Welcome to the Detroit Homestead and the headquarters of our business, Frontier Industy, LLC! The Homestead is a renovated historic duplex located in Detroit’s central Virginia Park neighborhood, just around the corner from New Center! The Detroit Homestead is located immediately adjacent to MI-10 (John C. Lodge Freeway), public bus lines, a community recreation center, a grocery store and pharmacy; and just a short ride away from Hamtramck, Wayne State University, Henry Ford Hospital, Downtown, Southwest Detroit, and beyond!
Since The Homestead provides more space than we need, we decided to dedicate the entire first floor of the building exclusively to funding our continued development of this multi-faceted project in a sustainable way, through hosting on Airbnb!. We’ve been excited to host guests to Detroit from all over the world who visit for personal, professional, and creative purposes and provide them with not only a home-away-from-home, but a resource for information and experiences in an authentic, convenient neighborhood setting. The Homestead houses not only ourselves and our guests, but our basement bicycle shop from which we rent and repair bicycles for neighbors, friends, and guests, and various creative workshops for our additional pursuits including fashion design and creation, wood work, jewelry work, electronics, music, and visual art. If you’re interested in seeing more of what we’re doing, making, writing, and selling, please check us out on our Frontier Industry, LLC website here!
Our guest flat includes several rooms available for rent, including….
~THE SEA ROOM: a brand new, KING-sized PRIVATE bedroom with closet, dresser and double window;
~THE BIRD ROOM: a brand new QUEEN-sized PRIVATE bedroom with closet and double window;
~THE BUNK ROOM: a brand new, purpose-built room including FOUR TWIN-sized BUNK BEDS with individual lights, work space, and privacy curtains.
~ENTIRE first-floor guest flat, including newly renovated KITCHEN and BATH facilities, LAUNDRY, LOCKERS, and spacious DINING AND LIVING ROOMS with hand built and restored furniture! We even have a spacious yard to either side of the home, a brick-lined FIRE PIT, and a ROPE SWING if you’re feeling playful! We may even have BICYCLES available for you to rent during your visit to Detroit!
The cost of your rental directly funds operation of and further improvements to the Homestead by us! And since we live in the upstairs fat at The Homestead, keeping our living space clean, safe, well organized, and well maintained is our highest priority, while still respecting the privacy and plans of guests!
Future projects towards which your rental will be contributed are: transformation of four adjacent empty lots into farmland to provide vegetables, fruits, eggs, honey, and cheese for house and local residents, development of bike rental and repair facilities by your hosts (also trained bicycle mechanics), and collaboration with local artists to beautify our block and our city.
