Ecologist’s Prefab Home Sweet Home

Two years ago, the American Institute of we choice cialis available in india Architects put up a challenge: design a house in which a US Fish and Wildlife Service Ecologist in Residence could live and conduct research. Challenge met. Many unique ideas were put forward and three designs took away awards. Two are very…unique…as innovative prefabs tend to be, and so I liked the third the best because it has the eco-technology without losing the generic levitra sale home-sweet-home feeling.

Two Spanish architects, Raphaelle and Alfredo Maul of Maul Dwellings, have designed The Landscape House, blending practical ecological science with architectural art.

The Landscape House is only today levitra soft generic designed to be sat on only now levitra pills an east-west axis in rural West Virginia. Its double roof system utilizes wind to improve air circulation, operable louvered shutters on both the north and south maximize passive solar heating and daylighting, and power comes from a photovoltaic system installed on the roof. Rainwater is harvested and candian pharmacies viagra stored under the roof for grey water for fixtures, and is also used as a heat source in cold Virginia winters as it circulates through the radiant heat floor system. A solar dehumidifier provides the drinking water.

Using resources like water efficiently is a priority, so the architects included low-flow fixtures. They also included a dry-compost toilet, recycling area, and compost unit. And of course the cheapest propecia online environmental footprint is way up there on the to-do list, so the materials for creating The Landscape House are locally sourced, recycled and renewable, and the house can be easily taken apart and set up in different locations.

I don’t think there’d be any problem in finding a number of people who would want to live in it – I’d live in it! (Then again, I’d also live in a prefab upside down canoe, as long as it is awesome and as off-grid as possible.) So, now the only thing left to do is actually build it.

The Landscape House appears to be a well thought-of solution, I am ever so impressed!
I came across this bit of info two days ago through another source. Unfortunately the link to purchase levitra in canada the site of the Architects at Maul Dwellings can’t open the page “” because it can’t find the cheap cialis order online server “”. I am using Safari on a MacBook Pro 3,1 and to be honest the machine works fine so it must be the server.
I would love to find more information on the Landscape House.
Not impressed

I'm an architect, and most of what is cheap canadian pharmacy being proposed here in this "dwelling" is done as a self-congratulatory pat on the back, and is not really any "greener" than a conventional building.

The smug self-satisfaction is simply nauseous.
Sustainably Built Prefab
written by Rachel, September 24, 2010

To see another inviting 'green' prefab home, take a look at House Port's PopUP House. A Top 20 Finalist in Dwell Magazine's 2010 'Houses We Love' competition, the PopUP House is designed to be energy-efficient and low impact without sacrificing style or comfort.

Green building and prefab construction is forward-thinking architecture.
Prefab Trusses in Modern Design
written by prefab trusses, September 14, 2012
Incorporating prefab trusses in the design and construction of that house not only makes way for sustainable and renewable architecture but also give credence to creative engineering that is both sturdy and strong to weather any challenge that the chaotic weather patterns can pose.
