The Eco House of your dreams
So, picture this: You. Basking in the sunlight of a perfect day in Palo Alto — or Tahoe — or wherever your 'there' may be.
You're having a particularly good day because you just finished moving into this gorgeous, state-of-the-art tiny house on a foundation. Keys in one hand, lemonade (or something stronger) in the other, you take stock of your incredible new home:
Exquisite features. Elegant modern design. Small but spacious. Has a loft, but isn't lofty.
Simple. Refined. And in a word: You.
Of course it's got the usual stuff:
450 Sq ft. complete with a full kitchen, bathroom, laundry, a bedroom, and a sleeping loft.
But it's not really what is has, but how it has it — sustainability built into every square-inch: Bamboo floors, recycled glass tile, solar panels. This 450 square-foot oasis is (literally) a model for the future of housing, and here you are — right where you like to be — ahead of the curve.
You look out the window. Maybe you see mountains, or perhaps the ocean. Maybe you see your main house — a nice compliment to this new office, yoga studio, or art space. Maybe your son's moving in. Maybe your mom. Either way, this is a big step and it couldn't feel more right.
Another sip of lemonade. A smile.
Then there's the kicker. That familiar excitement with a dash of fear, because the truth just hit you for the hundredth time today —
You stole it.
Okay, you didn't steal it. Not really. I mean, hey, you paid what they asked, right? So what if it was highway robbery.
But they only asked $269,900.
Your land. This house.
Delivered. Installed. Permitted. And so fast. How'd you get so lucky anyway?
Oh yeah. That's right. There was that link at the bottom of the Four Lights blog post. It was a little impulsive. You weren't sure the house was right for you at exactly that moment, but — what the hell — you only live once, right?
You came. You saw. You bought. And now, with great satisfaction, you sip.
