It may only be mid-February, but I imagine some of you are already planning Spring projects. If any of those involve decking perhaps Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies has a recycled content material worth using: MoistureShield. The company just announced that certain lines of MoistureShield contain 95% total recycled content, as verified by ICC-ES.
Faberhaus Pavillon, a 376-square foot eco cottage, was on display this past weekend at the Cottage & Country Home Show in Montreal. The Pavillon was designed and built by Faberca as a compact, self-sufficient space for folks interested in country living — those who want to “live in the great outdoors.“ Owners wouldn’t need an electrical connection with this retreat home because it’s powered by solar panels and propane.
This 566-square foot modern home sits on an infill lot in Toronto and has been getting a lot of attention in the last few months. That’s partially in response to the design and maybe some general interest in small homes — this one is roomy for an urban condo but small for a single-family house. The owner, Patrick Flynn, wanted something modern, low-maintenance, and minimalist and this place is all of those things.
