Here’s a quick note to modern enthusiasts.  Gilt Groupe just listed plans for a Dwell Home by Turkel Design for 50% off the normal rate.  That’s $12,500 for the Finisterre 1115 plan and architectural services to customize the plan.  The plans are for a contemporary home that can be used as a first home or weekend retreat, depending on an owner’s situation, and doesn’t require much land to make it work.

Finisterre allows for 1,115 square feet of living split between two levels.  The first includes a kitchen, partial bathroom, dining area, and living room, while the second has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a sizeable roof deck.

Turkel Designs offers several other homes through the Dwell Homes Collection made by Lindal Cedar Homes.  They’re modern, warm, and built to optimize site orientation using smart framing, energy-efficient systems, and green materials.

As for Finisterre, Gilt’s description explains that the home will have “sustainable design elements.”  Other than that reference, I wasn’t able to locate what may or may not be “green.”  Perhaps, if curious, one could get a list of standard materials, designs, and components from Turkel Designs prior to purchase.

If you need access to Gilt Groupe, feel free to use Jetson Green or ask one of your friends for an invite.  This sale ends on the 23rd or earlier, if sold out.
