About this listing
The Hen House is a converted garage that has everything you need for a visit. I built the place using as much salvaged material that I could find. The loft stairs are very steep so if you are not very agile I would recommend the pullout single bed downstairs. I'm between the Mississippi area, Williams corridor and Alberta Arts District with 2 grocery stores within walking distance. It's private and there are animals (cats and tortoise mostly) to hang with outside. Lots of gardens too.
The converted garage has salvaged gym floor (from Portland Community College) that adds color, and 3 skylights to add natural light. There is a loft to sleep in and another small couch that pulls out as a single bed. The loft is very steep so be careful if you sleep up there. There is a full kitchen but the only oven is a toaster oven. The bathroom is large and has a stackable washer dryer in it. I will leave basic necessities coffee, fruit and surprises out there.
You'll enter by walking through parking strip (feel free to park there if clear) and going up stairs and follow sidewalk to the back unit. The entrance is separate and you have your own side garden but my family uses the sidewalk when leaving the backyard.. There is a garden you're welcome to eat from and a nice sitting spot. The neighborhood is very nice and convenient. There is a Whole Foods and New Seasons within walking distance. I am between the Mississippi, Alberta and Williams neighborhoods. I'm 2 miles from downtown and the bus is very close. There are functioning bikes you can use although they are not in tip top shape.
The place is made from mostly salvaged material. There are many crazy neat light fixtures and a curved church window from a Baptist church they tore down. It is quiet and private but you might hear a chicken, cat fight or a far away train.

Fun and quiet neighborhood but you can walk to a bar or a really good restaurant within minutes.
