This is a summary of tiny beach houses for sale in North Carolina that includes foreclosures and short sales. These tiny beach houses are often referred to as "Cottages"  Carolina Beach homes locally in fact they are essentially a synonym and because tiny houses are a trend in the United States-- somewhat of a fad. It is showing out in the searches for North Carolina oceanfront homes for sale. So what makes a home a tiny house well that's a bit subjective as well and varies from person to person I would say a tiny house is comprised of a home with 1200 square feet or less that is on the beach of North Carolina. Usually these homes are older homes from the 1950s 60s and 70s ,and they are referred to as Beach cottages. They are Rife with charm and retro and they can be downright ugly or downright Charming depending on when they were updated and renovated. Okay I admit it; these homes are supposed to be 800 sq ft or less. However those are very rare.  But there is a regular supply of beach front or ocean view or second row beach homes under 1000 square feet.

One thing's for sure these tiny beach houses are sturdy; most of them have weathered a number of hurricanes.

Now however new beach homes have very high standards of construction and are very fortified and do have their advantages compared to homes built in the previous 30 years. There is a big Romanticism for these tiny beach houses and one of the practicalities of them is they are easy to clean because the square footage is so small and therefore the costs are lower than larger houses.
