True Cost Of A Home

I found this infographic on the true cost of owning a traditional home and thought I would share it with you.

Japanese Earth Hut

This is a really gorgeous earthen brick hut, with great curves and aesthetics, this house stands out!  It has a lofted bed above the bathroom section, but the rest is found on the ground floor in a open and flowing space.  On one side is the kitchen, the other is the living space.  It is also an interesting twist because earth brick houses are typically seen in third world nations, while Japan has some of the most stringent building standards for earthquakes.  To marry this old world tradition, with a new process to develop incredibly strong bricks is really interesting.

Y House

Another great solar decathlon house, this time from the China team.  This house comes in at $248,000 for the whole house, including the solar panels etc.

 

Solar Decathlon 2

Continuing in our series, we have two new videos of houses from the solar decathlon.  The first is from Indiana which is a great example of how a very traditional looking home can utilize these approaches. Next up is a house that severs as a contrast to the first, this is a very modern looking home that will be sure to stand out.

Solar Decathlon

Every 2 years there is an event in Washington DC called the solar decathlon.  This is a competition of 92 universities that come together and create 92 different off the grid houses.  I have been wanting to go for a long time, but this year isn’t my year.  However, they make some really awesome videos for it, so this week I am going to highlight many of them.
