The scope of this specification is to provide minimum requirements to safeguard public health, safety and general welfare of the customer, general public, owners and occupants of tiny houses to achieve uniformity in design of temporary and permanent foundations.


tiny house, foundation, temporary, permanent, skids, connections


The purpose of this specification is to address the challenges and the lack of common knowledge faced by the new tiny house industry by creating a consensus specification for temporary and permanent foundations. The users will be manufacturers, builders, building officials, legislators, third-party certification agencies, architects, engineers, designers, real estate agents, lenders, insurance agencies and owners.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
