The interior is a smart little space complete with a kitchen, bath, lounge and sleeping loft. Materials were carefully selected for their environmental sensitivity — in fact, a major concern for the project was to use common building materials and technologies to show how straightforward sustainable design can be. The Pod House is also a learning environment for the OSU Solar Decathlon house which we look forward to checking out this September!
