Franklin Stone, the exterior living design firm he works in Williamson County, is introducing a village of four tiny homes, which is landscaped with fire pits, water features and other amenities for outside living.

The company is bringing “seven or eight tractor trailer loads” of stone and materials. “It’ll be 100 lots that we bring in,” said Harvey.

Franklin Stone may even display a Zona pergola, with a retractable roof.

“You open and close the rafters to be from the weather to be in the sunshine,” said Harvey.

Anyone remodeling on a budget should be considering Habitat for Humanity’s demonstrations, in which the affordable-housing not-for-profit organization will reveal examples of new and used furniture from its ReStore retail shop and explain its DeConstruct app.

At no cost, Habitat will send a team to remove kitchen counters, cupboards and other items it can reuse, said Fred Kirby, manager of ReStore retail revenue.

“We have taken out mantels, toilets, windows. The guy who manages it has removed over 1,000 kitchens. We’ll clean them up and sell them to the general public in a fraction of the cost,” he explained.

At Nashville, Habitat sells those items in its ReStore, a 33,000-square-foot retail shop at 414 Harding Place. The organization also sells furniture donated by people and new scratch and dent furniture given by Sprintz, a neighborhood merchant.
