HADLEY, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who has been living in a tiny house she built as a college student is leaving town after voters rejected a proposal that would have made her dwelling legal.
The Republican of Springfield reports (http://bit.ly/24yD0fb ) voters at a town meeting in Hadley on Thursday decided not to legalize backyard cottages.
Sarah Hastings has been living in her 190-square-foot home on a parcel owned by another couple for the last year. She built the home while she was an architecture studies student at Mount Holyoke College.
