While tiny homes are becoming increasingly popular, zoning regulations and land use development codes in counties across Colorado make placing the structures a challenge. Because the homes are considered recreational vehicles, most jurisdictions in Colorado have rules that prevent them from being used as permanent housing. But, at Peak View Park in Woodland Park, owners of tiny houses are able to circumvent the rules because the former mobile home park outdates the county regulation that stipulates RVs can only be used as temporary housing.
