Timber Trails' CEO, Thom Stanton, is now State Chapter Leader (Virginia) for the American Tiny House Association.

Thom will continue making inroads with local and state municipalities for making the accessibility of affordable housing more available by rethinking the requirements for and parameters surrounding small living structures. "Through a concerted effort, we hope to legalize the construction and habitation of smaller domiciles, including ADUs (accessory dwelling units), EDUs (efficiency dwelling units), and tiny houses on wheels (THOWs) currently deemed uninhabitable due to ever-increasing minimal code standards." 

Living in Richmond, the capital of Virginia, Thom's role supports the American Tiny House Association's mission and goal to promote the tiny house as a viable, formally acceptable dwelling option that supports tiny house enthusiasts seeking to incorporate creative and affordable housing as part of a more sustainable and self-reliant lifestyle. 

As State Chapter Leader for Virginia, Thom will:

  • Gather current zoning and coding regulations in Virginia, it's cities, and counties
  • Define guidelines and steps to take to promote change of zoning and coding regulations within local regions 
  • Recruit local volunteers to represent the cities/counties within the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Act as spokesperson for the Tiny House Movement
