Our third and final installment of the Indoor Air Quality Marker Time videos. In retrospect, this should have been the first of the IAQ series. Oh well. As Nic will tell you, we covered this topic about the homes first rather than things like recycled materials and solar panels because we believe it is overlooked [...]

Sverre Fehn - Outhouse of the Month

A welcome return to cracking outhouses with this beauty by Sverre Fehn highlighted by Aaron Britt at Dwell Blog . As Aaron says: "Norwegian modernist Sverre Fehn was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1997, and what was that eminent architect’s first post-Pritzker commission? An outhouse... This rustic little country commode evokes both the local building traditions and the surrounding mountains with a tongue-in-cheek nod to the grander, if uneven, museum nearby."

Bill Amberg - shedworker

Leather crafter and designer Bill Amberg talks about his garden office in the Observer 's My Space slot. Interestingly he actively encourages his family to share it ("It's my space, but it's not private. The kids use it as a playground where they can create things - they're always down here making belts and funny bags on the workbench, and my wife Susie and I use it to throw parties"). No picture of his shed as yet, but he does make nice bags (above). I particularly like this comment too: "Some people don't get it, of course - they think it's just a dark hole at the bottom of the garden. 'Getting the shed' isn't a test of friendship, but it's certainly encouraging if people do." Well worth a browse.

From Julie: I hadn’t thought about Rachel Ashwell’s Shabby Chic line for a while; recently, a new store opened in Marin and I wandered in. Ashwell has started to mix more minimally styled pieces into her familiar line of overstuffed, boudoir-ready upholstered pieces; she also has some good lighting choices. Below: The Ceramic Pendant Lamp comes with [...]

We have been considering putting some sweat equity into the construction of the 100K House from the beginning in order to increase the value. We wanted to keep the list of sweat equity tasks reasonable to keep the construction on schedule. There is also the desire to keep the list of tasks to a difficulty [...]
