Gallery: PREFAB FRIDAY: Gingerbread Lotus House!


The only thing better than beautifully designed green prefab is edible green prefab! One of our favorite green architects Michelle Kauffman, in honor of the holiday season, has designed a yummy version of her awesome zero energy mkLotus, made entirely from gingerbread cookies and aptly named the GingerLotus. And this isn’t just a one-off project for Michelle and her family to enjoy, but a kit and set of instructions for building your own edible mini green prefab house, right from the comfort of your own home!

Become a green architect, (and teach your kids about green architecture) through the yumminess of gingerbread. Take your modern gingerbread house construction to a new level with her downloadable plans to make your own.

    I love the mk, it looks sweet in gingerbread too (no pun intended). Ok, maybe a little pun intended. Good find.
