Help with Tie Down of Tiny house


Due to a fire in our main house, we recently purchased a tiny house 8x24, 10k lbs. We are living here until the main house is being repaired.

The Local Twp is stating that it must be tied down. Anyone know anything about tie downs? or know of a person/company in Northern NJ who can assist, either with performing the work or advising what equipment will be required.

Any mobile home dealer will have the knowledge of local city/county regulations regarding mobile home anchoring/utilities connections. You might want to give a local mobile home dealership a call. I'd suppose that most travel trailer dealerships won't be knowledgeable of "permanent/semi-permanent" accommodations and may give you some incorrect advice.

Alternatively, you can probably get the information from the local housing inspectors/zoning office. They would probably be reluctant to provide names or make recommendations for who to hire to do the work, but they should be able to provide a listing of who does such work.

Get the code from the permit people, if like here it will be inspected. Do it right the first time. They may say xx material placed every xx ft to frame to ground mounted into the ground xxx. I had 2 homes as vacation homes at the coast and paid a manufactured home installer to do mine. I even had to have the piling blocks on 6 inches of concrete. All inspected before use.
