I recently noticed this time-lapse video of C3, the first, green, modular home in Chicago, so I decided it was time to update our coverage of the project. The five-module home was designed by Square Root Architecture + Design, and general contractor Helios Design + Build ensured a smooth assembly in one day on November 9, 2010. After some site work, the owners are now finishing the landscaping for final images. But we have some early photos of the completed home.

*Leave one comment per person through the end of Wednesday, June 8, 2011, to be considered for a random giveaway of one Tigressá area rug from Shaw Floors.
Last year Shaw Floors sent us a sample kit of their new Tigressá SoftStyle carpet, which is made with recyclable Nylon 6 and designed for durable, long-life performance. In celebration of the one year anniversary of the launch, Shaw sent us an 8′ x 10′ area rug called A Touch Too Much, the number one selling style in Tigressá, and gave us an extra to give away today.
