A Massachusetts woman who had been living in a tiny house she built as a college student has abandoned the dwelling after voters rejected a proposal that would have made the home legal.

Voters at Hadley, Massachusetts’s annual town meeting decided against legalizing backyard cottages. The woman, an architecture studies student at Mount Holyoke College, had been living in her 190 sf home on a parcel owned by another homeowner for the past year.
