Yesterday I promised I would share more news from Adrienne, our Kiwi friend who recently returned home to New Zealand to buy a “summer” home. Summer is in quotes because when it is winter here in Michigan it is summer in New Zealand. Today we get to see pictures of her new place. Above is a picture of sections of the house being installed.
“The correct name is Modular Container Housing. If you want to see some amazing photos Google "container house pictures"....they make mine look a bit boring. People build these all over the world, mostly Europe, and have done so for many years. Housing has been trending to smaller ecological footprint in style, for about three decades as cities become more and more congested. We really don't need 4,000sq. ft. for mum, dad and two kids, wasting money heating and cooling it when we are gone most of the day anyway.“
Thanks you Adrienne for sharing your new home with us. It is adorable and really has me thinking about being more "eco friendly." BYW, Adrienne says that if anyone has any questions just let her know. You can contact her by leaving a comment here on the blog or sending me an email.
