For those of you on the East Coast, there’s now a weeHouse on Seneca Lake in New York that’s available for rent. The Finger Lakes prefab features a bamboo interior, Kohler fixtures, Anderson windows, and a small footprint carrying 1,000 square feet of space. That’s two bedrooms and two bathrooms and pretty much all the relaxation one could handle.
Cabin Fever, a Florida-based company with an office in California, makes some slick green structures that can be used as weekend retreats, home offices, extra bedrooms, sheds, and anything else along these lines. Shown here is the Maxwell Cabin. It’s a 320 square-foot model that sells from $32,500, depending on options.
Reclaimed Space is teaming up with Ecofabulous again to showcase one of their prefabs made from reclaimed materials at Dwell on Design. The rustic prefab will measure 28′ x 14′ — a little bigger than last year’s 400 square-foot rehab — and built with materials from old deconstructed structures, including an 1830s German farmstead home, in Austin, Texas.
We’re fascinated with small houses like this one in Jackson, Wyoming. The “park model” home was featured on the Tiny House Blog the other day, racking up a slew of comments. Referred to as the “Caboose,” it turns out the home was built with SIP walls and roofing (for energy efficiency) and has bamboo flooring, a dual-flush toilet, LED lighting, and an exterior cladding of both rusty metal and cedar siding. It cost $95,000 to build but can be rented if you’re near Jackson Hole Campground.
Due to the popularity of the Shack, an off-the-grid house in West Virginia, Broadhurst Architects, Inc., decided to design another shelter for individuals looking for a weekend retreat, home yoga studio, backyard home office, or a cluster of small eco-cabins. The firm created The Crib and two home models undeniably inspired by corn cribs.
Recently we mentioned Studio Shed, a startup that builds eco-friendly prefabricated sheds for equipment, storage, and office sheds. The company just installed its sixth modern shed in Boulder and has delivered four others to California. In completing these ten projects, Studio Shed has perfected the overall prefabrication and shipping experience provided to customers and is now offering a 5% discount on orders through June 15, 2010.
