Fun Curb Appeal, Plan 25-4578 grabs your attention and doesn't let go. The intersecting roof planes create an exterior with tons of dynamic energy. A see-through fireplace gives warmth to both the living room and the bedroom, which connects to the luxurious bathroom through the closet.
Imagine if you could walk the best model homes throughout the country, hunting for the latest design ideas for your new home? The next best thing -- for those of us who don’t have a six-figure travel budget -- may be to take a virtual tour through winning projects in industry design competitions. Even better is to take that guided tour from one of the country’s leading architects. Ed Binkley, a Tampa-based principal with BSB Design, recently mined the galleries for the latest trends. Here’s what he found.
Five Houseplans.com designs were chosen for phase one of the project (which includes 25 tiny homes for single people and couples), and each design is completely different. The reason is simple. Most of the residents are coming from institutions like homeless shelters or senior apartments where every living space is the same, says the Rev. Faith Fowler, the CCSS’s executive director. We wanted to instill pride in the people that no one else has a house like theirs.
Once tenants move in, they pay minimal rent and utilities (e.g. $300 a month rent for a 300-square-foot home and an estimated electric bill of less than $35 per month). After three years, tenants are offered a contract to rent to own their homes within four years. This lengthy process is designed to help residents become disciplined about bill paying and the responsibilities of home ownership.
