Ecological Living and all that goes into it. Here are some of my favorite Architectural Plans and ideas for rural sustainable living, off the grid. Surely, if I had it to do all over again, Architecture would have been added to my metier. It's never too late!

Shipping Container Home / ISBU - Sketchup Animation
14 - 40' high cube containers. Stacked
and modified for residential use. 2240 Sq. Foot 4 bedroom / 2 bath / 4
car garage. The roof has a 5/12 pitch and is built using 31 - 40'
pre-engineered roof trusses spaced 24" apart. The foundations are 3
solid 1' wide by 6' 6" footings with embedded 10" x 1/2" steel plates
used to weld the containers to. It stands 1' above the ground.
section plane / section cut animation proved to be rather difficult at
first but once I learned the method it wasn't too hard to complete. It
was exported at 1920x1080 @ 10 FPS. I built this in Sketchup in order
to more easily relay my vision to potential builders vs. just telling
them verbally what I was looking to do. I hope you guys like it...
