MetroCabin Shrinks for 2008

Metrocabin

MetroShed, in collaboration with its Miami-based partner Cabin Fever, recently announced that it would produce a smaller version of the popular 16′ x 20′ MetroCabin in 2008.  The smaller MetroCabin will be 12′ x 16′, with prices starting at $17,460 (which includes flat-packed shipping and delivery).  The new MetroCabin features curved steel roof beams (or the straight roof package), Duro-Last roofing, prefab SIP walls, and premium heavy-duty sliding doors. 

And although the company’s MetroShed product is built with greener materials such as FSC-certified woods, I’m not sure if this one is.  That said, if you live in this, and this alone, I’d say you’re pretty green.

miniHome DUO SE Modern Green Marvel

Minihome Duo

This is the miniHome DUO SE, which is basically the combo of an add-on and the SOLO 2008 version that was recently announced.  Starting at $149,900, it’s a well-designed home of 475 sf.  The DUO uses 1/10th the water, fuels, and materials, and 1/100th the electrical energy of a conventional home: it’s a net-zero energy home.  And as you can tell from the renderings, you can outfit your DUO with a stylish green roof and contemporary wrap-around decking.  Really, anything is possible with this little treasure home.  Small.  Stylish.  Green.  Affordable.  Looks like Sustain MiniHome is offering financing now on their homes, too.

I just got a weeMail and spent the last couple hours navigating through Alchemy Architects' newly redesigned weeHouse website.  I love it because you can see houses they've built, projects in planning, and you can even build your own weeHouse.

First LEED Platinum Healthcare Facility in World!

Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas

Green buildings, with their natural light and excellent indoor air quality, have the potential to make a big difference in the healthcare industry.  At some point, there’s going to be the world’s first LEED Platinum healthcare facility in the world and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas just might be the location to do it.  The 32-acre, $200 M project is on schedule to take LEED Platinum, if everything goes as planned.  The pictures are magnificent and we here at Jetson Green think it would be great if no one ever had to go inside!  TBG Partners was kind enough to provide photos of the work they’re doing on the project, which includes site planning, sustainable design, and landscape architectural services.

Z-Glass House, 400 sf of Green Modern

The Z-Glass Home

You’ve probably heard of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company … their houses have been featured in Time, Domino, USA Today, and the New York Times, to name a few publications.  The home pictured above is different from their other homes, which have that traditional, A-frame-esque shape.  All Tumbleweed homes are sufficiently small, but this home is modern.  It’s 400 sf of green modern.  The Z-Glass House is a stationary house, meant to be affixed to a foundation.  You buy the plans and find a contractor to build it for you (with costs ranging in the $100 – $200 psf range).  Or you can build it yourself.  Check the layout, too.  Such a great looking home, with a kitchen, bedroom, living room, and bathroom, what else do you need?  Add a little solar on the roof, or maybe even a Skystream, and call it done.
