Would You Live in A Chicken Coop? Tampa Real Estate News and More!

Filed under: Buying a House in Tampa, Historic Tampa, Hyde Park Real Estate, Places to Live, Tampa Home Search, Tampa Real Estate, Tampa Real Estate Market, Things to Ponder

Doorout(Large)In the Tampa Real Estate Market, you will find plenty of “cool” places to live that were converted from historic buildings, or warehouses, especially in the Channelside district,  and even a former “bread factory”, as is the case with a recent project in the Hyde Park area.

In other parts of the world, and the U.S., it’s not unusual to find former churches, or other structures with unique architectural qualities, being converted to residences. It’s a nice departure from the “tear down and build new” mentality. But, there are some structures that normally don’t render themselves to a conversion for  residential use. In many rural areas, you will find former farms with many “outbuildings”…barns, garages and, of course, chicken coops.  Would you live in a chicken coop???

Guest(Large)I asked that question recently as my daughter and son-in-law moved to a former “Chicken Coop” in Sonoma County. That’s right…a chicken coop. Ironically, both mothers asked the same question…”Does it smell?”…I guess that’s a “mother” question. The chickens are long gone, so apparently the odor went with them!

In the middle of a vineyard, with a few goats and wild turkeys nexVines(Large)t door, the photos convinced me that life was pretty sweet in the chicken coop. What do you think?  Could you live in a chicken coop?
