Hi all! Keeping with my New Year’s resolution to blog once a week, I decided to sit down and write a brief post this evening, even though I’m feeling a little short on time. No worries though; I’ll be back to writing full length
novels posts next week.
This brief post is inspired by a website I came across yesterday while googling info on “green”/efficient homes. I am very happy to be here at Lot 26 at this point in my life, but CF and talk a lot about where we’d like to live in the future, and we often dream about building our own home someday–something energy efficient and architecturally interesting…but I digress. Anyway, I was day-dreaming and looking up info on green homes, and as it happens, I was led to some pages on modular and pre-fab houses.
For the record, I’m kind of in love with FlatPak. I love that it’s technically pre-fabricated, but that you have so much control over the design of your own home. And, of course, I like that it appears to be pretty cheap and green. But that dream is for a far off future 🙂
In my searches, I also came across Tumbleweed Houses. I had heard of this guy and his tiny homes before, but it didn’t catch my eye the way it did this time. I mean, just look at this picture:
It’s like the tiniest mobile home ever! I’ve been reading more and more about tiny homes; it seems that the emphasis on living in big mansions is diminishing in favor of more energy efficient and cheaper housing–which I think is great….
But I’m not sure I could live in one of those tiny homes–by myself, maybe, but with another person? I think CF and I rather enjoy have some space to move around in…Lot 26 suits us just fine 🙂
Until next week, may all your internet searches be fruitful and/or interesting, and may all your homes be happy!
