Members of Lansing City Council took no action this week regarding what is referred to as a tiny home located on Kay Street. And this means the home will have to be moved under city code, according to the city administrator.

“The deadline to move it expired (Thursday),” City Administrator Tim Vandall said.

The owner will be receiving notice that the home will need to be removed within 10 business days.

The tiny home, which is located at 201 W. Kay St., reportedly has 499 square feet of living space and a 200 square-foot loft.

According to information prepared for the City Council, the home is considered a nuisance under city code and has to be removed.

Members of the Lansing City Council discussed the tiny home during an April 5 meeting. At that time, the owner, Misti Beer, was granted an extension until this past Thursday when council members discussed the issue again.

Vandall said the issue almost turned into a discussion about whether or not city officials approve of tiny homes. But Vandall said this is not what was at issue.

“It really has more to do more with zoning and sanitary sewer than the fact it is a tiny home,” he said.

He said the tiny home was placed on a lot that already has a separate residential dwelling. He said the owners also were attempting to have two homes tapped into one septic tank.

According to information prepared for the City Council, the home also was brought into the city without a required building permit.
