Greenfield’s tiny home movement

The town is looking to take on a green initiative

GREENFIELD, Mass. – A new ordinance will bring the national tiny house movement to Greenfield.

Tiny homes provide residents with a green alternative within a 400-square-foot space.

Greenfield will first have to approve a fairly complicated accessory dwelling unit ordinance this summer in order for construction to begin on the tiny home communities. If the city does not approve the ordinance, people can opt to section off a portion of their current homes or create a tiny home that is completely detached.

There’s also a proposal to build seven tiny homes in a community setting at 100 Deerfield Street, where they would be built on less than an acre of land.

The next tiny home discussion will take place next month.
