Future Cottage Is Halfway There
The latest build-out updates on our 650ish-square-foot straw-panel house. Plus, a timely request for YOUR valuable input on tile colors...options inside😎.
Welcome back to our “Future Cottage” series, tracking the progress, the challenges, and the breakthroughs as we build a modern, energy-efficient cabin for around $120k. As part of our ATA Paid Family, more updates will be on the way, so stay tuned as our Future Cottage finds its groove…and eventually becomes a (really cool) home.
Holy hell, we’re DOING IT—Future Cottage a few days before two feet of snow fell from the sky. Also, see that strip of exposed concrete at the base? I need your advice about it at the bottom of this newsletter…help!
Welcome back to Future Cottage. It’s been a minute since I last shared updates here, but only because it’s been winter, and a construction site in freezing, dreary gray temps can be a little depressing. Not to mention many feet of snow piling up made me seriously anxious about staying on our timeline, something we’re already a little bit behind on. But WHATEVER…we are building an actual house, and when you are building an actual HOUSE, you just have to roll with it, snow dumps et al. Here’s the latest…plus, we need your advice on a very important design detail (see below:).
