Heard of it, haven't seen it.  Just guest houses or separate sections of the main home.

There is a lot of discussion about this type of housing.  As far as I know, nothing has been decided.  Zoning issues.

No I have not been in one, and no I have never heard of a 'Granny Pod'!!  Apparently it is one way to care for aging parents on one's property, if I understand it correctly?  I do not know about current zoning for that particular type of building, though do know, that some homes here have casitas, which could be used for grandparents or teenagers Buzz Mackintosh

I hadn't that specific term before this question. I suspect there are zoning restrictions in many areas.

Yes I have heard & know they are acceptable but have not gotten inside one.

There was also a tiny house that you could build from 84 Lumber in our area that is 98 sq feet. Comes with wheels & a trailer if you want. You build it or have them build it.
