Our Tiny House Experience Runs Deep in Oregon

Cheeky Monkey Tiny Houses has a large presence in Oregon.  From Portland to Eugene, Oregon has always been a very tiny house-friendly state and we have a deep infrastructure here. For those of you who need financing, we have specific lenders we work with who lend here. Below is an overview of the local tiny house landscape.

Affordable Portland Tiny Home Builder

Portland has become one of the tiny house meccas in the United States, with two tiny house hotels and many tiny home builders. It also ranks as the largest city to allow full time living in tiny houses. We differentiate ourselves in the local market by being the most affordable tiny house company.

To further Portland’s reputation as a great place for tiny houses, Commissioner Chole Eudaly, head of the Planning and Zoning dept for the City of Portland has announced that the city will no longer enforce rules to not allow people to live permanently in tiny houses on wheels (THOW).  The city will also start preparing the way to codify new rules allowing people to live permanently in tiny houses.

As defined in the commissioner’s statement, the city will allow one tiny house per private property with an existing building and three tiny houses per commercial property with existing buildings. To learn more about the rules, please visit: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bds/article/659268

In addition to support from the city, there are several active local tiny house meetup groups and PAD (Portland Alternative Dwelling) a nonprofit puts on one of the most prestigious yearly meetings of tiny house advocates that includes city, county and state planners from all over the United States. You can learn more about them on their website at https://padtinyhouses.com/

From Eugene to Salem to Bend and Beyond

Tiny houses are taking Oregon by storm. There are very passionate tiny house movements in Eugene, Bend, Salem and other major Oregon cities. All of them are moving toward accepting tiny houses. To learn more about our homes and how they fit into the local community, please contact us. We’ve had the great pleasure of helping several people in Oregon buy their tiny house and would love to answer any questions you may have.
