The Little Easy

This is definitely on the larger side of small homes, but it has 2 bedrooms and everything is reletive to the number who live in the space.  Also being that it is a LEED certified home and still around (guessing here) 1000 square feet I thought it was post worthy.  Other interesting facts is that it can be built for under $100k, it is hurricane proof, it is handicap accessible, integrates food production and is a stellar design. This house was chosen as a winner in a LEED design competition and will actually be built in New Orleans.

At the end of the photos there is a link that will expand to show the insane amount of detail and thought put into this house.  They considered the environment, location, design to foster community building etc etc etc it is a lot of text, but I encourage you to check it out.  It is this level of thoughtfulness that drives great design,  it is not a house built by a checklist of specs, but a house driven by a philosophy and good design; This is what cookie cutter housing lacks.
