Additionally, we’re considerably interested in land areas within Morehead City, Newport, Beaufort, and Harkers Island (and other down east towns) where there are planned areas for people to put them after being built. This discussion can also center on the Bogue Banks communities of Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, Salter Path, Indian Beach, and Emerald Isle, and extend in to Cedar Point, Cape Carteret, Stella, Peletier, and Mill Creek.

Generally speaking, a tiny home is one that is under 400 square feet in size, but is built for spacious living and the modern needs of owners to include sleeping areas, kitchen, showers, patios, and more. The under 400 square feet size is particularly exciting to talk about considering our local area is currently seeing explosive population growth in recent years around military expansion and Interstate 42 prospects.

Furthermore, there is a movement around these homes by environmentally conscious people who value downsizing their living needs and who are living a minimalist life in hopes that it increases resources for others and nature.

With our NC County being a fixed size, and more and more people moving in to the area and visiting our beaches, we’re going to quickly run in to the problem of where to put all the housing to accommodate the new population. And, how do we do it in a way that respects our extremely fragile coastal habitats, marshlands, waterways, forests, and estuaries.

Considering the information above, where are some land areas in Morehead City, Newport, and Beaufort which are being developed to put tiny homes once they are built or purchased?

Currently in our NC county, are there any companies which are offering sales of these homes, or kits where people can build it themselves?

As a reader, do you value this concept over adding more housing and living areas by building vertically on to existing structures in the beach communities of Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, and Pine Knoll Shores?

As someone who is following this movement, and as someone who has a working knowledge of land use regulations and other county regulations around homes, what are some considerations to remember when building, transporting, or placing these homes on land owned, or within a community built for these structures?

For the environmentally vulnerable towns located down east from Harkers Island to Cedar Island, what value do these structures have over traditional homes in regards to protecting the highly fragile wetlands, waterways, marshlands, and islands which are very important to people who live off the land in these areas?

Are there any organizations or formal groups of people who help build these structures for people who have little knowledge of construction, or who may be physically unable to build it themselves?

What are some personal benefits to downsizing, or living the minimalist lifestyle for your family?

Do you foresee the federal government, State of North Carolina, or local municipalities offering economic and tax incentives to people who buy and live in these structures?

For Sale Information

Do you foresee new businesses opening up in this local area which will cater to people looking to buy and lease for sale homes?

    I own Tiny Homes Raleigh and am interested in building a community or individual tiny homes in Carteret county. We are doing cottage court projects in Raleigh and want to expand to the coast.

    Other than what you already touched on in the article:

    Pros: These homes can greatly help cities and towns economically deal with the homeless problem or for those in dire poverty.

    Cons: I worry about these structures during a hurricane or tropical storm which are becoming more frequent along our coast.
