California Tiny House, a builder of tiny homes in Fresno, has tripled in size. The company, led by the father and son team of Pat and Nick Mosley, started in a 2,000-square-foot industrial space in central Fresno two years ago.

The work space or bay, like a large garage, was big enough to build one tiny house with room for tools and some supplies. The company expanded six months ago into the space next door then added a third spot two months ago for a total of 6,000 square feet.

Two tiny homes can now be built simultaneously with room for storage, Pat Mosley said.

The company is working on its seventh tiny house and 10 more are on a waiting list.

In January, the city of Fresno passed an ordinance that would allow tiny homes to be used as independent living quarters on the same lot as a single-family house as long as they met some requirements. Fresno is believed to be one of the first communities nationwide to adopt the zoning code.
