Good morning Noah, good morning Mr. Lands, good morning Mr. Bouma,

I forgot that the "bridge home" is on Trillium. I drove by this morning on my way to work (no time for bike today I'm afraid). Beautiful morning. Many of my coworkers have been through this home, they say it is really incredible inside (and NOT reminiscient of a trailor home). I can see the exterior being a matter of personal preference, I happen to like it. The advantage for a neighbor I saw is the undiminished sightline to the west (for 2977), the bridge home is so low profile it allows for a better view.

Noah, it looks like you have been looking at homes for a while, when are you going to come to town and check them out for yourself? Enjoy the day, Todd

Hi Noah, Hi Todd Chamberlin!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I happen to think it is beautiful and very unique. Recently I took a few retired friends by the house for a look and one of them loved it and two thought why did they build it.
This structure you speak of is really a very cool "Bridge House". It spans a shallow ravine without posts. I believe they used I-beams from a highway bridge. It is as you see long (from North to South) and narrow (from East to West). I walked around it during its begining and met some workers who gave me a nickel tour once it took more shape. It feels like an older mobile home (but much nicer) with its' long hallway and rooms off to one side. I love houses of all shapes and sizes and I know most of the interesting ones in the greater Ann Arbor area. Feel free to write or call for anything, my cell phone number is 734/ Mi-LANDS and my web site is http://www.MICHIGANLANDS.com.
Good luck in your quest for a new home.
When you think of real estate, you should always think of LANDS!
Respectfully,

Hey, that structure is my house. Just kidding. I actually live about 2 miles from there, if I get a chance I will drive by and let you know. Might be tomorrow at this point. If you want honest advice about a Realtor that matches your personality and needs, we should talk. Let me see what I can find out, good excuse for a bike ride- Todd

That is actually a comtemporary home that is in the process of being completed. I recently represented the owner of that home in the sale of their home in Ann Arbor. They are wonderful people. Feel free to contact me should you have any further questions. You can contact me at: bouma@bouma.com or 734-761-9666
