This Rocio Romero LV Series home was built in 2007 on Whidbey Island in Washington. The owners have the 11-acre patch of land and home listed for sale for $429,000, which includes 1,190 square feet, 2 bedrooms, and 1.75 bathrooms. The listing says the home has stainless appliances, CaesarStone countertops, bamboo floors, radiant heat, and everything else that comes with an LV model home. Check out this modern prefab:
I like visiting new green homes like this one, the Sungazing House in Park City, Utah. I wrote about the home one year ago today and used some informal photos to create a short video embedded above. Since my initial tour, the net-zero, LEED Platinum project has been featured all over the world in such places as Green Builder Magazine and EcoHome Magazine.
The tiny house movement is just blowing up, and we’ve seen growing interest in our tiny house archives in recent months. This week, Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, seller of tiny houses such as the Popomo, as well as books and plans, recently announced the launch of a new book — Backyard Sheds & Tiny Houses — and several new Box Bungalow plans under 110 square feet. The plans sell for roughly $50 and the kits can be had for about $12,000 – $15,000. If you’re interested in ADUs, backyard cottages, and tiny homes, we have a list of the new stuff from Tumbleweed below.
