Eden Village: A Place To Call Home

In early March, the 31 tiny homes (about 405 square feet each) in Eden Village off Kornegay Avenue in Wilmington were expected to be ready for occupants potentially in a matter of weeks.
Organizers of the village, built to help the homeless and disabled find shelter, were awaiting certificates of occupancy to allow tenants to move in. Those sign-off documents were expected to come after a road needed for emergency vehicles was complete.
Each tiny home has a bedroom, bathroom and combination kitchen/living room, as well as a front porch.
The current Eden Village is limited to 31 homes, but the concept is expected to grow in the area.
“We wanted it small so everyone can know everyone in the community,” said Julia Manuel, the village’s community coordinator. “But we are looking for land to build two more Eden Villages and build an overnight campground.”
