Outer Banks of NC - Considering building a “family compound” that consists of a 1BR/1BA small main house approx 700 sf, attached to a 2 car+ garage w/large utility. Above garage would be another two separate 1BR/1BA studio living spaces of about 300 sf ea, both including kitchenettes. The property would also have a totally separate ADU consisting of 1BR/1BA approx 600 sf to include full kitchen. This configuration is to accommodate our new family dynamics of a divorcing couple sharing the property, and planning for teenage son who can’t afford to buy/rent in our resort area (he can maintain privacy in one of the studios above garage, while the other studio serves as guest accommodations). Essentially, it would be four separate small 1BR/1BA units - two at 600ish sf with full kitchens, two at 300ish with kitchenettes. Before building, we are looking for input from real estate agents as to how successful this configuration may be for resale down the road. Thx for any input!

Even before building, would such a tiny multi-unit dwelling be permitted by the Zoning By-Law in that area ?

Sorry, should have mentioned... Yes, the Town of Kitty Hawk allows ADUs, and the living space above garage would be allowed so long as not stove and is attached to main. One studio would be attached to main via hall & stairs, but have another separate entry so could be closed off, so the main could technically be considered a 2 BR/2 BA. No HOA.

It sounds like you've already discussed the feasibility of getting such a Permit issued with your Zoning Administrator; which was wise.

You better plan on giving it to your kid because selling it will be a nightmare. The buyer pool for 4 one bedroom units is very, very small. If you do it out closer to the beach it might be viable as a b&b but check with the town.

When you are buying the land make sure getting this permit is a contingency. Do not rely on the word of the town employee on the phone.

Hello Ducksail,
Going by the parameters you have furnished, I think it is going to be a very small space, the construction is going to be congested, rest for a better idea, you can search for Licensed Home Inspector Near Me here- \

These units are only in the conception stage . . . . so hawking your home inspection services at this point might be a bit premature . . . . No ?
