Raleigh’s first tiny home village! 

The future of Raleigh’s real estate market is looking… small? Just a few months after Raleigh City Council approved the use of tiny homes in city limits, Raleigh-based company Nomad Nation announced its plans to build the city’s first tiny home village—aka a “cottage court”—at 708 Rock Quarry Road. A “place to stay for people who love to move” (hence the term nomad), the community will offer flexible housing (think futuristic, open-concept ~500-square-foot tiny homes, as well as a 3,000-square-foot community mansion designed as a co-living space), car sharing and bikes (the community is located right off the greenway trail). “Most people who want to come here to start a job and don’t know where to live, their only options are an expensive Airbnb or an even more expensive short-term lease they have to figure out how to sublease when they find a permanent home,” says Nomad founder and owner—and NC State alum!—Zach Milburn. This tiny home village will give locals who don’t want to be locked into long-term leases and those who are traveling through the area a more flexible and less expensive option. Raleigh will be the home of Nomad’s first tiny home community, but Milburn eventually wants to create a global network so “you can live wherever you want, whenever you want,” he says, adding: “We think Raleigh has the right ingredients to be the first location.” Seconded! nomadnation.co
