It Takes a Village~Washington DC~The Boneyard

First, I just have to say, Boneyard Studios is the coolest name ever!

Boneyard Studios was created in 2012 here:

Here’s how to get there.
“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:

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!

Angels~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!
