Today Hulger announced the new Baby Plumen 001, a designer CFL light bulb that tracks the original Plumen 001. It’s a smaller 9-watt bulb that’s meant to replace a 40-watt incandescent. The 220-volt version is available today through Plumen.com, while the 120-volt version, which is compatible in North America, will be available later this year. The Baby Plumen lasts about 8,000 hours and has a color temperature of 2700 Kelvin.
Speaking of the Cottage Series, here’s the first prefab home in this line by Method Homes with a design by Studio 29. Located on Orcas Island, the home was designed for a Washington family wanting a vacation getaway with some of the more traditional details — sleeping loft, breakfast nook, window seats, etc — typically found in classic homes of the 19th century.
If your design palette is traditional, you’ll probably like the new Cottage Series by Studio 29 and Method Homes. The Cottage Series marries craftsman style with off-site fabrication in six floor plans. These have tiered pricing based on things like the materials, interior palette, and finish packages. For a general idea, pricing is between about $215,400 – $498,300 (not including separate, optional garage and ADU structures from $23,000).
