Make Your Lake-Living Dream a Reality at Tiny Home II of Lake Norman

What are Tiny Homes?

The legal term for these small homes of fewer than 400 square feet is RV Park Model. They are essentially a recreational vehicle sold with a title of origin and are considered personal property, like a vehicle. These micro dwellings are built on a metal frame with wheels for movability, although most are treated as permanent dwellings with the wheels removed or hidden by attractive underpinning and landscaping. 

What is the Tiny Home Movement?

The tiny home trend is centered on the countercultural idea that “the greatest wealth is to live content with little” (Plato). People from all walks of life are taking advantage of this affordable downsizing option for a variety of reasons: 1) a primary home for those who adhere to a minimalist, eco-conscious aspect of living; 2) a personal vacation home where maintenance is low and time spent outdoors is high; and 3) a rental property for individuals desiring additional income to enhance their investment portfolio. 

Who Lives in Tiny Homes?

Originally associated with younger generations in response to worsening housing affordability and environmental concerns, there is a growing uptick among baby boomers seeking to sell their 2,000+-square-foot family home in exchange for a much smaller dwelling. A large-scale study revealed that 40% of tiny homeowners are over 50, and 55% of those owners are women (Forbes). And, as more seniors are aging-in-place, tiny homes provide a budget-friendly, independent living option. 

Top 3 Reasons to Invest in a Tiny Home (there are so many reasons!)

  • Cost-Efficient – smaller size, less money – avoid larger mortgage/mortgage-free/build up savings
  • Energy-Efficient – less square footage, less energy used/consumption of fewer resources
  • Space-Efficient – less stuff, less waste – less to clean/more time for activities/nature

Tiny Homes II of Lake Norman 

Privately owned by Jim Davidson, this gated community is located at 6738 NC-150 B, Sherrills Ford and boasts 75 home sites situated on 8.5 acres, all with incredible locations and scenery. Presently, 60 tiny homes are on the property with plans to fill the remaining 15 sites by the end of 2024. Each of the (approximately) 399-square-foot tiny homes offers one or two bedrooms (with a loft option), a full bathroom, fireplace, front porch and/or a deck, and a kitchen with full-sized appliances, just to name a few of the included features. The number of amenities on the property is impressive, too! Resort owners and guests have free and full access to the brand-new swimming pool, pickle ball court (end of summer, 2024), 3,500-foot lakefront deck and pavilion, mini-movie theater, lakeview exercise room, boat ramp, fire pits, barbeque grills, 350-foot boardwalk, pet park, bathhouse with private showers and a laundry facility. For those who enjoy time on the lake, kayaks, paddleboards, peddleboats, jon boat and fishing are all free. Pontoon and wet boat slip rentals are available, as well. 

Buying at Tiny Homes II of Lake Norman

There is no better time to buy in this highly desirable tiny home community than now! With a number of stylish models and floor plans to choose from, and the capability to upfit with desired amenities and color selections (cabinets, granite, countertop, kitchen backsplash, flooring, paint and trim), owning a home on Lake Norman is within reach. Existing one-bedroom, two-bedroom and one-bedroom w/loft lakeview homes cost $124,900 and a one-bedroom home on the lakefront is $179,900. Jim Davidson makes the process for purchasing a new home easy: 1) buyers pick out the desired model; 2) manufacturer builds it to specifications (1-3 months) while the site is prepared – water, sewer or septic, and power; and 3) home is delivered and ready for owner occupancy. “If future buyers desire to lease a lot at the resort, sites are move-in ready with some units already set up for purchase. We set up the unit and underpin, so it looks finished, with lease terms of five years,” Davidson shares. Many of the cabins presently used as rentals are available for purchase. As Jim states, “With these move-in ready tiny homes, everything you need is already there – all you need to bring is your clothes!” Enjoy a three-minute video of this one-of-a-kind resort property at
