I've actually been intrigued by pre-fab homes lately. And as they no longer only come in the "double-wide" style, many designers have been creating their own eco-home pre-fabricated versions! I can't tell whether I really like the very modern, flat style of them; I think I need to be rich so that I can have two homes: one modern and eco friendly, the other old, creaky and worn-in (but I'd still like to "green" the old one as much as possible!).

Below are a couple examples I like:

Another interesting trend are the homes created from retired shipping containers.

I especially like the over-run earthyness of the Seatrain Container Home above, as if nature is reclaiming the metal home.

"...a wonderful study in simplicity and light."

I love pretty much everything about this house.

Let there be light!

I recently happened upon this lighting vision on Remodelista, who had it from the designer, John Giacomazzi. It's actually a DIY and I really hope to find the perfect place to try it myself someday!
