Kristie Wolfe builds underground home & sets rural WA hamlet
 
25:37
Inspired by the success of the Hawaii treehouse she built for $11,000, Kristie Wolfe began searching for land to build a “Hobbit”-inspired village. Knowing that there is land to be found for cheap in this country (she bought her Hawaii property for $8000), she began to search the Northwest for sites. https://faircompanies.com/videos/building-your-own-hawaii-minimal-house-for-a-vacations-cost/ “There’s a lot of land everywhere, if you look on craigslist, if you look on zillow, you can find property so it’s not really that there’s not a lot. The issue is with property that’s in my price range- I’m looking for property that’s $10,000 to 20,000- usually there’s a reason why it’s cheap, it’s either an easement problem or you have to drive through a crappy neighborhood… but if you’re wanting to be off-grid, it opens up a whole world of selections, there’s a ton out there.” Wolfe paid $18,000 for 5 acres on a hillside above Lake Chelan, Washington. Being a couple miles down a dirt road, there was no option to be on the grid so Wolfe put in a solar panel, septic and a water tank (filled by truck for now) and began to dig the first of her underground homes. At 288 square feet, Wolfe’s “tiny house in the shire” was over the maximum square footage allowed for an un-permitted build so she went to the county for approval. With only hand-sketched plans on graph paper, she was able to get a permit. The structure went up in a few days “with a lot of help from family and friends” and it was “wrapped and roofed” in a few weeks and then Wolfe finished the interior on her own. Inspired by the “Hobbit” books, films and cartoon (from 1977), Wolfe wanted to recreate the cozy feel of a hobbit hole. "Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort." Rather than buying expensive custom details, Wolfe got creative. She used the top of an old cable spool - scavenged for free long before the build- as a round door. To create round windows, she hid secondhand ($10) square windows behind repurposed circular mirror frames. For a very unique cordwood floor, she cut scraps of wood (found beside the road and old firewood) into into one-inch-thick pieces glued down with a heavy construction adhesive and grouted by hand (again thanks much help to friends and family). Wolfe has broken ground on the 2nd and 3rd hillside homes. She doesn't plan to change much of her design except to make the windows larger. The completed “village” will include an above-ground communal kitchen built to look like a thatched-roof English-style pub.

How To Build a Level Shed, tiny houses, barn foundation, platform by Jon Peters
 
12:12
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Art-Home-by-Jon-Peters/312021729836 Website: http://jonpeters.com/ I'm building a new storage shed for my lawn mower and gardening tools. I've noticed that most sheds tend to rot from the bottom up and are often home to ground hogs and skunks. Because of these issues I'm taking a little more time and effort to prevent that from happening to this shed by building a solid base and level foundation. Hope you find this video helpful

