About this listing

The Hen House is a small 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 (cat, tortoise, chicken) to hang with. Lots of gardens too.

The Space

The converted garage has salvaged gym floor (fromPCC) that add color and light. There are 3 skylights so an abundance of natural light fill the place. There is a loft to sleep in and another small couch that pulls out as a single bed. 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. There are chickens in the backyard and sometimes there are fresh eggs to eat. I will leave basic necessities (such as coffee and cream) out there.

You'll enter by walking up my driveway and going to the back unit. The entrance is separate but the backyard is shared with me and my 2 girls. 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 church that was demolished. There is lots of privacy but you might hear chickens or a far away train.
