six micro homes

Tour new tiny-home village by Pinewood Atlanta Studios

micro homePinewood Forest will host the grand opening of its six-home micro village—the first micro homes in the country to be fully powered by geothermal and solar energy—from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 20.

Adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios’ 700 acres and 18 sound stages, the micro-village homes range from 375 to 500 square feet and are purposefully designed for a full life in a small space. Situated overlooking 50 acres of forest, the houses are finished with energy efficient appliances and fixtures and have direct access to the bike path that circles the greater Pinewood Forest community.   

micro house 2Pinewood Forest is a 235-acre master planned residential and mixed-use development located in south metro Atlanta, Georgia, by Pinewood Studios. Envisioned as a haven for storytellers and creatives, the new urbanist community is a contemporary concept in walkable living. The Pinewood Forest development team includes chief visionary and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan T. Cathy, residential planner Lew Oliver Inc. and Piedmont Healthcare. The grand opening event will be held in conjunction with MicroLife Institute and will  feature tours of each micro home, plus Pinewood Forest’s 325 square foot Kasita, which was a model for the new homes. MicroLife Institute, a 501(c)(3) organization, promotes a minimalist lifestyle, encouraging people to rethink how they utilize space.

microhouse 3A lunch and learn with Pinewood Forest leaders and the architect will offer visitors insight into the planning and construction process. Tickets are required; for more information go to https://www.microlifeinstitute.org/events/atlanta-micro-home-tours and www.pinewoodforest.com
