“Microhouse” open house this weekend

Posted by Meghan Walker on March 28th, 2012

Local architecture group Microhouse will host an open house this weekend to showcase their microhouse designs. Microhouses are small detached homes that share a lot with a primary residence. Sunday, April 1, Bruce Parker from Microhouse as well as Carlisle Classic Homes and ANR Landscape Design will be available to answer questions. The open house will be at 3448 36th Ave W (alley side) from 1 – 4 p.m.

Parker says the microhouses offer families a basic need: an ability to, “accommodate multi-generational living in a comfortable way that enables both proximity and a degree of separation.” He says that because they are a new construction, they can, “incorporate universal design features that will enable those with mobility impairments to live comfortably.” Parker adds that people who need more space, especially those accommodating extended family, will most benefit from having a microhouse on their property. Although, he says they also get calls from people who would like a place where they can live while renting out their main house.  To learn more about microhouses, or “backyard cottages,” visit the Microhouse site.

    Can I just say what a relief to find somebody that truly understands what they
    are talking about on the internet. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light
    and make it important. A lot more people must look
    at this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you are not more popular since you definitely have the gift.

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but,
    I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be
    interested in hearing. Either way, great site and
    I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here
    and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your
    theme? Exceptional work!

    I’ll be teaching a creative writing class this summer to a group of 11-14 year-olds. I have experience teaching writing (mostly poetry) to adults, but teaching kids will be new territory. Does anyone have some great tips, websites, resources for exercises, and reading materials for this age group? Thanks!.

    I have some videos that say “includes third party content” and others that say “blocked in some countries” (due to copyright).. Is it still possible for me to become a partner (considering I have all of the other requirements filled).
