NEST Kinda Tiny House Event 20160829Help NEST kick-off our Kinda Tiny Houses Initiative with Kinda Tiny Bites, Live Music and Great Beer!  Join us Sunday, September 25th from 3:00-7:00PM at Urban Artifact – Northside’s outstanding craft brewery.  You’ll have a chance to view designs for NEST’s first Kinda Tiny Houses – undergoing rehab now on Fergus Street!

What is a Kinda Tiny House?  While the “tiny house movement” has caught fire across the country, these 100-500 square foot, mostly rolling homes aren’t for everyone.  NEST’s Kinda Tiny Houses will be “right-sized” at 600 – 1,000 square feet (and connected to sewer, water, gas and electricity). Suited to a range of audiences – baby boomers to millennials – they’ll fit buyers looking to downsize but stay in the neighborhood, or first-time home buyers targeting Northside on a budget. Built with a first floor bedroom and bathroom, each Kinda Tiny House also allows buyers the freedom to age in place while striving for full accessibility or, when infeasible given the existing home and site and budget constraints – maximum”visitability” – a measure of a place’s ease of access for people with disabilities.

NEST’s Kinda Tiny Houses will be rehabbed historic homes as well as some new-build structures, all providing an affordable, yet smaller option to buying/living in Northside. They will also help to ensure that our community maintains the economic diversity that makes Northside such a desirable place to live.

4100 Fergus - Open House FlyerNEST (Northsiders Engaged in Sustainable Transformation) is excited to announce an Open House this Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 pm.

The location is 4100 Fergus St. (corner of Fergus and Knowlton), smack dab in the middle of lots of neighborhood development!  NEST acquired 4100 Fergus through the City Land Use Re-utilization Program, to prevent the building from being torn down. Local developer 8K Partners joined with NEST in a successful effort to save this historic building, and later purchased 4100 Fergus for rehabilitation. Stop in Thursday to see the beautiful results and to learn more about NEST’s work throughout Northside!
