Going Green is Easy with the NW Modern by ideabox

Hey all…I just found this brand new green and sustainable living concept on the market that was invented in Oregon. It’s called the NW Modern from ideabox and the man who created this home was also the brains behind the e-rated appliances, the predecessor to the Department of Energy’s Engery Star Program.

Ideabox is sustainable and green in both building materials and construction. It’s the hippest and most resourceful thing I’ve seen since Bluetooth technology! This energy efficient pre-fab home is wrapped up in a cool, modern design that is actually affordable!

For the environmentally responsible consumer this cabin is cool and sleek. I mean we’re talking living large here in 400 sq. feet of luxury in a clever high end pre-fab home with a very intelligent design.

The research I’ve done shows that ideabox uses environmentally friendly products and construction with wireless technologies. Designed with the idea that you can live large in a small space, ideabox is attracting very posh customers. And hey…less can be more! My family is considering it for a vacation home on some land at the lake or the beach. Another thought I have is putting it on my property for when the kids come home. Once you’re in college, staying right with mom is tough. This way, they can have space but still be “home”.

Here is some more information I found on how environmentally friendly ideabox is…

Wireless technology because power lines are SO last year.
Standing seam metal roofing – sustainable and fire retardant
Fiber-cement siding for low maintenance
Galvalume corrugated metal siding for an industrial look and efficient construction.
Bamboo flooring because it’s sleek and renewable
Energy Star appliances and lighting for the best in energy efficiency
Marmoleum countertops, made from renewable resources
Fully insulated walls for maximum energy efficiency
Energy-efficient ENERGY STAR labeled windows to regulate temperature
Less than 2% construction waste because materials are ordered to size
Low volatile organic compound paints for better, healthier indoor air
Duo-flush toilets for water efficiency
Day lighting; windows in all exterior walls and interior re-lite strategies
Tankless water heaters to reduce electricity use

Hi Keith,

This was not intended as an advertisement. My apologies if you felt it was. I have hit on this amazing concept for greener living and a healthier planet that I plan on utilizing in my own environment. I felt with those of us who are interested in greener lifestyles would be interested to know that such an option exists. Hopefully others will see it as an opportunity to promote a different, healthier lifestyle.