20 Most Luxurious Dog Houses
 
07:45
Everyone loves their dog, but some people take it to the extreme. Here are 20 of the world's most luxurious dog houses. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #10 - The Standard Home This dog house is anything but standard. It features multiple windows, 60 square feet of space inside, air conditioning and a front porch light with its own dog controlled switch. The porch is made to replicate the owner’s, complete with flower pots on either side of the porch. It cost the owners $7,200 to make their dog house feel like a home. #9 - Home on the Ranch This ranch style dog house is complete with its very own doggie swimming pool. The house has stone siding and bone decorations on the storm shutters, inside the same level of craftsmanship is used with the wooden floors, dog decals along the wallpaper, custom dog beds, and air conditioning. With the addition of the pool, this model will cost you $7,500. #8 - Complete With a Hot Tub After some searching, we found this cabin style dog house on the Weather King’s website. The company that makes these spectacular dog houses is called J.C. Metal Building Sales. They first started by creating storage sheds, barns and lofted cabins. The are stationed in Deland, Florida and now make some of the best dog houses you could create. Each house can be customized with energy saving materials, AC, and other amenities. This model simply says price upon request, but since there are a deck and a hot tub, we think this pad is probably too pricey for our budget. #7 - A Georgetown Home Another great find from the world renowned artists at Beyond the Crate is the Georgetown dog house. The home is modeled after the homes in Georgetown. The amenities in this house are running water, heat, air conditioning, and lights. This one is slightly cheaper than other models with its price tag starting at only $10,000. #6 - The Victorian This Victorian style dog house is spacious enough for three or four dogs to roam and have plenty of room. This dog house is a replica of the owner’s larger Victorian mansion. The owner commissioned the project after a large owl almost carried off one of her Pomeranians. The entire unit cost her a cool $20,000, but it is large enough for her to hangout as well. #5 - The Brick Mansion This brick mansion design dog house is also completely customizable. The minds at Beyond the Crate are the proud designers of this luxurious piece. It has amenities like running water, lights, heat, and air conditioning. Living in the lap of luxury does cost a pretty penny, this model’s price tag starts at $25,000. #4 - California Hills Living Beyond the Crate is the designer genius behind this extravagant home. It is called the Celebrity Hacienda Dog House and is modeled after some of the celebrity homes in the hills of California. This house is custom made with many different features to choose from such as running water, lights and air conditioning. The price reflects the different amenities you’ve had added, but this Californian mansion starts at $30,000. #3 - The Taj Mahal This fancy dog house was clearly modeled after the famous palace, the Taj Mahal. It sets you back $40,000 but giving man’s best friend the very best is the only thing on most pet owners’ minds, even if it costs a fortune. #2 - Paris Hilton’s Dog House Everyone knows this heiress gets exactly what she wants, including the most extravagant dog house for her many pups. The dogs reside in a two-story Italian style villa completed with roof tiles and wrought iron railings on the second-floor balcony. Inside you’ll find multiple dog beds, food and water stations, heat and air conditioning. Outside they have their own little fenced in yard complete with a tree to do their business. Money is certainly not something Paris worries about, which is probably why this dog mansion cost $325,000, she spared no expense. #1 - Living in Luxury Each and every one of these dog houses is luxurious and pricey beyond compare. This dog house, however, takes the cake as being the most expensive dog house in the world. It was commissioned by a surgeon in England back in the beginning of 2008. It is for her two Great Danes and costs just over $417,000. It includes everything you could image from sheepskin-lined, temperature-controlled beds, a 52-inch plasma screen tv, a $250,000 sound system to automatic dispensers, a saline treatment spa bath, and a retina scanner to keep out the common riff-raff.

Building Amazing Homes & Mobile Spaces Using Shipping Containers!
 
06:32
In this video we explore and learn how to use shipping containers as strong, durable and mobile building blocks to create amazing structures of all kinds, like a house, addition, office space, or cabin; and we feature a few stunning projects to get you inspired! Anthony Ruggiero from Storstac Inc. (http://www.storstac.com/) showed us around their yard in Toronto, Ontario and took the time to teach us about the ins and outs of building with shipping containers. We're excited to share the tips and information we learned with you. Shipping containers come in standard 20 foot and 40 foot lengths, and there are other specialty custom sizes like the 10', 45', 48', 53' long containers. Almost all shipping containers are made in China, and can be bought used (after they've been used for 10-20 years), or new, which means they've one been used once. Since there are no shipping manifests for used containers to show what was transported in them over the course of their lifetime (it could be anything from clothes to nuclear waste), it's better to build with a new shipping container that's only been used once. They're made with COR-TEN steel, which is a weathering steel that can withstand harsh weather conditions and elements like salt water because the rust on weathering steel creates a protective patina to keep it strong, whereas rust on mild steel would actually weaken the metal. While building with shipping containers is not necessarily cheaper than conventional building, it does have advantages because the containers are modular, movable and mobile, durable, and have a unique, modern look. They can be do it yourself friendly if you've worked with steel before, or if you find a company to take care of the steel work for you so you can focus on how to frame it and finish it from the inside. Let us know what you think of shipping containers as alternative building blocks in the comments!

Inside Zedd's $16 Million Mansion That Has a Skittles Machine | Open Door | Architectural Digest
 
09:15
In this episode of Open Door, Grammy-winning record producer and DJ Zedd gives an in-depth tour of his $16 million mansion in Benedict Canyon, an area of Los Angeles that's near Sherman Oaks and northwest of Beverly Hills. Zedd's self-decorated home is 9,500 square feet with views of the canyon and tons of full-length glass windows. The house is structured into three sections: work, living, and sleep. The work section has Zedd's recording studio and an unfinished gym. The driveway leads into the front entrance, which crosses a moat. A huge wall with cubbies holds art, awards, and silly memorabilia. For instance, Zedd's Grammy sits next to a poop emoji. At the end of a corridor, before going outside, guests can pick their favorite flavor of the rainbow from the Skittles machine. Zedd also has a server room and a "Costco Room" that contains just about anything he would need if he weren't able to leave the house for a long time. The bathrooms feature automated blinds that can sometimes surprise the person taking the shower early in the morning. The remote-controlled curtains in Zedd's bedroom make him the happiest of any feature in the house. Outside, the pool has a hidden jacuzzi / hot tub that's revealed when the pool's water level drops. The kitchen has four built-in hibachi grills, a pot filler above the stovetop (which Zedd says is the reason he bought the house), and built-in vacuums.

