I really like the ideabox. As the site says, it’s “Hip & Green”, and their design credo is: Why use more than you need to? The house is delivered complete and ready to move in after set-up on a properly...

Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen designed and built this sweet little one-room, 200sf. cabin (which overlooks a fjord in Hardanger, Norway) as an experiment when they were first starting out.

Sorry, been awhile in updating as construction has been going full steam ahead lately. Which is a good thing considering where we were a month ago! (read my post on that debacle) Currently we are working on the main floor ICF walls. I needed to make all the bucks for the windows and after making the [...]

Dateline: Daybreak, Utah I just returned from Utah where I attended a fascinating community planning brainstorm and then toured the state's newest new town: Daybreak, at the south end of the Salt Lake Valley. Views across the valley to jagged peaks promote blue sky thinking: no wonder that famous early settler said "This is the Place." The planning session, called...

Finally a use for those outdated yellowpages that they insist on dropping at your doorstep. The folks over at www.afroditi.com came up with this great simple idea. You take a bunch of pages from your yellow pages, twist them up, and stick them inside of the tube of your choice. You get [...]

(Pre backfilled days with the bridge. Crocodiles in moat below there but not visible in photo) Backfilled! Doesn’t sound like much but what a difference it is filling the trench around the house with dirt. Looks very different now. The waterproofing was tricky… well for me. Scot had dropped off the waterproofing peel and stick earlier on [...]

We went to IKEA yesterday to order our kitchen. Originally we were planning on going once the house was closed up but I had read that our cabinet style we wanted was going away and so we decided to go earlier. And lucky we did!  We arrived at the kitchen area after a round of Swedish [...]

I had heard about ICF’s around 2001 and was interested in them immediately due to the energy savings and it looked easy to construct. My good friend Ed a few years later was starting his plans to build his house and was going to used ICF’s and so that got me even more curious.  What are [...]

I’ve been interested in geothermal heating since about 2001 when the local utility company started advertising it. I read about it and it sounded like a no brainer… until the cost and installation details came up. I had assumed it would be like buying a new furnace in that you just buy the unit, install it, [...]
