    An alternative to this cute little house would be a “Park Model” which would have up to 400 sq ft with starting prices around $30K. They’re mini mobile homes, of sorts, but are categorized as travel trailer–even though they’re moved very infrequently, if ever.

    I think the problem is that the point of reference for designers and the editors here is a Manhattan apartment or a San Francisco apartment.

    99% of the people who you might want to consider this design haven’t got $55,000.00 for a car, another comparison that doesn’t make it in “fly-over” country.

    There is no mortgage money flowing. Credit scores are at an all time low. Thousands are losing their homes or squatting illegally until the Sheriff comes.

    While this may be an interesting design exercise, only the wealthy can afford to be “green” at these prices.

    Are you f#*%ing kidding me!!! A $230 per square foot matchbox. The designer “hopes” to one day produce it for $50k?! Am I to assume that would be his cost? What if he wants to make a profit? If you fools want to live the rest of your lives in a rediculously-priced sardine can to repent for your eco sins, be my guest. I just purchased a foreclosed condo at public auction for $8500. 1250 SF, 2BR, 2BA and a new community pool in a decent neighborhood. After another $12k in green remodeling including foam insulation, new doors, new windows, CFLs, and Energy Star A/C and appliances, I’m all in at just over $20k. It’ll save me a ton on utility bills, too. These eco designers are con artists preying on your eco guilt.