Log Cabin Build: You Can Do This Too
 
25:03
I install the upper course of logs on the walls of the log cabin and 6"x6" hemlock timbers to hold the upper floor. The log cabin is taking shape as I complete one log gable end and start the second one. Autumn is setting in, the trees are turning and the animals are on the move with animal tracks all over the trail and deer, sandhill cranes and geese in the fields. In the second half, I talk about my physical and mental limitations and why you too can build a log cabin or do others things beyond your self imposed limitations. I prepare prime rib and potatoes for dinner on the campfire, sleep on the floor of the log cabin and get up early to go after geese for the freezer. #logcabin #build #shelter

HOW TO BUILD ALL NATURAL POND WITHOUT LINER |LOW COST+MAINTENANCE |BIG BACK YARD WATER LAKE HABITAT
 
04:03
POND EQUIPMENT: http://amzn.to/2qPFpjZ SHOVELS: https://amzn.to/2JeVpFY TOOL SETS: https://amzn.to/2ImycAz PATIO, LAWN & GARDEN STUFF: https://amzn.to/2GMUluL In this video i show you how i turned a water pit into an all natural pond without pond liner. This pond requires very low maintenance but some local conditions have to be met for it to function. Thank you for watching, feel free to subscribe or comment if you have questions. hi there, I'm Carl the landscape guy and today I want to show you how I converted this back yard water pit into a 3000 square foot all natural pond. Now in a pond you want to try to keep the water level as constant as possible. The water level in this pit was fluctuating by about 2 to 3 feet depending on the weather. Rainwater would fill it up, especially during the winter months and during a hot summer there wasn't much water left in there. This situation was really unsightly especially since the main line of sight in this back yard is right on the water pit. In order to minimize the water level fluctuation, I started by connecting the pit to the closest rain water ditch. For that i used about 250 feet of pvc drainage piping, 6 inches in diameter. The pipes were installed on a slope that way the water from the ditch would flow into the pit. I chose only a small slope for the piping so that if the pond is filled up, water can flow backwards into the ditch not overflowing the pond. In addition to that, I connected the rain gutters of the house to the pipe to use existing water as efficient as possible. After these preliminary works I started cutting off all the grass, bushes and little trees about 15 feet around the edges of the pit. Now I could start re-modeling the new pond edges. Since no pond liner is used and all water in the pond will be rain or ground water there will still be small water level fluctuations. That's why I took away the sloping terrain and created a steeper edge. With this relatively steep edge even if the water level fluctuates the water surface will stay about the same. With this 2 ton excavator it took me one day to finish the pond edges. The pond has a depth of about 6 feet. An all natural non liner pond only works on sites with fine soil like clay or loam which has a low co-efficiency of permeability or it also works if you have a high ground water level. Natural wells or brooks around a backyard make a perfect supply for natural ponds. Now it's time to flatten the soil around the pond and plant the first water plants. If you don't want to spend money on water plants you can go to local lakes or rivers to get regional plants you like. If you do so don't destroy natural wildlife habitat. Take only small plant offshoots, they will spread in their new habitat. If you want to put fish in your natural pond that's ok but wait until plants have grown and don't put too many fish in. Since it's a natural pond I didn't add any pumps and filters and I put in about 10 fish. If you feed the fish keep in mind that all nutrients put into the water will have to be clarified by the pond itself. If you add too many nutrients, algae will grow and the fish might suffer. I decided to add a few Stones and one bigger tree stump from the woods with moss on it. This use of regional materials helps to create an all natural character of the pond and improves its appearance. It helps to add only one or two eye catchers, otherwise your eye doesn't know where to look and it doesn't have the effect of creating a harmonic atmosphere . With this pond we look at a low maintenance level. Each fall I cut the grass and plants around the edges and that's about it. I hope this video was informative and helpful for you. If so I would appreciate a "thumbs up". Feel free to subscribe for more videos on ponds, brooks, waterfalls and other garden stuff.

