Costa Rica Container Living

So even though there is no love lost between the country of Costa Rica and I, I do appreciate this fantastic container home built just outside of San Jose. Its beautifully done with a great idea to insert a clerestory level in the middle of the two containers which also allows rooms to be a tad wider than the 8' the container gives you and allows for full house ventilation to cool the entire home with no air conditioning.

Its simply appointed and finished out so cleanly. And the best part, it was only $40k so the homeowners live there debt free (the biggest goal of my life). Just another fantastic example of what you can do with containers (especially when you are not hampered by U.S. building code hassle) with a tight budget.

Check out more on Inhabitat who featured this project on their site today. Happy Container Friday!

The Ultimate Home - I am in LOVE!

I can't even explain how much I love this home, its honestly the house I dream of, the house I want to build and I think we might be heading in the right direction.

This home is featured today on Jetson Green, one of my favorite blogs and the home is built by Free Range Building Company.

It is constructed from mostly salvaged materials and the attention to every detail is absolutely stunning. Its truly one of the most exciting homes I have seen, ever. 

I gotta stop drooling and start planning......oh, little house in Walla Walla, how I do love you!
