Today's national edition of the New York Times features a story about the couple that built the first Glidehouse, Kindra and Andrew Reid of Chelan, WA. The story, found in the Escapes section, is not online yet, so go get your hard copy today.



The article, Modern Kit Houses: Thinking Inside the Box (free registration required), also cites several other prefab favorites. But it quotes the owners of the first Glidehouse:

What's really magic about the house is its beauty. Outside, its somewhat industrial looking, but inside it's a celebration of nature. There are bamboo floors, wooden cabeinets. There's rugged stone tile in the bathroom, and when you stand in the shower the floor feels like real ground. I used to associate contemporary with cold, impersonal spaces, but this house has completely changed that. It's like living in a Japanese garden.