Primitive Technology: Termite clay kiln & pottery
 
11:27
I built this pottery kiln and some pottery from termite mound clay to test an alternative clay source to my usual one from the creek bank. I started by making a large grate from ordinary clay. It was just under 50 cm in diameter. Next, I took dry chunks of termite nest and put them into the pit in front of the tiled roof hut. The chunks were crushed and water was added to slake the clay. The clay was trodden on to mix it. Dead palm fronds were added to the clay to stop it from cracking as it dried and to add insulation to the kiln. The mixture was trodden on again and then taken from the pit. A trench was dug to form the firebox of the kiln and a wall of clay was made in the front of the trench. A hole was dug into the wall to allow air flow into the firebox. The grate was placed on top of the firebox and the walls of the ware chamber were built around the grate. When the kiln walls were finished, grate bars made from termite clay were placed into the firebox. Grate bars are important for fireboxes as they lift the firewood off the ground allowing air to move up through the fuel bed for more efficient combustion. Burning wood as a heap on the ground allows cold air to flow up and over the coals, cooling the kiln and leaving the air unreacted with the fire wood. It still works but is much less efficient than using grate bars. The finished kiln was 50 cm tall (above grate height), 50 cm in diameter and with walls about 12.5 cm thick. The pit/firebox was about 25 cm deep and 25 cm wide with grate bars sitting half way between the ground and the circular kiln grate above. Next, for the pottery clay, I selected a termite mound built on red clay soil. I took it to the kiln area and slaked it with water and mixed it in a small pit. I crushed up an old grate from a previous kiln and mixed it into the termite clay as grog. Grog prevents pottery from cracking as it dries and helps prevent breakage when firing. I then shaped the clay into a small urn. I also made some barrel roof tiles and a smaller pot from termite clay. I then stacked the kiln with the termite pottery. To fire the pottery, I collected a large pile of dead wood and started a fire in the firebox. I heard some explosions in the kiln early on and knew something broke but continued anyway. Within an hour the kiln had heated up well and the pottery was glowing red hot. By the second hour the temperature went down illustrating an important point: if you over fill the firebox with wood the kiln will choke it and not burn efficiently. Realising this mistake I merely let the wood burn down a little so more air could get through. By 2 hours and 30 minutes the kiln was firing nicely again with all the pottery glowing low orange (about 845 c or 1550 f). I kept it at this low firing temperature for another 30 minutes. The whole firing process took about 3 hours from start to finish, a relatively short period of time for firing pottery. When I took the pottery out, one tile had broken and the urn had spalled (a piece of the outer pot broke off) possibly due to still having moisture in it. The urn was still useable though and I use it to water the cassava patch. The forge blower was well fired and is now immune to water damage, no longer needing to be carefully protected from the rain. I put it in the barrel tile shed for storage. I put the broken tile and spalled piece from the urn in a special heap of broken pottery. When I make pottery in future I can crush up these broken pots and mix it into the new clay as grog to strengthen the new ceramic items. Finally, I stored the good tiles at the barrel tiled hut as replacements for broken tiles in that structure should there be any damage in future. Termite clay is good material for making furnaces and an OK substitute for good pottery clay should it be difficult to find a better source. The termites have already processed the clay by the fact that their mouths are too small to include sticks and pebbles into their structures. As a result, the clay is very smooth and plastic. Too smooth for my liking, in fact, I’m used to working with coarser clay that has silt mixed into it naturally. I find that termite clay is either too runny when wet or cracks too easily when drier. It was difficult to form into complex shapes and it took me 2 attempts to make the urn. But for forming objects like tiles it’s OK, it can be pressed into shape and it will hold without difficulty. In future, I’d be likely to use termite clay for mass producing formed objects such as bricks, tiles, simple pots (formed over a mould) and possibly pipes, thereby conserving the dwindling clay supply from the creek bank which I’ll save for more intricate pottery. In summary, termite clay is able to be used to produce basic pottery if no other source can be found. If you have a termite nest you can make basic pottery from it.

Shipping Container As An Underground Shelter
 
04:13
Final attempt to record building of an underground shelter using a 20 ft. shipping container. For those wondering why I didn't simply pile dirt over it without pouring a concrete cap first..... These containers are mostly sheet metal. Heavy duty as it is, the roof and sides will push inwards from the weight. Eventually the metal will rust through and you'll be buried alive. My way will insure it is still there a few hundred years from now. Problem is, you'd better keep an eye on your sump pump. If it goes bad or loses power, you'll go in one day and find it the whole thing flooded. A surface alarm letting you know the water level is above where it should be isn't a bad idea. Putting the sump pump on a UPS is also a good thing.

