Images of Living in the 100k

We decided to take an afternoon this week to take some photographs of the 100k as it is currently being lived in by Chad, Courtney and Teague. It was a good time hampered only by a tired Teague and my very limited photography stills. Despite those limitatios, we think we got some pretty good shots that illustrate one way to use the flexible space our LOFT model provides. Here are a few of my favorites and there are plenty more on our Flickr page.

These images were somewhat inspired by our new found fascination with the Unhappy Hipsters site. So, if you have any captions you would like to give us for these pictures, have at it in the comments. I think you might come up with some particularly good ones for this pic (it already makes me laugh) . . .

100k Unhappy Hipsters

I would like to remind all of you of those who have helped us out with artwork and furniture throughout the house. Artists Jon Olivieri, Chris Clarke, Marie DesMarais, Sam Wittchen, Matthew Hollerbush and Bruce Reinfeld have art featured in the 100k. Fosters was a great help in furnishing the house, as were specific designers like Kaleo Kala (kitchen stools), Bench Dog Design (reclaimed wood table) and my father Curt Darling (still need to make the man a website) who made the birch ply cat box you see in the corner of the above picture. We highly recommend the work of all of these people and thank them for their involvement.

If you have any questions or comments on the pictures you know where to put them.

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.

LOVE IT. I want to live in one!

Chad, Courtney and Teague look like Very Happy Hipsters, and rightfully so!

3 Marie February 26, 2010 at 6:30 pm

Nice work on the pics…the light is really nice. Very artsy and the house looks great!

“Unhappy Hipsters” caption for the last/bottom pic:

The polyethylene baby robot filled a space in their lives that they hadn’t committed to as yet. They knew that a Real one DIDN’T come with an ‘on/off’ switch, or a remote. THAT is what stalled that commitment….

(I know, evil, but Hey….everyone knows the drill.)*L*

(I’m curious….how did they get Teague to hold still in that pose for that pic? It looks like he’s on the verge of levitating, or making a leap off the table….)

Wow good job on the the pics they really show off the house!! (btw, Courtney your new haircut is beautiful!)

Teague is doing a magnificent job sitting up. Any comments on your experience with the house yet? Air quality, cooking, heating bills, comfort? And there’s no clutter! What was it like getting rid of stuff, and paring down your possessions to a (much?) smaller set? What’s it like living with less “stuff”. Is it hard to maintain? Do you have any rules like: if you bring in a new (mug, tee shirt, whatever), you have to toss an old one out?

What a nice house! And such well-adapted inhabitants.

I’m curious; between Teague and the noise of an urban environment, how does the 100k house manage sound? Have any of the green or cost-saving measures taken during design and construction had an effect on the way sound travels through much of the shared space?

Thanks everyone for the compliments!

Goran – as far as the house – we love living here. The heating/air quality is great – no drafts or hot/cold areas of the home. I can honestly say this has been the only home I have ever lived in where I have not been freezing in the winter. And our utility bills are great – very low. I am compiling a spreadsheet to show what they are month to month, and will get back to you on that one. As far as paring down our possessions, there is nothing I like more in the world than getting rid of stuff. So it was really fun and easy for me. It also makes everything easier to clean.

Mike – as far as the sound issue – indoors you can hear what is going on throughout the home. With Teague, it has not been an issue at all. For his first 4 months I barely used his monitor, because I could always hear him (even now I only use it when in the back yard). I purchase a sound machine that makes ocean noises so he wouldn’t be able to hear us as much when he is asleep. It works great, and I think as an added benefit, he has become a heaver sleeper. Every parent wants that in a child!

For the noise of the urban environment question…I am not quite sure what you mean, but I assume you are referring to traffic and other outdoor noises. Honestly, I have lived in the city so long, I don’t even hear stuff like that anymore. But I do think our home has superior insulation that does help reduce the noise levels.

And finally – thanks Brian! I do love my new hair!

Fantastic “Unhappy Hipsters” caption Jerry! It’s a new goal of our to be included on their site…

Wow, I just spent many hours over the past week reading all of your archived posts and catching up on your progress. I can’t tell you how impressed I am with your designs, choices, and most importantly, your perseverance.

I’ve been dreaming of building modern, green, and affordably in Austin, Texas for several years now. In fact I found your blog by searching “modern green 100$ sqft”– pretty much the first hit was you guys. It’s great to see you have been successful at keeping the costs down while using sustainable building methods and products, and in a design aesthetic that I find to be quite beautiful.

Thanks for taking the time to document your ideas and activities.

Here’s another Unhappy Hipster caption for the last picture.

The young couple have finally come to the realization that the Eames’ never designed a diaper genie.

Tell dad that the kid is too young to throw up in the air … you ought to wait till he can walk. And …. get an ugly plastic gate fixed at both top and bottom of the stairs asap.
The house looks great with people and things in it.
