Copeland Casati, founder of Green Modern Kits and Green Cottage Kits, just sent over a link to her newly launched website for Green Cabin Kits. They have two designs that are customizable: CornerHouse (top 3 renderings) and The Dogtrot Mod (bottom 3 renderings). They’re quite slick, aren’t they? CornerHouse is an expandable design that’s versatile enough for urban infill or some rural location in the middle of nowhere. You choose. The Dogtrot Mod is also expandable but a little different. It features an open court in the middle to ventilate and separate the living spaces. Both kits were designed to accomodate rainwater collection and solar power generation.
The cabins are built with SIPs and steel and can be customized in an endless manner to suit the needs of a future cabin owner. So, if you’re thinking about getting a Green Cabin Kit, and I know I am, Copeland estimates that a kit will run you roughly $100 psf, more or less (see FAQs for more details).
