Wired home by LivingHomes

| June 28th, 2007 | ,

This month’s Wired has a full page spread on the WIRED Home. In conjunction with LivingHomes they invite you to visit this mini site to follow the deconstruction and construction of a simple and efficient sustainable home.

The WIRED Home is where green plugs in. LEED® certified and designed by Ray Kappe, FAIA, the house is prefab to reduce cost and waste. Installation takes only one day. Fully automated to allow for simplicity and control, it is filled with the latest in gadgets, gear and appliances, yet still keeps kilowatt usage low. Even the car is environmentally friendly. Emitting essentially nothing but water vapor, the BMW Hydrogen 7 is the first hydrogen-powered luxury performance sedan for everyday use.

It looks like a pretty cool showcase on reusing old materials AND building new with materials that are thoughtful and efficient.  I wonder when these will become affordable for the masses instead of $4 million?
