Video: Tiny houses have a huge problem in Anne Arundel County

HO WANT TO DOWNSIZE TO A LIFESTYLE THAT FITS INTO LESS THAN 400 SQUARE FEET.

THEY WANT TO LIVE IN TINY HOUSES.

11 NEWS MEGAN PRINGLE INTRODUCES YOU TO A WOMAN WHO IS CHALLENGING THE LAW SO SHE CAN MAKE HER DREAM HOME A REALITY.

MEGAN: THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE IDEAS LIZA ROWE HAS FOR THE DREAM HOME SHE WANTS TO BUILD.

>> I WOULD DEFINITELY WANT A FULL-SIZE KITCHEN.

MEGAN: BUT HER BIG PLANS ARE DESIGNED FOR SMALL LIVING.

REALLY SMALL >> IT WOULD BE A MINIMUM OF 200 SQUARE FEET, MAXIMUM OF 400 SQUARE FEET.

MEGAN: SHE'S PART OF THE TINY HOUSE MOVEMENT.

>> PEOPLE ARE FASCINATED BY THEM THEY ARE USUALLY ENTERTAINING THE IDEA, WHAT I BE ABLE TO DO THAT? NO I'M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE.

MEGAN: JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA, THIS IS HER BEDROOM.

WHAT SHE WANTS WOULD BE JUST ENOUGH SPACE FOR A MATTRESS.

HER ENTIRE DREAM HOME WOULD FIT IN THE LIVING ROOM OF HER RENTAL.

WE HAVE STAIRS HERE THAT WOULD GO TO A LOFT.

MEGA IT WOULD COST AROUND $50,000, SOMETHING SHE SAYS SHE COULD AFFORD.

THE BIG PROBLEM? IT'S ILLEGAL.

ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY ZONING BOARD DOESN'T HAVE ROOM FOR PINT SIZE PROPERTY, SOMETHING THAT LIZA HOPES TO CHANGE.

>> WE'RE WORKING ON GETTING A BILL DRAFTED AT THIS POINT BUT I WAS SPECIFIC THAT I WANT OFF GRID OPTIONS, ON WHEELS.

THAT WAY WE ARE NOT INVOLVING TOO MANY DIVISIONS OF THE COUNTY.

MEGAN: SHE SAYS IT WILL BE A LOT OF WORK.

BUT IT'S A START.

SHE'S WILLING TO TAKE IT ON IF IT GETS HER IN HER HOME.
