'Tiny homes' hit the Utah real estate market

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - The latest real estate craze has officially made it to Utah!  

Pleasant Grove City recently decided to start allowing 'tiny houses' in city limits, but the approval does not come without regulation.  

Under the new ordinance, residents who own already-existing full-size homes can build a tiny home as a type of secondary space or accessory apartment.  The city does require that the little living quarters is at least 192 square feet, stands on its own foundation, and has direct utility/water line connections to the main house, among other stipulations. 

Good 4 Utah's Ali Monsen caught up with some of Utah's first tiny home buyers, who sold their home in Orem in January to start living 'the tiny life.'  

Watch Ali's video above to hear Jamon and Marla Scott's story.

Alpine Tiny Homes is building an average of three tiny homes every month.
