Real Estate that has gone to the birds

November 11, 2010

 The backyard hen house doesn’t seem like prime real estate, but it could be with a super sleek design.  Here is an article from Dwell magazine about an east coast architect who moved to the west coast and was quickly converted to a gardener and hen raiser.  His first professional job was designing a mod home for the feathered ladies.  Here in Seattle, back yard real estate has definately gone to the birds.  Right along with the Street of Dreams tour is the annual City Chicken Coop Tour sponsored by Seattle Tilth.  Designs range from Craftsman, to Contemporary, to Fanciful.  Here in the Pacific Northwest we take our gardens, and our chickens, and our goats pretty seriously.  But we also like innovative design.  And we see no reason to not combine the two.
