NY Times Eco House

This new-build eco house in California shown in the New York Times 'Building Green Cheaply' feature is just gorgeous; especially the whole window-wall of glass in the master bedroom.

Made of a prefabricated steel shell with concrete, glass and acrylic walls and concrete sprayed onto wire mesh the house has super-green credentials such as recycling water for irrigating the garden and solar energy panels.

Shredded jeans encased in wire mesh insulate the ceiling and walls of the living room. Red-lacquered Ikea cabinets, topped with the same black-stained concrete as the floor, define the open kitchen.
