Brockville – An information session on tiny homes and secondary suites will be held on March 25th at Richard’s Coffeehouse in Brockville.
You have likely heard the buzz about tiny homes, simply put they are tiny homes filled with big ideas for maximum usage and storage at every nook and cranny.
Have you ever thought about living in a Tiny House?
Are you concerned about the lack of affordable housing in your community?
Do you know what a secondary unit is?
Are you aware of what the minimum square footage required for a single family home is?
Are you a developer, planner, member of a community support agency, local municipal politician, or an interested member of the general public?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you won’t want to miss this session. Come on out on Wednesday, March 25th and we will try to answer all of your questions!
In 2018, Terrilee Kelford, Chair of Cornerstone Landing Youth Services, Yeurgen Beck, Owner of Redwood Homes, Gordon Graff, architect, along with Algonquin College Perth Campus, partnered to build a tiny home for affordable housing for youth. At the same time, Terrilee started approaching local municipalities to address restrictive by-laws that prevented small affordable housing options like secondary units and tiny single family homes.
At this event, hosted by Leigh Bursey, Brockville City Councillor, Terrilee and Yeurgen will be available to talk about the work they have done to build a tiny home, address by-laws and encourage the creation of more affordable housing.
The event starts at 6pm with a 1 hour presentation and 1 hour Q & A period.
All are welcome!
