Charlotte's First Tiny House Community: Key Park West

Have you been following all the talk and news about Tiny Houses that seems to have sprung up recently? It seems to be every where these days, including shows devoted to tiny house living on HGTV. It will be interesting to watch where this trend goes in the coming years, which has now arrived in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Charlotte's very first tiny house community -- Keyo Park West -- is springing up in northwest Charlotte's Coulwood neighborhood.  Developer/builder, Kelvin Young, is building 56 homes on 20 acres. Prices start at $89,995 for a lot with a one-bedroom, one-bathroom 493-square foot home. Home sizes will range between 498 and 1,000 square feet. Each Keyo Park West Tiny Home will be designed by the buyer in consultation with a Keyo designer and will offer numerous custom finishes which buyers can select from, including:

 15+ choices of tile mostly imported from Italy.

6 choices of real wood soft close cabinets.

 20+ choices of granite.

14 eco-friendly hardwood floor staines.

Over 100 eco-friendly interior and exterior paint choices.

Fiber cement board and masonry exterior choices


Currently, two lots are available for sale with more to be released in early 2018. A $4,000 non-refundable Design/Lot fee will reserve a tiny house.
