Check out this lively, modern chicken coop by Nicole Starnes Taylor of MAKE Design Studio. Taylor designed it for three chickens and their owners in urban Seattle. With a screen floor and castors, the mobile hen house fertilizes the underlying ground. Also, the coop has a hinged door for easy access and can be used as a chicken tractor if need be. Taylor built the 15 square-foot coop with salvaged framing lumber.
Earlier this month, the Historic Savannah Foundation gave a preservation award to a 54-year old, mid-century modern home in Savannah, Georgia. We were able to get some detail and photos of the kitchen renovation aspect from Bazzèo, a New Jersey-based manufacturer of green kitchen and bath cabinets. The design retained the original kitchen layout, but water-damaged kitchen and bath cabinets were replaced.
Resysta is an attractive, sustainable, and non-plastic alternative to wood. With the look and feel of wood, Resysta is very durable, water-resistant and most comparable to the typically unsustainable, tropical hardwoods; however, it contains no wood. Suitable for decking, cladding, interior wall cladding or marine applications, Resysta is flexible enough for all projects.
