Stay-at-home strategy workshops

November 28th, 2011 · No Comments

Microhouse architecture and design firm and two partners are offering workshops for seniors on how to “age in place,” as the popular catchphrase goes. The first workshop is from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday at the Phinney Neighborhood Association, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., in the Brick Building, room 32. The topic is Backyard Cottage for Seniors. Admission is free.

Seeking stay-at-home alternatives? Backyard cottages can provide creative housing options for seniors and their families. Join Microhouse, Ncompass Cottage Company, and Husky Senior Care to learn more about aging-in-place strategies including the design construction and use of backyard cottages. Bring your ideas and questions. After the presentation we will have plenty of time to discuss your project.

For more information or to RSVP, call 206-428-8599, or email info@microhousenw.com.

Their next workshop will be at the PNA Home Design Fair from 12:30-1 p.m. on Jan. 29 (admission to the fair is $6 for PNA members, $10 general); and the third, titled Stay-at-Home Strategies, is from 7-9 p.m. on Feb. 29 at the PNA ($20 PNA members, $25 general).
