Listing agent Heather Wilkinson of Fathom Realty says homes in the gated Hickory Estates neighborhood on Lake Lewisville don’t come on the market very often, but when they do they go quickly. She was right as this three-bedroom, 2 and half-bath home at 101 Wild Oak Lane in Hickory Creek has a contingent offer after less than 10 days on MLS. The 1978-built stucco home has 1,652 square feet on half an acre that backs up to the lake and is listed for $384,900.

The time has come to power down those gaming devices, put away the cell phones, turn off the television, and play outside.

Seriously.

The humble three-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 5403 Countess Court, Lake Dallas, has so much backyard space, there’s just no excuse when Mom tells the kids to go play outside.

Perched on 6,490 square feet, this Weekend One Hundred selection has so many updates you’d never believe it was built in 1976. (more…)

B.A. Norrgard is a Dallas-born, tiny house evangelist that has worked tirelessly to find a place to park her bed over her head in the North Texas area. Tomorrow, that work comes to fruition.

From Staff Reports

Ever since B.A. Norrgard launched her website and tiny home tour, the goal was to get more people to understand tiny home living and sustainability. The more people on smaller footprints there are, her reasoning followed, the more successful communal tiny home villages would be. She’s let countless people traipse through her home, including several members of BuzzFeed’s staff, and toured trailing her small abode across the nation. It’s been years in the making, but tomorrow, Norrgard will celebrate the fruition of that plan.

The long-awaited groundbreaking for the Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at the tiny home village site at 206 Gotcher Avenue.

Initial work on the tiny home village began in 2016 when real estate developer and investor Terry Lantrip brought the idea to the elected officials in Lake Dallas. By that time, Norrgard had already floated the idea past other municipalities, but it never really firmed up. Lantrip had been aware of the tiny home movement going back as far as 2008, but the idea came to life when Lantrip attended Earth Day in Dallas a few years ago when tiny homes were spotlighted with thousands standing in line for hours to view the homes.
