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. At Logical Homes we strive to design homes that are appropriate for the era we live in. We believe that the options available to progressive homebuyers are limited and we have chosen to do something about it. Related:  Pre-Fab ArchMini-Home

Cargotecture METALAB » Home Page Loq•kit - Modular Interchangeable Adaptable Reusable House Parts $99K House Series: Core House » Swamplot: Houston's Real Estate Landscape Next featured entry to the $99K House Competition: This design from Houston’s Glassman Shoemake Maldonado Architects. The firm calls its design the Core House: Like many of the existing homes in the Houston neighborhood, the CORE house is a compact, single story structure that uses pier and beam construction. The CORE house is powered by a “core” module, defined as an unchanging, narrow mechanical/plumbing spine. The body can be built to suit a family’s needs, while the CORE remains the same. The core’s versatile design allows it to correspond with small, medium, and large homes. The CORE house’s orientation and window placement allow for cross ventilation from the southeast breezes. Swamplot is featuring home designs by participants in the 99K House Competition sponsored in 2008 by the Rice Design Alliance and the Houston Chapter of the AIA.
