New Frontier Tiny Homes is owned and operated by David Latimer, Zac Thomas, and Eddie Latimer, who seek to develop tiny houses on wheels for people to live in a more sensible way. They hope to show people that they can live economically, socially and environmentally-friendly without compromising on aesthetics. Their latest creation, the Alpha Tiny House, combines their expert construction skills with a Japanese technique for keeping fire, bacteria and fungi naturally at bay called Shou Sugi Ban.  This wood burning technique was applied to leftover cedar wood from a barn, while its cozy interiors make for a lovely contrast inside. Related: Towable Riverside tiny house packs every conventional amenity into 246 square feet   The interiors are where this home shines: filled with storage, transformable furniture, vintage and classic design pieces, as well as an eight-person dining table, it is surpisingly large. A hidden  loft bedroom also fits in the space, and a complete kitchen with the latest appliances shows living outdoors doesn’t always mean roughing it. The pop-up home is completed by a Jacuzzi tub, a modern shower, and composting toilet for a touch of modern-rustic. + New Frontier Tiny Homes Via My Modern Met

Comments Off on This Kitchen Fantasy You Just Have To Read

My time in the kitchen often reads like that famous Thomas Hobbes quote – nasty, brutish and short. Sometimes, however, I dream.  I pretend that if I had more beautiful things in my kitchen, I would be transformed into Julia Child. Meal prep would…

Comments Off on Thomas Heatherwick’s V&A Waterfront Gallery in Cape Town Will be Carved From an Old Grain Silo

42 vertical concrete tubes and a distinct lack of open space might not sound like ideal conditions for an exhibition of modern African art, but for Thomas Heatherwick it’s just another puzzle to solve. The architect plans to integrate the heritage of an industrial grain silo into the new V&A Waterfront in Cape Town , which will feature artwork from the personal collection of Jochen Zeitz , a German collector, entrepreneur, and ex-CEO of Puma.

Comments Off on Atlas Chugged: How GPS Tracking and Mapping Can Help You Save Tons of Money in Gas

The constant need to fuel your car and the emissions that doing so releases into the air can be incredibly frustrating for motorists, and more so, those that are eco-conscious. With the focus slowly shifting towards zero emission cars , there is hope on the horizon for those of us sinking significant portions of our paychecks and social conscience straight into the gas tank. The truth is, however, not every one can afford to buy a new fuel-efficient automobile , and if we can, the payout or reimbursement certainly isn’t immediate. For the time being, there is one prime option that those of us looking to help our wallet and the environment can take. That option is a three-letter acronym that most of us use, not in terms of less fuel usage, but for getting somewhere on the fastest way possible. Although it might not be via the fastest route, as it turns out, your GPS may just help you use less gas in your travels.
