FreeGreen, a provider of free and premium green house plans, recently unveiled a new premium plan called Loop House.

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.
