This is the Kiwi House, an 823 square-foot abode in Bozeman, Montana. The home, owned by Stephen and Julie Shea, was designed by Comma-Q Architecture with the hearth — a soapstone fireplace from Finland-based Tulikivi – radiating warmth from open kitchen and living room area. It’s constructed on an infill lot and covered in a combination of locally-sourced Montana stone and reclaimed redwood and metal.
When I first saw The Wedge, pictured in this article, I immediately thought about the Caboose, which is a tiny house in Wyoming that we mentioned about a year ago. It turns out both of these off-site fabricated cabins are made by Wyoming-based Wheelhaus. Check it out, this is a company that’s turning out next-gen recreational park trailers built with quality and sustainable materials.
As mentioned a few months ago, Massachusetts- and California-based Blu Homes recently undertook the construction of a new Glidehouse prefab on Vashon Island in Washington. The home was built in a factory and shipped to the island — by ferryboat, there are no bridges — where it was later unpacked for finishing various site details. Here are a few photos of the completed home.
