"For example, since most tiny houses are built on steel trailers, they are required to be grounded to the trailer frames"

Business Insider has a couple of articles about how horrible tiny houses actually are. They are behind a paywall, but one thing that stood out [and was relevant to a mere office] was this:

They need to be strapped down in areas prone to strong winds.

Would a city inspector allow me to mount a surge protector and run an extension cable, like the friend suggested [and Mom thought was a good idea?]

How much would it cost to run electricity from the house? I would have the privilege of digging a trench?

I hate digging in Arizona!

Apparently this is the correct way to run power to a tiny house:
NOCO GCP1 15 Amp 125V AC Port Plug Power Inlet with 16-Inch Integrated Extension Cord

Or you could pay the same amount for this and run wires:
ParkPower 150BBIW.RV 15 Amp Power Inlet
