Build the Most Spacious, Eco-Friendly Home on Earth in Just 10 Short Weeks
the "Inhabitat" website says it all in its slogan "design will save the world". The site is all about eco friendly structures and designs that encourage the use of sustainable and renewable products that lessen the environmental impact left behind. If you love green designs, you can probably get lost on this site for hours. However, before you go off on a tangent, take a look at this article on the "Inhabitat" website for a beautiful eco-friendly timber frame home, that was built in just 10 weeks. Of course it wasn't built from the ground up, the owners hired an architect to transform the already standing bungalow into this unique and interesting contemporary green home. It's small but still displays the illusion of spaciousness with all the white walls that reflect the light from all angles. It has a special attention to detail, and the craftsmen spent extra care in designing certain pieces, like the oak and glass staircase for example.
Complete with a garage, four bedrooms, an L shaped porch wrapping around the house, and finally a balcony off the back... this home has everything you need and more. You would never guess it's an eco friendly home, seeing as it looks so sleek and modern. However, once you start browsing through the photos, you can see how extra care was taken to boast the beautiful properties of exposed wood and natural elements. The house is beautiful and fascinating to look at, and it's even more impressive that it took such little time to transform. This is definitely worth adding to your book marks of eco friendly homes. If you're looking to build your own someday from scratch, or are thinking of converting your existing home, it's all possible! And the "Inhabitat" website will show you how. So go ahead and start browsing!
