Article of Interest

I'm not usually a big fan of the Architecture critic our local rag here in Philly, but for once she has a decent article: Changing Skyline: Building a McMini

Interestingly they're using SIPS, which is what we intend for our house (see previous post). Now I realize that prices don't scale linearly, but given their cost (around $100,000, not including land, etc.) I'm hopeful that we will be able to bring our house in at a reasonably price point too (do the math and they're somewhere around $100/sq ft).

I've been loosely following the $100K house for a while now. They've documented a lot about the design and construction process on their website:

Lots of good pictures, videos, drawings, and diagrams. Check it out.

Thanks for the tip! This looks really interesting and useful, wish we'd know about it awhile ago.
