iT House

So I stumbled upon the iT House construction blog and was completely blown away by the documentation they’re posting.  It’s an incredible little home that was designed by Taalman Koch for a five-acre lot in the high desert.  It’ll be a model home and completely off-grid.  There’s an on-site septic tank, 2500 gallon domestic water tank, and eight solar PV panels by Evergreen — and the home is just the right size, too.

Design is paramount with the iT House.   There’s Bulthaup cabinets, a Fireorb chimney, 3form backsplashes, and Polygal cladding.  I really like the Sarah Morris / Liam Gillick panels, too.

In looking at the images of the all glass home, you’ll notice the aluminum framing by Bosch.  The Bosch system is used for assembly line robots and test benches, but Taalman Koch found that it’s the perfect rust-proof, lightweight structural system for a smaller abode.  It’s light enough to be assembled by two people.  Make sure to check the blog for images of the whole process.
