You’re Invited! Old House Fair: March 5th
Join us as we celebrate the Old House Fair with the Metro Historic Zoning Commission on March 5th from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
The Old House Fair is a FREE day-long festival that introduces property owners to new ideas, practical advice, innovative materials, and quality services through exhibitors and presentations. This year, one or two Tiny Houses will be on site for participants to tour, courtesy of Ben Sistrunk of Urban Living Design, David Latimer of Nashville Tiny Homes and Zac Thomas of Paragon Group. A Tiny House is one that is just 250 square feet or less. Robin Zeigler, historic zoning administrator for the Metro Historic Zoning Commission, says, “Tiny Homes are a great way for properties owners in established neighborhoods to obtain extra income to help maintain their historic buildings or to stay in their neighborhood if downsizing, assuming of course that they meet all local zoning and code regulations.”
Another new offering this year are children’s crafts and activities hosted by Historic Travellers Rest Plantation & Museum. The event includes door prizes, the Smoke et al food truck, and informational presentations.
Lectures focus on enhancing energy efficiency, finding your interior style, and hints on purchasing new windows, when needed, and homeowners insurance. For more information visit www.oldhousefair.org. Be sure to stop by the Allard Ward Architects booth and say hi. We hope to see you there!
