Idaho State Law: It’s ILLEGAL To Live In This Type of Structure
The cost of rent and/or a mortgage in 2022 in Idaho is sky-high, with no signs of coming back down to Earth any time soon.
Even worse, now you'll have to double-check that you're legally allowed to live in the structure you're planning on building!
There are all types of homes in Idaho. New construction, classic homes, trailers, homes made out of shipping containers, and everything else in between. As long as you have the correct paperwork, you're legally allowed to live in one of those types of edifices in Idaho. No worries.
However, there is one structure that we humans aren't allowed to call home in the state of Idaho.
Yes, we're serious, and yes, this is a real law.
If you were pondering building matching dog houses for you and your pooch to live in outside, don't. It's totally illegal.
Now, will authorities actually discover you living in a dog house and then force you to vacate the premises? We haven't heard any stories like that happening in the Gem State, but a law is a law, right?
A few other really random Idaho laws you may not be privy to:
- It's illegal to ride a motorcycle in Idaho Falls if you're over 88 years old
- It's illegal to buy onions after dark without a permit in Tamarack
- Across Idaho, it's illegal to hunt from a helicopter, even it it's not flying
So, maybe the dog house law isn't so bad after all. Either way, they're cold and drafty. You should probably just live in your house.
