    San Francisco’s Seasteading Institute has signed a memorandum of understanding with the French Polynesian government that brings the world’s first floating city closer to reality. The Seasteading Institute first established in 2008 has long sought to implement their vision of self-sustaining communities that can withstand rising sea levels, partnering with DeltaSync in 2013 to build a pilot project in The Netherlands. The new agreement could see construction on a full-blown city begin in the South Pacific as early as 2019. - http://inhabitat.com/worlds-first-floating-city-one-step-closer-to-reality-in-french-polynesia/ Claire 🐝 Cardwell

    Building in a flood zone sounds like asking for trouble, but that doesn’t have to be the case if you use the right construction techniques. The most basic strategy to avoid rising waters is to raise the buildings above the flood level, but houses that actually float off the ground when waters rush in are impressive. While this type of automated flood defense isn’t as common as elevated homes, we may see it pop up in more houses as flooding threatens to become a regular occurrence around the world. http://inhabitat.com/6-amphibious-houses-that-float-to-escape-flooding/Claire 🐝 Cardwell

    Phuket, Thailand may be overrun by tourists in some areas, but there are still some sweet secluded spots to escape the crowds. The stunning Keemala Eco Resort designed by Space Architects is an exclusive retreat tucked into a lush hilly landscape overlooking the Andaman Sea that is infused with vibrant colors, earthy fabrics and natural materials that pay homage to the area’s pristine landscape. - http://inhabitat.com/thai-eco-resort-delights-guests-with-woven-pods-and-other-sublime-dwellings/ Claire 🐝 Cardwell

    I've loved turf roofing, Claire, ever since I saw it used to good effect in bottle storage buildings in a winery in Pokolbin, NSW many years ago. It has a great cooling influence. I also love the great blend of materials used in this house, unlike some others I have recently seen in trendy high priced housing here in Oz (I'll tag you in a buzz I'm working on).

    Gorgeous home and concept though since I am not a gardening enthusiast, I shudder to think how much work has to go into maintaining the look and feel of a well tended home. Such a home needs to price in the presence of an excellent gardener.

    Vivid colors and a light-filled interior beckon tiny house aficionados to NestHouse, designed by Jonathan Avery of Tiny House Scotland. Avery’s goal was to create a super sustainable, super efficient tiny home, and he succeeded with the gorgeous NestHouse. Blending retro and Scandinavian aesthetics, the tiny home boasts an off-grid option, creative storage, and even a wee bathtub.
    NestHouse has it all: Passive design. Sustainability. Energy efficiency. At 3.4 meters, or a little over 11 feet, wide, and with three options for varying lengths, the house can be 107 to 320 square feet. Starting prices are very reasonable: 17,000 to 38,000 pounds, or almost $21,400 to nearly $48,000, with the goal that the final build will be under 50,000 pounds, or close to $63,000. The home can be hooked up to the grid, fully off-grid, or run on hybrid power.
    Not only does NestHouse offer a quaint, eco-friendly option for everyone from first time homeowners to empty nesters seeking to downsize, now Avery’s homes will help house the homeless too. Social Bite, an Edingburgh-based charity combating homelessness – and supported by Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney – is building a Tiny House Village that will be populated with ten of Avery’s homes.

    Tiny House Trends: Homelessness & Sustainability.

    Having been interested in tiny houses for a while now, I continue to be pleasantly surprised by new developments in the movement. One of the more recent developments in the many uses for tiny houses is making permanent housing the first, most crucial part of a comprehensive strategy to help counteract homelessness. Home ownership is a significant step forward for most members of the homeless community. It is perhaps the most important factor involved in restoring a sense of dignity for a homeless individual.
    As Kelly Schwend, Maureen Cluskey, and Michael Cordell point out in their 2015 SAGE Open study, β€œLifestyles and Goals of Homeless Male Shelter Users,” structured, goal-oriented programming is essential β€œTo move individuals from poverty, addiction, chronic disease, and homelessness to self-sufficiency and reintegration into society.” In other words, a permanent home alone is not enough. Individuals also need a built-in support system and goals to work toward. Therefore, the addition of a network of career mentors, coaches, and teachers, for example, helps immensely. http://greenbuildingelements.com/2015/08/20/tiny-house-trends-homelessness-sustainability/

    #7 I've always had a soft spot for log homes, but they don't quite fit in an urban setting and most are rather large, requiring a good-sized plot of land.
    These don't and I've seen a tiny log house that I liked.

    #5 @Randy Keho - I've just come across this stunning Tiny House that I think you might like. It's passive and energy efficient - "At 3.4 meters, or a little over 11 feet, wide, and with three options for varying lengths, the house can be 107 to 320 square feet. Starting prices are very reasonable: 17,000 to 38,000 pounds, or almost $21,400 to nearly $48,000, with the goal that the final build will be under 50,000 pounds, or close to $63,000."

    A friend and I have been giving these tiny houses some serious consideration, We think they would make an awesome winter, if not permanent, home in sunny Florida. We live in the Midwest and we've had about enough of the brutal winters.
    I read recently where they've built a community of tiny houses to serve homeless veterans. I think they're a great idea.

    It may not be PC, but, I like Big old houses; yes, I am bucking the trend. They are the ones that usually get razed to make way for a subdivision, or condos. I find it to be a shame.

    When it rains, it pours. With increasingly unpredictable environmental conditions and the prevalence of catastrophic storms, building safe and secure flood-proof structures is becoming even more vital. Not only do we have to worry about natural disasters like hurricanes and floods, but we will have to battle with rising sea levels, so designs for aqueous living should definitely be on the minds of architects worldwide. Read on for six innovative flood-proof designs that are able to weather the worst of the rising tides.

    #2 Far too often people are building on flood zones or there is too much paving that allows rain water to pool causing floods. These innovations are great, but v. expensive and beyond most people's pockets. I think local government should take steps asap to flood proofing coastal/riverside homes. They should also severely limit the amount of hard impermeable paving.

    Can't follow the link on my iPhone so will have to wait till I'm back home on my Mac, Claire. Meanwhile your buzz raises the question of do we individually flood proof our coastal homes, does one level of government flood proof whole suburbs and regions, or do we continue to do nothing, while watching councils, state and federal governments bury their heads in the sand or push responsibility towards each other, until abandonment becomes the only option? Let's take our lead from the Dutch.
