Numen Development, LLC : FAQ Numen Development, LLC : FAQ How does the cost of container construction compare to traditional home construction? As with any kind of construction, there are a wide range of variables that impact the overall cost. Many of those are driven by the owners’ preferences on mechanical systems, structural components, and interior finishes (much like options on a new car). These choices can affect the overall construction budget for a home to the point of doubling it.
LittleDiggs LittleDiggs Size: 400 sq. ft.Location: East Village, New York CityArchitect: Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture Storage, restraint, and efficiency were key in carving this bachelor’s studio in the East Village into a live-work sculpture for a grown-up. Living and working in just under 500 square feet, Michael Pozner, Head of Retail Development for American Apparel (which is based in LA), had been pushing the limits of what his apartment, in its current configuration, would accommodate. He’d purchased the studio back in 1999, before the boom of the last decade, and wasn’t anxious to move. But between his office needs and his many toys and quirky art pieces, the apartment was jam-packed and nothing had a place. The solution was ultimately about exploiting every opportunity for storage, and then combining those spaces and the kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping loft into an intricately sculpted wood-paneled central service core.

The ability to button-up and secure remote cabins helps thwart would-be thieves. Tiny buildings made from shipping containers are naturally easy to secure when left mostly intact. Cutting holes for windows and doors not only opens the home up with natural light, it opens opportunity for break-in. In this design exploration I show how windows and glass doors could be sealed simply with some hinged and lockable steel shutters. Tiny House Design

Tiny House Design

A paradigm shifting change is sweeping the globe and shaking the foundation of the current establishment – people are empowering people. At some point a critical mass of innovators and early adopters will force the establishment out of the driver’s seat and put the meek back at the helm. This sort of revolution won’t happen at the end of a gun barrel, but by sharing information and ideas that empower each other. The Acquisition Paradigm As the current paradigm – built on a single-minded focus on acquisition – requires every increasing economic growth and the increasing centralization of control to operate. It’s not a conspiracy or plan, this is just how the societal model around us works. Tiny House Design » Kits / Prefab Tiny House Design » Kits / Prefab

Congratulations go to Sheila Blake, Code Administrator for the City of Houston Public Works and Engineering Department, and Amanda Tullos, AIA, LEED AP, and Director of the Houston office of Green Building Services, and, of course, the Houston City Council for having the foresight to adopt such a far-reaching document. Many people worked very hard to achieve "Appendix R," and most certainly the appendix can be a model of how large metropolitan areas can respond to the social issues of affordable housing and overburdened landfills. Every town, city, and metropolitan area in the nation has a procedure--adopted by that municipality--to ensure that new construction is done in such a way that the public health and safety are protected. Typically, this is done through the adoption of a building code, which specifies a minimum standard of protection for all construction. phoenixcommotion phoenixcommotion
Swamplot: Houston's Real Estate Landscape » Houston, Texas real estate development, home buying, landscape, and design Got big plans for Saturday night? These 6 Victorian-era Second Ward rowhouses will be parading down 8 blocks of Garrow St. past Settegast Park east of Downtown to new spots further east, in time to escape the construction of some impending townhomes on their longtime lots. The move was originally scheduled for early last week, but was postponed because of a damaged utility pole discovered along the route.
