COMMUNITIES - (potential)
We are working with local cities and counties to develop tiny house communities in the North Carolina foothills. These would be places where like-minded people can live an efficient lifestyle. Our plans are not for the packed-like-sardines trailer parks of years past, these communities will have larger lots, shared common areas and facilities, homeowner's associations, and in some cases even a storage unit for each homeowner. Please note that the following areas are only in the early planning stages. As of right now, zoning does not even allow movable tiny houses for permanent residence. We are working closely with the local officials on making these communities a reality so keep checking back and let us know if this sounds like something that might interest you. If you have immediate needs for a tiny house community, check Acony Bell in Mills River, NC.
Please note that at this time none of the cities below allow living in a movable tiny house. We are working with them toward developing tiny house subdivisions but at this time there is nothing in place. Please do not contact them regarding placing your mobile tiny house within their corporate limits for permanent occupancy. If you wish to build a tiny house on a foundation (like a traditional house,) you may contact us or the city planner to learn what requirements you must meet.
