Obviously, as evidenced by this blog, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make the 100K House project come to fruition. The research that Nic and I do is covered in detail, but the work of our key partners is not always captured in the same manner. The architects on the project, Interface Studio Architects (aka ISA), have put in countless hours on this project and have gone through dozens of iterations of facades, roofs and floorplans to get to the final product.
Two people at ISA were instrumental in our project. The most well-known is Mister Brian Phillips who is the Principal and founder of ISA. The other is Miss May Narisaranukul, who was the project manager for the 100K House project. We worked mainly with May during the entire design process to hammer out every construction detail as well as making tweaks to many of the internal and external aesthetics of the homes.
May has recently moved to a new position at the KlingStubbins architecture firm, so we wanted to give her some props for the work she did on the project here and now. May does a mean sketch and even fiercer spreadsheet. To give a bit of insight into how her design process works, we have uploaded a bunch of her sketches over the past few months into our flickr album and displayed them below for your viewing pleasure. You will see some details that look familiar, some that we haven’t discussed yet and others that will be put in the files for possible future use.
We hope you enjoy the sketches and give a shout out to May and wish her luck on her new position in the comments. We couldn’t have created the 100K House without her.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
