This summer something very special is going on at the Grow Calgary site. They are hosting a Micro-home building competition. Throughout the summer 15-20 groups will be building their tiny houses and micro-houses at the Grow Calgary site. Check out the details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/165800534149911/
The organizers see how micro-homes and tiny houses could be solutions to homelessness and an array of other social issues. This competition will shed light of what is up and coming and how people should start to take a serious look at this option to house ourselves. GeoStudios is on the same page with a view towards creating entire communities of tiny & micro homes.
But the homeless will not be the driver behind this movement. There is a growing population of interested future (tiny house and micro-home) residents out there who want the benefits of off-grid, lower cost housing. GeoStudios is working towards our own solution for off grid living/camping with it’s 100 sq ft model “GS3” at Good Spirit Acres. After placement at their riverside campsite, the GS3 model will have the comforts of an RV without the expense. This unit will be rentable by the day or week. Schedule of prices and availability will be created in April Stay tuned to this FB page for more developments or go to www.geostudios.ca
It’s gonna be an interesting summer!
