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.
This is martial arts instructor and ex-photographer Steve Rapport’s LV home, a modern prefab designed by Rocio Romero, in Pacifica, California. Steve has been documenting the construction and working budget on his site, The Minnie House — a reference to his late mom, Mina, sometimes called Minnie — and the finished home is looking fantastic. Check out some interior and exterior photos below:
