CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Horry County is developing new rules to deal with a new trend - the building of tiny houses. The houses, sometimes built out of steel shipping containers, are generally about 1,000 square-feet or less.

Local media outlets report there is already a development of such homes in Horry County and more are expected as baby boomers downsize as their kids grow up and move away.

Back in September the county council voted that such homes should be restricted only to planned developments in the county.

During the next two months the county staff will draw up proposed regulations for tiny home communities.

The planners will consider rules for the sites for the homes, what infrastructure will be needed and how to incorporate sidewalks and park spaces in such communities.