6 rooms into 1: morphing apartment packs 1100 sq ft into 420
 
19:54
In 2010, we met Graham Hill- the founder of treehugger.com and a serial entrepreneur. He had just bought two tiny apartments in a century-old tenement building in Soho and he had plans to turn them into laboratories, and showcases, for tiny living. He'd spent most of the past year living in tiny spaces- "a tiny trailer, a tent, and then a boat" and he was convinced others would love it as much if small spaces could be designed right. He wanted a tiny space that didn't sacrifice function, but instead that would expand to provide a wish list including dinner parties for 12, accommodations for 2 overnight guests, a home office and a home theater with digital projector. Not wanting to limit himself to local architects, he crowdsourced the design as a competition and received 300 entries from all over the world. Two Romanian architecture students won with their design "One Size Fits All". Completed in 2012, his LifeEdited apartment doesn't resemble the cramped space we saw in 2010. Today the 420-square-foot space can be expanded to include the functionality of 1,100 square feet: walls, drawers and beds move and unfold to create 6 rooms: living room, dining room, office, guest office, master bedroom and guest bedroom. If you include the kitchen and the bathroom which morphs into a phone booth or meditation room, the apartment includes 10 total rooms.

The vertical challenge – how to build innovative and sustainable family homes on a steep terrain   F
 
02:18
THE URBAN SPACE: The area lies on a hillside between the areas of Hjallavegur and Blikagøta, with a total size of 45.000 square meters. The area is uninhabited and no construction preparation has been done. The space is open, green and with steep terrain – there are no buildings, no roads or trees. The area is used by local small farmers for sheep grazing. Each cadastre is enclosed and some of them have a very small byre. THE URBAN CHALLENGE: The goal is to establish a residential neighbourhood without large incisions in the terrain, but to build smaller homes that are adapted to the landscape and allow for urban farming. Location: Hillside, Runavík, Faroe Islands (map) Project Owner: Municipality of Runavík Project Manager: Janus Trúgvason Engineer, Technical Division, Municipality of Runavík E-mail: janus@runavik.fo Competition Portal: http://nbccrunavik.com/

We invite you to visit our communities and see how our Bellago Homes stand apart from the anonymous homes built by the giant national builders. INTELLIGENT AND PROFESSIONAL DESIGNS As second and third generation home builders here in the the Valley of the Sun, We learned how to build quality from the foundation to the roof, and we’ve also learned the importance of starting with great designs and just what details are important to make a home truly special! We hire professional designers who are considered some of the best in their field as consultants and we also tap our years of vast experience in design and construction. We realize that our customers are trusting us with one of their biggest investments. With that in mind, we spend an enormous amount of our time in the planning of each home, so that we can insure that our customers can enjoy their investment to its fullest capacity for years to come. We… value-engineer our homes to put our customers’ money where it counts; in energy efficiency, in aesthetic details that really show, and into true craftsmanship. ensure that the layout of each home has a natural separation of the master bedroom from the other bedrooms. make sure each plan has intelligent places to entertain and that the basic layouts really work. ensure that we add touches of grandeur. These include grand showers, free standing tubs, kitchens next to glass walls, fixtures not offered at other places, large master closets and elevations not seen before. If you are wondering why people stop and stare at our homes, it is because our homes are just full of great detail and beautiful architecture! LOCAL HOME BUILDER bellago-homes-phoenix-builder-2We have been building some of the best built homes in the Valley of the Sun for almost three decades. Bellago Homes builds one home at a time. We don’t want to be one of the biggest builders, just one of the best. If you are looking for a local builder who is really into providing great detail in a home, then we might just be your fit. After all, we spend most of our waking moments just thinking about how we can make our homes look and feel better! DELIVERING EXCELLENCE As young apprentices, decades ago, working on custom homes, we noticed how some custom homes just looked much better than others. We studied just what made some custom homes look and feel much better. We found that the key factor was the builders’ experience of having at some point worked in the trades. The builders who had once worked as tradesman really understood how homes should be put together, and that makes all the difference. We have put in the time and have this same experience as previous trade contractors. We have that experience and we think that explains our vision of how to build homes that are more beautiful and of higher quality than most others. We know these are bold statements. Come and see for yourself! We are delivering some of the best design and built homes being done right now in Arizona. We are very good at what we do and we are really passionate about building really beautiful homes!

