I just got an email from Brian at ISA yesterday that local, nonprofit news radio station WHYY interviewed them about the 100K project last Friday and aired it already yesterday. WHYY posted a short blurb on their website yesterday with a link to an mp3 of the short clip. WHYY MP3 Clip on the 100K House [...]

Shedworking is green but...

A nice piece by Michael Graham Richard on Treehugger says that working from home is green and saves money but that most employers are still not keen. He writes: "In these days of increasing environmental awareness and rising oil prices, telecommuting is gaining mindshare. Yet employers are still reluctant." This follows CIO Insight Research's Mobility Survey which reveals that just over 50% of CIOs and other senior IT leaders claim their companies discourage fulltime telecommuting (although on the up side, almost one half said that their company's policy had become more pro-telecommuting over the last three years).

The remains of the Arkansas trailer went to the dump today. Then we started to work on the interior walls. First we layed the templates onto new wood and traced the outline. The new pieces were cut roughly to shape on a bandsaw....and then fine-tuned [...]

BURST*008 - "Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters"

Or in the case of BURST*008, it's more like "Raise High the Roof Panels, Crane." (With apologies to J.D Salinger, if he's reading this. We hear New Hampshire is lovely this time of year.) Now that the skeleton of the house has been knit together, it's time for the exoskeleton: first the floors and then the roof. As we noted earlier, these are being made from SIPs panels, which is an innovation over the previous BURST. For the prototype, the roof was put on in small pieces by the student workers. But in midtown Manhattan, we have the luxury of a crane. Driven by this bloke. You gotta have a pretty even disposition to drive a crane and he fits the bill.
