Micropolis Monday: Blue Houses

Sometimes, I developer will buy two lots and redivided them into three. This kind of thing happens a fair amount in Portland, so I figured that I should represent another kind of urban infill.


Three identical houses in a row. Not quite townhouses or a row house, but close. Each house squeezed onto a lot that is a bit less than a twelfth of an acre. No room for front yards.


Pushing the houses so far forward leaves just enough room for fenced yards in the back. The red backdoors are just a quirky little detail. that I like.


Not a bad use of space. Three 2000 square-foot houses on a bit less than a quarter acre.

A simple trio of builds, tucked into a single module.

Keep building and enjoy!
