Eco-shed-james-glave-exterior

I imagine you've seen some of the 10 "insanely" green sheds in a recent publication of Popular Mechanics.  I read the article and was captured by the Eco-Shed, a structure that cost owner and author James Glave about $100,000 to build.  With the help of Dan Parke of Salal Architecture, Glave put together an incredible low-impact writing studio. Check it out.

That’s two bedrooms and two bathrooms and pretty much all the relaxation one could handle.

Jackson-hole-camp-park-side

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. Turns out it 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.
