With the weather getting warmer, perhaps you're thinking about a visit to the lake or the local pool with the week coming to an end. If not, check out this ultra luxury home located on the beach near Diamond Head State Monument in Honolulu, Hawaii — it'll get you thinking. Earlier this year, the home was featured in the Honolulu Star Bulletin and described as being for sale for $6,680,000, but it's now listed at $5,988,000.
We’re fascinated with small houses like this one in Jackson, Wyoming. The “park model” home was featured on the Tiny House Blog the other day, racking up a slew of comments. Referred to as the “Caboose,” it turns out the home was built with SIP walls and roofing (for energy efficiency) and has bamboo flooring, a dual-flush toilet, LED lighting, and an exterior cladding of both rusty metal and cedar siding. It cost $95,000 to build but can be rented if you’re near Jackson Hole Campground.
Green One Construction Services just completed phase one in Sage Green, an ultra energy efficient community in Beaverton, Oregon. The entire project will have a total of 18 homes, and the first five are now on the market with pricing between $257,900 and $259,000. I guess you can say it's a small price to pay for the desirable, but still rare, benefit of zero net energy living.
