to working with the current regulations, rather\nthan scattered individual homes - with the overall dimensions of the unit\nderived from multiples of a 25\u0027 x 125\u0027 \u0022standard Chicago lot\u0022. An\nabundance of city-owned lots makes this an intriguing concept as it could be\nquickly replicated and adjusted around Chicago. Constructing 6 tiny house units\non a double-lot results in the same density as a more traditional\n\u00226-flat\u0022, but at a fraction of the cost to build."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The partially prefabricated units can be\nquickly converted between these 1- and 3-bedroom units without compromising the underlying\ndesign, allowing for easy adaptation to changing market demands. This also\nallows for their use by two key population groups when it comes to affordable\nhousing - families and seniors. A 3-bedroom unit could comfortably house a\nfamily of 5, while the single unit has no accessibility concerns for an elderly\nresident with limited mobility - no bed lofts or micro-sized bathrooms to be\nfound here."]]]]}
