Logical Homes
Welcome to Logical Homes Fifty years ago it was assumed that by now we would all be living in space stations high above the earth. Yet the future didn't quite work out that way. Most of us live on terra firma in homes that (in the rich western world) are built pretty much the same way as those constructed fifty years ago: by people standing out in the sun hammering wood together. At Logical Homes we strive to design homes that are appropriate for the era we live in. We challenge traditional notions of what a house looks like, how it is built, what it is made of and how it performs. We believe that the options available to progressive homebuyers are limited and we have chosen to do something about it.
