PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Officials in Maine’s largest city are giving a property owner 30 days to move a pair of tiny houses they say are out of line with local land use codes.

Brent Adler planned to move tenants into the two small structures on Nov. 1. The little houses are on wheels and have about 400 square feet of living space each.

Adler is unsure of what to do with his nontraditional dwellings now. They are sitting on a lot in a densely populated part of the city featuring mostly multifamily housing, not far from City Hall.

He says he thought they would be allowed because they are basically recreational vehicles and he doesn’t think the city’s codes prohibit a person from parking RVs on land and renting them out.
