As Atlantans with large families or several roommates continue to adjust to the state’s “shelter in place” order by working from home, they may naturally find themselves longing for the peace and quiet of their regular offices.
Frank Golley, founder and designer of Golley Houses, combines his background in industrial design and experience in real estate to launch a Decatur-based business that taps into an emerging lifestyle trend—tiny houses.
Tiny house startup, Golley Houses, is on a mission to help families build ‘affordable’ backyard classrooms during the Covid-19 pandemic. The company has designed an affordable tiny house flat-pack kit that can be used as a backyard classroom for families struggling to find space for homeschooling and remote learning.
Small communities across the United States 100 years ago often included a structure now rarely seen other than in Norman Rockwell paintings—the one-room schoolhouse. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this often-beloved bit of Americana may make a comeback.
