The Phinney Home Design & Remodel Fair will be held Sunday, January 31. Please stop by Room 6 to say hello!!
This year’s theme, “Smaller Living, Larger Life,” will focus on ideas for living in a smaller footprint, simplifying, expanding outdoor living space or converting part of a home for a multi-generational household. Sheri Newbold, owner of live-work-play, will be a featured speaker. Her presentation, Creating a Backyard Cottage, begins at 12:50 p.m. Topics include:
– What to think about: goals and values for your Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit (DADU) (Read live-work-play’s informative blog post on Backyard Cottages here.)
– What to do to get started: does your property meet initial requirements (such as area) and talking about your project with architects and contractors.
– Plus, a brief discussion on potential code changes that may make it easier to create your backyard cottage.
The Fair runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m and showcases a selection of over 70 local exhibitors including general and specialty contractors, suppliers, designers, landscape professionals, nonprofit groups and permitting agencies. Check the Fair website for a full schedule of presentations.
Tickets are just $4 for PNA Members and $6 for General Public. Children under 12 are free and tickets are only available at the door. The Phinney Center is located at 6532 Phinney Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103.
Looking forward to seeing you at Sheri’s presentation, or stop by room 6 to chat with us at live-work-play.