Stacked cargo containers in New Haven's "LEGO" apartments
 
14:53
Christian Salvati of Marengo Structures thinks shipping containers make great building blocks, and in time, he hopes it will become an affordable and quick method of building homes. As full-scale R&D, in 2012, he built Connecticut’s first shipping container homes: a two-story duplex built from six containers. Two years later, he stacked higher using 27 containers to build a 6-unit apartment complex he hopes to rent to students in the New Haven area (the building is wedged between Yale and University of New Haven). While containers are uniform, modular and easily sourced (Salivati buys from a depot in Newark, NJ), the building process is still slower and more expensive than it should be given the lack of codes for this type of building. Salvati thinks that by sharing information, architects and builders can help improve both zoning issues and the currently steep learning curve that prevents containers from becoming a more universal modular alternative.

Wire Tree Tutorial – Model Railroad
 
11:44
Building fantastic looking and very realistic trees from scratch doesn’t have to be hard and I’ll show you just how easy it really is. This tree will look fantastic on any model railroad, war gaming terrain or a display diorama and it will add life to any layout. Follow along as I step you through the process I use to create this great looking apple tree. The great part is you can still manipulate the tree to change its shape even after you’ve completed it. It’s a time consuming process but the results are well worth the time and effort. This particular tree is in HO scale, the wire I used scales down well to N scale and it’s simple to use thicker gauge wire to model in the larger scales.

Dentist Practice Gants Hill
 
01:16
Planning Permission granted in February 2012. Now we are looking forward to realise this little project! MISSION IMPOSSIBLE! On a site of just approx. 48m2 (!) situated on the north/east corner of Clarence Avenue/Gants Hill we are trying to achieve planning approval for a small dentist practice building. The site of approx. 13.30m x 3.60m is very restricted and currently in a very desolate state. Every new possible development would enhance the area again. The council is very 'strict' and not supporting more than 1 storey or other materials than classical brick or render. Wall opening to the sides (partywalls) are not possible. The internal light issues will be solved via light well to the rear and roof lights.The proposed pitched roof is in line with the existing residential building line at Clarence Road and provides electrical opening roof lights. The front and entrance area of the building is in line with the existing commercial building line at Clarence Avenue and has a sustainable green roof. The very small plot is exactly on the boundary line to the Town Centre boundary and just outside the Area Action Plan boundary of the Gants Hill Town Centre Area Action Plan. The site is located within very short walking distance to tube station and the area has an excellent public transport accessibility level (PTAL) rating between 5-6.

Council votes in favor of turning Villa Hills church land into homes, retail
 
03:03
VILLA HILLS, Ky. (WKRC) - Local 12's Paula Toti attended a heated debate in Villa Hills Tuesday night. A new development in Villa Hills is moving forward. City council gave the go-ahead to an 85-acre development that will include a four-story apartment building. This benefits the Benedictine Sisters who are selling their land to a developer to fund their retirement. The Kenton County planning commission had already voted to recommend the project. Hundreds packed the council meeting hoping city council members would see things differently. Some, in fact, did, but the majority on a three to two vote green-lighted a project that will be unlike any others nearby. The tense words back and forth started right away at the meeting, as council members gave their reasons, before their votes Many of these families have been to two meetings in three weeks, and many represent the two thousand petition signatures against plans to build 190 homes, 35 townhomes, some retail and a 187 unit apartment building. That building with its four stories would be larger in scale than anything in Northern Kentucky according to councilman Scott Ringo. He says the project is like dropping an airport size hanger in the middle of a residential neighborhood. But the planning commission said the plans for the land being sold by the nuns does not violate the comprehensive plan for the neighborhood. Resident Don Fox came to listen and was upset with the crowd. He said "I listened to some who voted in favor and some who voted against and they had good reasons. I was disappointed in citizens who shouted them down." Some shouted and some cried. Cathy Stover helped chair the petition drive that showed half of voters opposed, and thinks that should have carried more weight. Steve Nurre lives about a block away. He says "I will see the lights from the parking lot. It's a shame council didn't override it because they are worried about legal ramifications". Another point that really angered residents is that they were told if a challenge to the project gets to the circuit court. Only comments made by residents at the planning commission meetings would be considered. So, for instance, the petition that was presented at a council meeting would not be part of the evidence against the construction.

01:10
In today's quick video, Modern Tiny Living's Daniel Hamilton addresses the topic of buying pre-made plans.

If you're interested in learning about our architectural design services, contact us at contact@moderntinyliving.com.
