For those of you who made it to this year’s particularly prefabulous Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles — I didn’t attend … I was in a very steamy Hotlanta at the Go Green Expo with fellow blogger Siel (check out her super coverage here) — you may have had the pleasure of stepping inside Austin-based Reclaimed Space’s 400 square foot prefabricated home made with reclaimed 100-year old oak and pine. The home's stylish, sustainable interiors are courtesy Ecofabulous. Interested in moving in?
Well, too bad. It’s sold. The home was actually auctioned off on eBay — all proceeds went to LA-area Habitat for Humanity chapters — for $75,100.
The home is a real beaut. BusinessWeek describes it as "kind of a cross between a shabby chic country house and the Unibomber’s cabin." In addition to the reclaimed wood that was taken from a down-and-out barn, it boasts 85 percent recycled newspaper insulation, an outdoor shower, a Caroma Profile smart toilet, low-e windows, and vintage furnishings that have been reupholstered with organic wool and cotton, recycled PET fabric, or natural latex.
