Here’s a look at a really interesting home, built on what we in the Northstate would call a Butte. It’s a singular setting, and the unique postmodern circular house rises to the occasion. The brief video starts after a short commercial.
Wow, only $750K? Let us know if you’d like to buy it.
Here’s a link to a cool slideshow from the LA Times of a contemporary designed small home that looks terrific. I really like how well thought out it is in use of space and light. And of course it would have to be carefully planned. That’s smaller living space than many garages alone in car-centric suburban Redding. Click on the image to go to the slide show.
“Our desire for independence has made us dependent. On automobiles. On cheap energy. On transfer payments between governments. On debt.
Our expectation of plenty, and our expectation to pay only a portion of the full cost of growth, has led to a scarcity of resources. Our approach to land use now constrains us, growing our financial commitments at an alarming rate. It threatens real American prosperity with long-term economic stagnation and decline.
We can do better.
Announcing Strong Towns, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization focused on the root of these systemic problems: our land use patterns—the way we have designed our towns and neighborhoods.
Strong Towns are viable places. Join us to make your community a Strong Town.”
