A ‘Little House Neighbourhood’ is being built in McKinley Beach next year

If you like the idea of living in a townhouse, but don’t want to share a wall, a “Little House Neighbourhood” could be right up your alley.

In 2020, Little House Contracting Corp will be building 20 Scandinavian-inspired homes nestled into a beautiful area in the community of McKinley Beach.

The homes create less impact on the environment, fewer chores, smaller bills and more chances to connect with nature and friends.

“People love the idea of downsizing and simplifying their lives while reducing their impact on the environment,” explains LHCC founder Tara Tschritter.

“The issue they face is that the only options currently on the market are condos and townhomes. Many people we speak to want their own space, their own walls, a detached home.”

The neighbourhood in McKinley Beach will be called LIV and it’ll offer two or three bedrooms homes that are between 1,100 and 1,250 square feet.

Tschritter likens these homes to 1940s-style homes built for the modern day.

Each unit also comes with a solar panel package, which can generate enough energy to charge an electric car.

The homes will start at $488,000 and pre-sales appointments begin on Nov. 17.
