Introducing East Coast Tiny Homes

Last year at the April 2013 workshop which was hosted at my house in Wilmington, North Carolina I had the pleasure of meeting Graham. He’s a great guy based out of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, a small town in the Outer Banks.

He shared with me back then that he planned to start his own tiny house building company. Now, almost a year later he has built his first tiny house which is currently for sale and also launched his own tiny house building company called East Coast Tiny Homes.

In the past year or so, North Carolina has become somewhat of a hot bed for tiny houses here on the east coast with several new building companies being launched as well as a good amount of tiny house dwellers.

Graham’s first tiny house is a beauty of a home that is mounted on a trailer and has a 160 square feet footprint. The home literally has every amenity you’ll find in a regular-sized home. It also has cutouts in the ceiling and the floor that allow for additional storage that otherwise wouldn’t exist. Nice touch.

The Inaugural, East Coast Tiny Homes’ first tiny house built. You can see more photos of The Inaugural here.

Please take a moment to checkout East Coast Tiny Homes on Facebook and follow their progress. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more tiny homes from Graham and crew in the near future!

    I usually try to be positive in these posts because that is the kind of person I am. However, I am afraid I can’t be positive about this house. I live in NC, not far from Wilmington, a place of history and beautiful unique historical homes. What a design treasure from which to draw. I have also lived in the suburbs of Raleigh, NC, in a cookie cutter neighborhood where the houses are little more than boxes with roofs, completely void of character, charm, nooks and crannies, beauty and warmth. This house reflects that hurried throw-up-a-house quick mentality. It looks like a boring box, and the inside is little more than an alleyway with stuff lined up along the sides, boringly lined up. And what about the loft!? Walking into a tiny house and looking up into the loft is one of the ambience pleasures of living in a tiny house. I don’t want it blocked off from view, and especially not with an atrocious pull down ladder the only way to access it. My grandkids love sitting at the edge of the loft, dangling their feet, while taking part in the conversion below. This house needs to go back to the factory and find its spirit. It is about more than just having an efficient, everything within reach, plain jane surrounding. Until a builder understands that, he (or she) should not be putting these empty lifeless boxes out there for sale. I am sorry, but someone had to say it.

    Pull down attic stairs are fine for lofts if you plan to use the space for storage rather than sleeping. I prefer stairs due to health. I like privacy but not so much I can’t see what is going on downstairs. Open spaces allow better heat circulation in winter. Windows that open help control temperature and reduce that ‘closed in’ feeling.

    I like storage space under small refrigerators so items are at easy height to reach. Too much counter space reduces the walkway and hurts the backside when bending.

    We all have our ideas of what works best for US. As the builder designs more models he can incorporate some of the storage ideas and leave other ideas in a different model. Variety helps give buyers choice and thus encourages sales. Be willing to delete some ideas to allow for more ‘room to walk and breathe’ and enjoy the ‘open space’.

    A pity you are relying upon Facebook since I consider that piece of voyeur crap site exactly what the small home movement is trying to move away from. I refuse to view what you have to offer if it is published on Facebook.

      Whoever Mr. Mestengo is does not have a clue as to what the small home movement is about, as it has nothing to do with being on FB or not. FB is a great tool to use for business. I have been in business for 20 years as a natural healer and this is the age of the computer. paperless, spaceless communication! step up to the 21st century with the rest of us Mister. We can be green and use computers.
