“The Dr. Seuss Of Home-Building”

March 24, 2008 at 3:15 pm (amazing things, art, design/gadget lust, neat things)

Dan Phillips builds whimsical houses out of discarded materials. They’re lovely creations, deliberately affordable to working families. Phillips thinks “affordable” means between $20,000 and $50,000 — i.e., actually within the means of the working class. Under his program, anyone with enough money to buy some tools and a steady job — no matter what the salary — can build their own small house from salvage.

So many merits. Not only are they beautiful, they’re green! Not only green, but available to everyone! Not only available to everyone, but DIY and anti-corporate! Swoon!
