One thought on “Getting Involved

  1. Hello, I wish to let you know that I am an advocate of ADU’s of which I believe can benefit many people within the city of Ann Arbor. You might ask, just what is an ADU, well they are Accessory Dwelling Units, though Regardless of its physical form (backyard cottage, basement apartment, etc.), legally an ADU is part of the same property as the main home. It cannot be bought or sold separately, as a condominium or a dwelling on wheels might be.

    Though I would also like to bring to your attention of another aspect of living as well, because there is a Tiny House Workshop Scheduled within the city of Ann Arbor MI, for October 24-25, 2015 and these units also give the appearance and feel of a Home, though they are on wheels.

    While a former U of M Graduate of Architecture Meg Stephens was getting her Degree, Meg fell in love with them, and here is some of what she has to say, Do you dream of building your own tiny home, and simplifying your life but you’re not sure how or even where to start. Not to worry, now we can teach you.

    Meg has designed our newest model, the Linden, and is currently building one for herself and her husband to live in full time, and has scheduled a workshop. So I encourage you to check out Tumbleweed Tiny House on the internet and RSVP you spot Today at the Hilton Garden Inn Ann Arbor MI 48108
