A nail house is a neologism for homes belonging to people who refuse to make room for development. The term, a pun coined by developers, refers to nails that are stuck in wood, and cannot be pounded down with a hammer.

Every couple of years, these defiant nail houses make the rounds online. They serve as a symbolic testament to the 'little guy' standing up against the government and pushy developers.
