First, I just have to say, Boneyard Studios is the coolest name ever!
Boneyard Studios was created in 2012 here:
“to demonstrate creative urban infill, promote the benefits of tiny houses, support other tiny house builders, and model what a tiny house community could look like.”
And they invite you to come look!
One day I would like to tour the community, but for now, I’m touring their site.
The community consists of three tiny houses constructed on wheels that range from 140-210 sq. ft., and one studio shed that is 288 sq. ft. The shed is being used as a workshop and common area, but it could be converted into a living space.
The project was created by:
- Lee Pera: Owner of the Pera House
- Jay Austin: Owner and designer of the Matchbox
- Brian Levy: Owner of the Minim House
This is not just a tiny house community; it’s a creative center that has offered tours of the houses and gardens, concerts, book readings, and bike-in theater. ~And all for free!
From a post on Aug. 19th, it looks like they have out-grown their space and are looking for another prospective DC space to inhabit. But they need help and people to contribute. Click here for more information about helping out. I think this is a wonderful idea for recreating those ugly, abandoned lots into beautiful, creative spaces and a worthy cause.
Their blog has more information about this project. The only question I had that wasn’t answered on the site (at least I couldn’t find it) was why they named it Boneyard Studios. Then I looked at the map and saw that they are next to the Glenwood Cemetery. Be still my heart!
When I visit, I’ll definitely have to add these angels to my collection. ; )
Until next time, stay small and prosper!
