Green Bridge Farm - Latest Blog Comments en-us Tiny house - Michael Maddox <p>Yes I did get approval! I'm kind of in shock. I honestly didn't think I would. They have to be factory built however. No DIYs but it's a start! We will have one in about a month. We will only have three lots left after the new tiny house comes and she buys the lot. </p> Thu, 14 Sep 2017 13:19:34 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4515675 Tiny house - Sina Aucoin <p>Hi Michael, did you end up finding out on September 5 whether you got approval for Tiny Houses from the county you live in? Thanks! Sina :)</p> Wed, 13 Sep 2017 23:33:43 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4457609 Tiny House Approval - Michael Maddox <p>Diana it appears you are down on your luck. I'm a musician too. Are you two able to get any government assistance for your disabilities? I'm afraid buying a lot and buying a tiny house might be out of your price range and borrowing money would probably be difficult due to your inability to keep good paying jobs. Maybe you get a camper and find a campground that takes pets? To build a tiny house would cost about 30k and my lots are going for 50k. To buy a good tiny house you would need to borrow around 50k.

You should look through my photo gallery to see the houses that have gone up. I am trying to get approval for Tiny Houses from the county I live in . I'll know about that on September 5.</p> Thu, 31 Aug 2017 07:14:02 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4376325 Tiny house - Sondra johncox <p>Is this community up and running or still in the planning stages</p> Wed, 30 Aug 2017 18:49:03 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4376124 Tiny house - Michael Maddox <p>Thanks for your interest in my project. We live in a rural area and don't have municipal water or sewage so the lots need to be over 1 acre according to code, to accommodate the space required for the septic and well so I don't have any smaller lots. You could save some money and swim in the pond on the community lot instead of putting in a lap pool! That's where I swim. Each lot buyer also owns the two acre community lot and all of the roads here too. A septic system and a well will cost about 8-10k total depending on the size of your house. We are looking forward to your visit. </p> Sat, 26 Aug 2017 08:30:12 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4375186 Tiny house - Kimberly D Stewart <p>I am a widow, portrait painter, renting in Savannah right now. I'm very interested in the tiny house concept. Do you plan to have any lots smaller and less expensive than $50,000? That's too much for me. <br />Also, how much will it cost to put in a septic tank? I would love to also have a lap pool if possible and a pergola for Wisteria. Please let me know what you might have available for me in the near future. Thanks so much! Kim :) </p> Fri, 25 Aug 2017 14:08:25 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4375006 Tiny house - Michael Maddox <p>I got a call from my commissioner and he told me he is optimistic about getting enough votes at the next commissioners meeting to win the variance to allow tiny houses at Green Bridge Farm! That's good news. </p> Mon, 21 Aug 2017 08:21:28 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4373714 Tiny house - Michael Maddox <p>Unfortunately the commissioners tabled their decision for their next meeting . They weren't quite ready for the novelty of tiny houses. I'm disappointed but not beaten. The meeting was generally positive but they are a conservative body not used to innovation and change. I'll keep you posted!</p> Wed, 16 Aug 2017 07:55:14 -0400 /blog/entry/4196256/tiny-house#comment4372415 Tiny House - Michael Maddox <p>Hey Vickie &amp; Michael . I talked to a Vickie today not sure this is the same Vickie? Is your tiny house on wheels? I am in the process of getting permission to allow tiny house owners to live her on the lots legally. I passed the planning board vote and the commissioners vote is in two weeks . You would need a well and a septic and the lots are going for 50k each but they are large( 1.5 acres) and heavily wooded. I don't have any rentals available right now. Give me a call at 912-667-1118 to discuss further!</p> Sun, 06 Aug 2017 17:22:37 -0400 /blog/entry/3910418/tiny-house#comment4369790 Tiny House - Michael L Dimsdale <p>I have a 16x24 tiny house, question is can I rent or buy lot to put.

I don't mention it much on this site but the land the community and farm are on was a land grant to my Irish family in 1798. The governor gave us two hundred acres. I'm not the first farmer on this property ! I worked for the City of Savannah for 25 years and took early retirement at 57. Since then I've really extended the gardens . I started gardening and working on the project about 25 years ago and moved out here 15 years ago. As I tell people &quot; I've already done the heavy lifting all you have to do is build a house&quot;. I designed and built my house that my wife and I live in , in 2002. I wanted a house that looked like my grandparents circa 1866 house that is still standing on the property and being occupied by my sister and her husband. Her son, my nephew , lives here too. I'll send you my email and my phone number and we can schedule a visit for you. Thanks for your interest in our project. </p> Thu, 12 Jan 2017 05:55:03 -0500 /blog/entry/29993/welcome-to-my-website#comment4317371 Welcome To My Website - Rob Kalander <p>I was out in Georgia. Peach Tree City. Visiting my Daughter &amp; Son in law a a slew of Grandkids. 4. I saw a local T.V. program about your planned community and ideas. It sounded quite nice to me. I'm a retired L.A. Co. Paramedic Fireman. <br />One of the things that really got me interested is your Gardens. I'm 62 now but have been gardening with my Family's since I can remember. Those were back in the days we had to grow vegtables. Raise rabbits and we could have up to six chickens. To this day it's still one of my favorite things to do. When I retired at 50 my wif e lived in a 26 ft M.H. and traveled every road in Mexico, Canada's and the U.S. my wife past about 2 yrs ago and you place sounds good to me. I'm also a builder and can build and fix most anything. <br />Please contact me when you have time. One other thing you should know about me. I'm financially secure and regularly volunteer my time to people in need. Thanks.
