I've been a big fan of this home design since late last year, and after recently moving to Maryland, I decided to take a Sunday drive out to Cabin John today and view the site. The house is even more impressive and beautiful in person. I would love to build one of these myself at somepoint down the road.Congrats on a truly beautiful home design.
I'm glad you went out and made a visit. I wish I could drop in as often. Credit must go to the builder owner for sweating and revising every detail to make it better; and to EcoSteel for sticking their necks out to fab the design with the frame sticking out like this. Its turned out better than I hoped and makes the most of the system building.
It's amazing how the photos don't properly convey the scale; it's a very large home for such a small footprint. I also really love the space efficiencies in the design. The owner will certainly be happy with the final product, I'm sure.
I know - 30 x 30 is not a big footprint, but how many larger houses have a room that extends 29ft in two directions. Then in the vertical, its boxy and feels tall. The steel frame is also on a giant scale and of course goes all the way to the roof. And the fact that its out of the ground by like 4ft also contributes to the towering feeling.
Nice variation on the theme, Greg. Steel isn't as forgiving as wood, but it gives your design a 'crisp' quality that IMHO looks great.
Sorry I'm a little late to the party, but I have been diligently trying to finish this little beauty. I would like to extend an invitation anyone who would like a tour of Greg's design to drop me a note: John@allenbuiltinc.com
That is very kind of you John - perhaps we should organize an open house, and I'll come down too.
Love the house, looks great!
another great looking house, greg.
So what's the latest on the 3030? Has it been completed?
Done! Occupied!I don't think all the paperwork for the LEED cert has gone in yet. Hoping for 2010.Also make sure you check out the XHouse2 in my modern house plans - inspired by the 3030 House and designed for regular ol' wood construction:http://www.lamidesign.com/plans/planscat/0965/0965pg.html
